Yasmine Ayadi

I grew up on a French island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. In this environment, I was exposed to diverse cultures and languages, such as Creole. This is how I came to understand how languages are a way to connect deeply with both oneself and others. 

I have a M.A. in French taught as a second language (FLE). I have taught both French and English in France and abroad. I love working alongside students of different nationalities and age-groups with various learning goals. 

In my classes, I always mix grammar, phonetics, conversational French and creative writing. I love to make learning a language fun, interactive and rewarding. You will always leave my class with more confidence and knowledge in French!  

A bientot!
