Vincent’s goal is to make learning French fun and easy through games, music, art projects and imaginary adventures. He designs curriculums to cater to the specific learning needs of each individual student, and at their own pace. For this first session at Spring Hill, he will mostly use the French Method “Les Loustics” to teach and will use the outdoor garden classroom as well to expand learning opportunities.
