Nindra, Founder of Happy French and French teacher
I’ve been teaching French as a foreign language for over 7 years, and my various experiences have brought me into contact with a diverse range of students: adults, adolescents, young children, including those with learning difficulties or handicaps.
I’ve often been asked to give children lessons in different sorts of structures, so I’ve been able to experiment with various teaching methods and activities for children, specialising in teaching them to understand and speak French.
Thanks to my 3 years of experience as a children’s educator, my lessons quickly became a mixture of teaching and playing.
Having been a theatre actor for the past 12 years and performing improvisation for 2 years, it seemed only natural that my French lessons for children should be based upon play acting and theatre.
As I became aware of the increase in the number of requests from parents who wanted their children to learn French in a fun and amusing way, I decided to create Happy French to allow everyone to find their voice according to their personality, tastes and expectations. And to that end,so that learning French would be as natural, fun and effective as possible.
