Welcome to the website of Graham Bishop, French Language Consultant and former Lecturer in French and German at the Open University, Faculty of Education and Language Studies.
I would be pleased to offer my expertise to businesses who require help with translating, letter or report writing, telephoning or practice in conversational French.
On the pages of this site you will find details of my experience as a teacher of mature students at the Oxford University Language Centre, the West Oxfordshire College, the Open University and Open University Residential Summer Schools at the University of Caen, Normandy .
As a result of the practical research into language learning that I carried out as part of my work at the OU (see details on the Research page) I have devised a successful and motivating study method using personalised learning, tailored to the interests of the learners themselves. This is coupled with a way of demonstrating the progress learners are making in a rewarding and encouraging way. This method of motivating learners of languages has been successfully used on fee paying courses I have run and at Open University Summer Schools . It is these tried and tested methods which are adapted to the individual needs of my clients.
