“I’m enjoying using your method more and more. I’m sure you have heard a lot of praise and all kinds of positive feedback, but I want you to know that using AIM is also having some really good effects on my health! I cannot believe that so many Core French teachers still have to scramble constantly, panicking, looking for ideas and materials on the internet. My background is teaching ESL (mostly EFL in previous years) and the program was always more concrete, with fantastic resources from top-notch British publishers. My ESL teaching was surrounded by solid methods, great support and feedback for years and years. It was a true pleasure to teach English in my home country, Hungary, and even more joy to continue my teaching career in Toronto, offering language instruction to students of so many nationalities. ….. Then I decided to learn and then teach French, and I suddenly found myself in a huge mess! Very stressful, ridiculous French-teaching world in Canada. (I hear there have been decades of it!!!) I have tried so many books, worksheets, lessons and ideas from other French teachers, but only now that I seriously switched to AIM, do I really see a true sense of this Core French teaching. (I kind of touched AIM 10 years ago, then I was sucked back into the swamp of mish-mash teaching.) I see the benefits already. I love, for example, how the rewards and positive reinforcement makes such a difference. Teaching 33 gr 7/8 students was a complete nightmare, until I switched to AIM a month ago, and now we are on a dynamic journey together. Totally more work than before but it is so worth it. …Back to my health as a Core French teacher in this country: I literally feel my blood pressure normalize. My anxiety is going. Your created a truly meaningful and fun system!
Thank you! I could go on and on, as I continue this approach, but I’m sure you have many things to do. Many many thanks.”
