Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to French at Citrus Valley High School. I would like to take this opportunity to present myself to you. I am Madame Marsh. When I first started school, I was a recent arrival to the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg and a second language learner. I have achieved fluency in four languages: English, Luxembourgish, French and German. I have traveled extensively and lived in several countries. I am eager to share my Passion for languages and cultures with my students to inspire them to explore the world.
Your student will learn to communicate in French in all levels of French. We will cover a range of topics addressing all components of language in every lesson: listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition to learning the language, your student will learn about the culture of France and francophone countries to include art, music, dance, theatre, literature, history, as well as local customs and courtesies.
My teaching philosophy is that students learn language successfully by engaging in authentic conversation and by applying newly learned vocabulary and concepts. In order to achieve this goal, the French classroom is a dynamic environment where students talk, sing and work in co-operative groups.
