Q: What would you say you wish for your students after they leave your class, whether having graduated or just moved on to other classes? For them to be fluent in French or for them to have the passion to continue learning French after high school?
A: My biggest wish is that they have fun learning French and are passionate about learning more outside of my class. In my class, our goals are very practical! We work on reaching attainable, practical language goals such as: being able to introduce ourselves, ordering food, talking about our likes and dislikes, and things that students want to be able to talk about. We talk about these goals and assess how we feel about our skills frequently in my class.
