Hi there! I’m Leandra. I’ve been where you are now. Trust me, I get it.
I’m a native English speaker and earned a degree in French and Spanish. I taught French students how to get better at conversational English. But while teaching abroad in a French-speaking country, I struggled to fit in, even though I had an advanced level in French!
Because in my French classes at University, I was mostly taught grammatical rules but I didn’t learn how to have real-life, informal conversations in French. Therefore, I had a difficult time making small talk with native French speakers.
