I am an online french teacher for foreigners and I have been teaching abroad since 2013 and I am currently living in New Zealand. I enjoy creating fun activities to help my students improve and reflect on some topics. I also work on the french version of this website.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
