About me

Hi! I'm Abbie, and I am currently a French and Spanish student in my fourth year of study at King's College London. In the summer of 2019 I returned from my year abroad, studying in both France and Spain, from which I gained a real insight into the culture and also the people there. I have loved studying Modern Languages since I was in Primary school, and I am especially interested in all aspects of grammar of the two languages.

Hi! I'm Abbie, and I am currently a French and Spanish student in my fourth year of study at King's College London. In the summer of 2019 I returned from my year abroad, studying in both France and Spain, from which I gained a real insight into the culture and also the people there. I have loved studying Modern Languages since I was in Primary school, and I am especially interested in all aspects of grammar of the two languages. Understanding the grammar of a language is essential in order to do well in the exams, and I can help my students successfully get to grips with each point required at that level. Learning new vocabulary is also an interest of mine, and I think that it is very important for every student to take the time each week to keep up with learning new words and phrases. Do not hesitate to ask me for any advice on university applications; whether it concerns entry to English universities, or what it is like to study at one abroad. At the moment, I am also undertaking Catalan classes, and in the future I would love to learn many more languages!

About my sessions

Making the most of revision materials, such as past papers and mark schemes, is very important to me, since they are a great way to follow the curriculum of each subject. I will help students achieve their goals by firstly assessing what their strengths and weaknesses are, whether it be a particular aspect of grammar, conversation or something else, and then creating lesson plans based on what areas need to be improved; every student is different!

Making the most of revision materials, such as past papers and mark schemes, is very important to me, since they are a great way to follow the curriculum of each subject. I will help students achieve their goals by firstly assessing what their strengths and weaknesses are, whether it be a particular aspect of grammar, conversation or something else, and then creating lesson plans based on what areas need to be improved; every student is different! It is also important to practice mock conversations, in order to improve speaking ability. I will measure progress by using resources such as past papers, which helped me a lot when I did my exams, and also my own resources, such as vocabulary tests that I have created. It is extremely satisfying when you are successfully able to complete a vocabulary test, and hence expand your knowledge of useful words and phrases. I believe that this is fundamental to encourage learning, and to encourage students to really want to do well in their subjects. Language learning should be fun!

The lesson was very helpful for practicing speaking techniques such as pronunciation, intonation, and speed, as well as providing useful grammar points and contextual knowledge.
