Hello and Welcome !
I am Pascale, from Paris. I am the founder of Better your French and teach French to non-Francophone adults and children.
Although I was born and spent a large part of my life in Paris, since 1998, I have gradually been sensitised to cross-cultural living and bilingualism through my own marriage. Our 'family' languages are French and English. I also have a basic Russian knowledge and and am fascinated by the nuts and bolts of all languages.
A stint living in London has given me insight into what it is like for those who find themselves living abroad and wishing to work and/ or settle more into their adoptive country.

I earned a Masters in French as a Foreign Language in 2003 from Paris Descartes University. Since then, I have amassed more than 5,000 hours of teaching experience teaching French as a Second Language and French as a Foreign Language in Paris and London over a 12-year period.
I live in county Yvelines in the town of Maisons-Laffitte, the ideal town – a tourist stop a stone's throw away from Paris.

I use innovative teaching methods when teaching general French Language
I adapt to your needs using a tried and tested pronunciation method, to develop your confidence in spoken French.

I also teach Technical French (Law, Business), due to a 7-year stint as a company lawyer specialising in Commercial Law; I teach written French to a standard that will train you to self-correct or sit the official exams (DELF A1, A2, B1, B2,C1) in French as a Foreign Language or a combination of the two!

Née et ayant principalement vécu à Paris, j'ai été sensibilisée depuis 1998 à l'interculturel par mariage. Nous avons à la maison le français et l'anglais, langues familiales.

Une expatriation à Londres m'a permis aussi de pouvoir me mettre à la place des personnes qui vivent hors de leur pays d'origine et qui veulent travailler et/ou se sentir à l'aise dans leur nouveau pays d'adoption.

J'ai aussi un niveau de russe scolaire et m’intéresse au fonctionnement de toutes les langues.

Après un premier métier en tant que juriste, j'ai entrepris une conversion en 2002 et ma formation s'est étendue sur cinq ans avec notamment un Master 2 de français langue étrangère et interculturalité Université Paris 5 René Descartes et un Diplôme Universitaire de didactique spécialité enfants Université Sorbonne Paris 3.
J'ai plus de 5000 heures de cours de toutes sortes: en entreprise, chez les particuliers, en Université à Paris ou à Londres, en IUT, pour des clients de 5 ans à 94 ans....
Je fais du français général principalement, mais aussi du français de l'entreprise et du français juridique.
J'aime ce que je fais....

The teaching method of Pascale enabled me to learn quickly and contained substantial content. I was given as much homework as I wanted, which was corrected the next time in an quick and efficient way. Pascale clarified the language with different approaches, from comparison with my native language or English, also showing the difficulties that may occur when I would put it into practice. She likes structure and in depth teaching. Being a beginner, I feel now that I do not need to go back over the spoken and written French I learnt with Pascale. The fact that we could interact in English helped tremondously as well.

I have been a student of Pascale's for more than one year. She is very experienced and able to quickly assess a student's level and individual needs and plan accordingly. Her methodology is well-structured and she accommodates each student's individual goal - from a beginner who is wishing to integrate more in the community to more advanced students who e.g. wish to do the DELF exams for professional reasons, pursue further studies in tertiary french institutions or to obtain french nationality. She is very warm, understanding and also very clear in her explanations. I enjoy my lessons with her very much.

I have attended Better Your French phonetics workshop in February 2019. Pascale is an excellent teacher. She is using a system of associating sounds with hand signs that makes it easier to remember all different rules for prononciation. She is patient and is able to give individual attention to everyone in the group, concentrating on the most difficult sounds for each person. You will also receive a lot of printed out materials that will make a great reference tool to help you learn and practice the phonetics on your own. The best part is that those materials are accompanied by the recordings which are invaluable for mastering French pronunciation. I highly recommend Pascale's phonetics workshop to anyone with beginner to intermediate level of French. You will sound much better and more understandable to a native speaker, and you will be able to recognize your pronunciation mistakes and correct them.
