English and Culture (b1)


Would you like to know more about British culture in general? Let’s talk about this in English. Why does English food have such a bad reputation? What is the influence of British pop? Was the Queen always such a loved public figure? How has the empire influenced modern England? Why is Constable’s « Hay Wain » such a famous English painting? Etcetera. We will also read excerpts from famous English books.

I have been teaching English to adults for over twenty years. Still, I enjoy sharing relevant information (vocabulary and grammar) about the language with anyone interested in learning English. I first try to find out what motivates a student to learn a language, whether it is for work, for pleasure or to be able to communicate with loved ones living abroad who don't speak French. I am Irish, English is my father tongue, and I have studied English literature at university.
