I am Yasmine, I am 27 and I currently live in Salvador, Brazil. My father is French, my mother is Brazilian, and my husband is American. I studied German for my Bachelors and then English for my Masters, so I am fluent in four languages. I have lived over twenty years in Paris, then two years in Berlin, Germany, then six months in Oakland, California. I came around to teaching after three years of travelling, because I felt a strong need to share my love of languages and of foreign cultures. I am looking forward to sharing that with you!
Language is huge in adapting to and feeling comfortable in a foreign country. Even if some behaviors are strange, even if it’s a little scary at first, knowing the language allows you to ask questions, communicate with people, find your bearings: it is the perfect way into a place. I am very excited for you to get there! I am very professional teacher, with a lot of patience and humor. I’m all for having fun lessons and have the student’s curiosity and projects lead the class. Maintaining a positive attitude and creating positive language experiences is very important to me, and I will always do my best on that.
French can be a lot of fun! It can be anything we’d like. So, let’s get started!
