Considering languages are living entities, my approach will be predominantly practical and conversational, in combination, with grammar, spelling and pronunciation. In this context, I will encourage the reading of fiction works and watching movies in the language taught.
Copywriting, journalism, translation, TV production, language teaching. International travel and experience have been key to my knowledge of languages.
In all, and mostly as a side job, I have never stopped teaching English and French since 1992. My students have benefited from my classes, either by hoping for better job opportunities, social skills, or simply by enriching their cultural wealth.
