I am really keen to continue with my learning of the French language, and my travels to Paris. Two dominant reasons: firstly, I like France, things French, and I like Paris; secondly, learning is good for my brain, and travel is good for my body.
I had completed 6 terms of learning (9 weeks per term) with my tutor, Guy, before he reduced his tutoring due to medical issues. I like his style of teaching, so I followed him to his 'other' institute, across the harbour on the other side of town, earlier in the morning AND on a Saturday to boot. Now I hear from three sources at my previous institute, that there is a bit of a kerfuffle about the new teaching style. The dreaded 'working in pairs' has raised its ugly head. I do not like that style. I do not thrive on that style.
I was going to do a class at both the institutes. However, I like the new institute across the harbour. The class is revision but of a very high order. There are only 5 of us in the class, in comparison with 20 previously. The two hours went so quickly as there was Soooo much participation.
I am endeavouring to set up an email essay writing critique among those disaffected. Hope I get some nibbles.
