Lately I’ve been trying to figure out a way to impart my knowledge of the French language here in the states. There are so many great books and lessons out there already, I knew I’d have little impact unless I did something different. I decided to start hosting an online class weekly for my “students” and it’s been a big success! I have a website and a mobile Internet connection at home, so I conduct the class from my kitchen table. It’s great because my students can email me certain requests or even chat live with me, asking for explanations on specific words or phrases. In my opinion, the live class is better than a book as they can really s! ee the different pronunciations of words, and I think my students think so too. For now my tutorials are offered gratis, but in the future I may start charging as a way to earn some extra money. I don’t have the patience to be a real teacher, but hosting this online class is just perfect for me!
