Enchanté et Bienvenue!

Salut mes amis! My name is Mme. Fairley and I am one of three core FSL teachers at Lakewood Elementary.

My philosophy on teaching French is simple:

a) Make lessons fun and engaging!

b) Teach practical French.

c) Spark curiosity and interest in French.

A massive amount of my teaching is done with mnemonics. (I call this style, “Corny memory tricks,” to cover up the fancy word.) Mnemonics turns tough content into easy learning that sticks to your brain forever! We never want to learn something for a test and let that knowledge fade. That’s why I teach with mnemonics- so the important stuff sticks! Examples include making up really corny cool songs, silly catchy rhymes, wacky efficient acronyms!

Check out our homepage regularly to see what the crew is up to!

Nice to meet you! Hope to see you on here again soon!

À bientôt!

-Mme. Fairley

    • Salut Bridgitte!
      I’m so happy to hear you are excited to come to my class! That’s amazing!
      Squat is a great game, very intense! It is really winning in the survey right now!
      Good question! I’d say my favourite part of French class is teaching and learning from all of the students, you included! À demain! À lundi!
