i'm now living opposite a small french infants/junior school where the children are starting to learn English. It was another post here gave me the idea about 'communicating' Do you think it would be good for me and the children if I spoke to the headteacher about being a 'classroom assistant' perhaps for an hour or 2 weekly, to help them with their english. I'm not a qualified person but did get RSA and GCE in English Language at school when I was much younger also have GCE in English literature. Not mention having tried to study and failed at French for 18 months in the UK before moving to France. Living and speaking french on a daily basis is how I am learning the language still,.
I hate the french grammar - but do understand english grammar - so can't help thinking perhaps doing this would be more beneficial to me since my BI than anything else has been and of course I hope it would help the children because I understand the english culture and nuances of the language.
I know that amongst us with BI's there are several intellectual and variously qualified people out there, I am neither one or another of them so perhaps its a really daft idea on my part. Perhaps my motives are selfish but if we can all benefit in some way, 'porquoi pas' - WHY NOT?
