I started my career change a few years ago to become a nomad French language coach, mainly based in Montreal with extended stays in Europe. I love traveling and meeting people from different backgrounds, my clients are actually all around the world.
The sum of my past experiences made me realize 2 things: I'm curious about everything and I want to help others grow.
In my small business owner days, I made mistakes and I learned a lot. About me and about what people need to thrive: a positive environment, encouragements and trust.
All this will foster motivation, which is key to learning. Being a pastry chef also taught me adaptability, discipline and creativity, also important factors in a successful learning journey.
Learning a language is like opening a door to another culture. In this world where English has become the dominant language, mastering French will expose you to a different perspective. If you want to live in a francophone country or even just pass a French exam, you need to be familiar with the cultural context.
