Let me introduce myself: I am Barbara Allen and I lived and worked in France for a number of years and am fluent in French.  I have various language qualifications , including a BA (Hons) and an MA in French Area Studies.
I am passionate about language learning.

I am based in North Tyneside but also work in Northumberland and the Newcastle area and have been teaching mainly adults for several years.

I very much work with you and discuss with you before your course of study how you prefer to learn and what you would like to learn.  From this I devise a course of work that will both stimulate and interest you.

I prefer to use different teaching methods such as pc based activities, audio work and speaking activities.  This stimulates all areas of language learning – listening, speaking, reading, writing.  I am a patient teacher and love to see my learners succeed and will help you in your language learning in any way I can.

I offer classes from beginners to advanced and I have a Professional Graduate Certificate teaching qualification, fully DBS cleared and have taught various groups:

A Level/GCSE Students – Company learners – beginners  – Corporate learners – Advanced legal French – Primary school – KS1/KS2 & Family French  – Adult learners
