Hello, I’m François Viquesnel : I am a native French speaker, born in Paris, France and have taught French Classes in Victoria, BC since February 2009.
I have been teaching and coaching for over 25 years, and began teaching French as a second language when I arrived in Canada, working both in a formal classroom setting (Camosun College and the Monterrey community Center) and as a tutor for individuals or small groups. I really enjoy teaching French, creating a positive, relaxed atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to practice, listen, learn and ask questions.
Individual French Tutoring is my main activity in Victoria.
Sometimes, friends and couples, planning a trip, want to get together and brush-up their French in small conversation groups.
My French classes are based on your needs: I can assess your language capabilities and then custom design your program. Your goal is important to me : it will define your motivation and your engagement in learning French. Click here for more information on what I can offer you.
I love being in Victoria, BC on this amazing west coast. The weather is quite similar to Paris. I also love to share my knowledge about the rich culture of France, its attraction. Planning a trip to Paris and checking out with you what you want to see is one of my big pleasure. I believe that learning a language is also entering a new culture.
