Our students are growing up in a world of connectivity. Through technology, they can see new places, and as they travel, they will meet new people. World language education is one way that we can prepare them for this connectedness, for the global society and job market they will participate in. It is crucial that we see world language proficiency and intercultural understanding as essential skills to develop for the future.

Communication is key. My goal as an educator is to prepare students to speak French with real people in real situations. Even my first-year students speak almost exclusively in French from the first class! My classes are designed around interactive activities, where students can communicate in a meaningful way on a variety of personal topics. In my classroom, I find that a healthy balance of movement and technology is important. I love to see my students out of their seats, traveling about the room as they speak French, and spending time outside the classroom when the activity allows. I equally enjoy seeing my students use technology in a way that facilitates their learning, giving them a digital platform for communication. Creating videos, digital stories and audio recordings are some of the ways that students regularly use their devices in French class. It is my hope that as students grow in their ability to communicate in French, they would also learn to think globally, to take risks in pursuit of intellectual growth, to seek to understand others, and to see learning as a lifelong process that they will grow to love.

“Petit à petit, l’oiseau fait son nid.” This is one of my favorite French proverbs. Translated literally, it means that a bird builds its nest little by little. Patience, hard work and perseverance are all requirements for reaching our goals. On the journey to learn a new language, as with so many things in life, we begin with one word, one phrase, one step or one task. We develop strength as we go, and we find, upon accomplishing what we intended, that we have learned much else along the way.

Ms. Scott holds a Bachelor of Arts in French and International Affairs and a Master of Arts in French Literature, both from the University of Georgia.
