About me

About Me:

I am currently in my final year at Durham University studying French and Spanish. I love learning languages and really enjoy sharing this passion with others.

Before I started at University I spent 10 months as a teaching assistant in a French boarding school, planning and conducting lessons independently for pupils aged 10-18, so I already have a lot of experience with teaching and understand the specific difficulties that students may encounter.

Since then, I have also worked in Paris for 6 months, studied for a semester at Salamanca University and spent a Summer volunteering in Seville, all to ensure that my language skills and knowledge of both cultures are as good as they can be!

Sessions:

I am very patient and understanding - I've been in the same position! I'm also incredibly enthusiastic about my subject and make sure that sessions are as fun as possible. After all, the key to nailing languages is discovering how enjoyable they can be and seeing how working on them needn't feel like work at all.

Sessions all depend on what aspect of language you'd like to work on. We can focus on a specific aspect of grammar that you're having difficulty with, work on building vocabulary around certain topics or work on the spoken language to help you prepare for your oral exams.

What next?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Just tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I really look forward to meeting you!

How do I form the subjunctive?

The subjunctive in French can be really hard to get your head around - particularly as it's something we're not really used to in English! But luckily, forming the subjunctive is actually a really simple process - and as soon as you’ve learn the method, you can write and say some pretty impres...

The subjunctive in French can be really hard to get your head around - particularly as it's something we're not really used to in English! But luckily, forming the subjunctive is actually a really simple process - and as soon as you’ve learn the method, you can write and say some pretty impressive, complex-sounding sentences that take your language skills to the next level.

So here’s the simple three-step process to follow for all regular verbs:

1. First, take the 3rd person plural (ils) form of the present tense of the verb

2. Then take away the -ent, to find the stem

3. Finally, add the following endings:

je: -e

tu: -es

il/elle/on: -e

nous: - ions

vous: -iez

ils/elles: -ent

So for example, to put the verb finir into the subjunctive, simply follow the steps:

1. ils finissent (3rd person plural of the present tense)

2. finiss (minus the -ent)

3. je finisse, tu finisses, il/elle/on finisse, nous finissions, vous finissiez, ils/elles finissent (with the endings)

And that’s all there is to it! Of course, there are some pesky irregular verbs that just need to be learnt off by heart...but in general, knowing how to form the subjunctive really isn't as tricky as some may think!
