Welcome to this month’s round up!
I can now share exciting news with you: from September, I am available for visits and support for an extra day each week! You can now book my time on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. This means I can potentially travel further too… I will still be teaching on Mondays and Tuesdays. You can check my availability here at any time.
Have you used a blindfold/eye mask in your languages lessons before? If not, I think you will want to after listening to my latest podcast here! I find it to be an essential accessory in my classroom.
I know some of you have finished school already; I for one am working until this Thursday 18th July. Whether your break has started or it will start soon… I wish you an amazing summer!
I will be back in touch mid-August with lots of ideas for going back to school… but let’s maybe not think about that quite yet!

This very cute story is perfect to introduce greetings in French to young children… but there is a lot more to it!
