''Incidentally, if it's not a rude question , what were you doing up and about at 4.50- Dictionary Search???''
Suej, a dictionary search would be a very good reason!
Sadly, I seem to begun returning to being noctural! So it was catching up on emails, reading my Kindle, doing Soduko and looking at the forum!
As for having a French French teacher rether than an English French teacher, I wouldn't be too keen on the latter. I'm thoroughly enjoying the time spent with our current teacher - a French woman, who taught at schools in England for a few years, and who taught English and French in France before retiring. The group is made up of mostly Dutch people, with a pair from Denmark and us, an English couple.
I admit to being rather bored when there's stuff on verbs etc, as I feel I've done so much of it over so many years, but many in the group didn't learn French at school, so haven't any idea about where pronouns etc should go. It's great to learn more about the government, the French Foreign Legion (her son's an officer), various sayings, cultural matters etc.
Maybe an excellent well-qualified and experienced English teacher could also be good, but I'd need one who had a huge background in French life, as your wife would have, Eric, and also an excellent French accent.
Sweet, I'm with our local AVF group for French; there's a beginners' group and an advanced group; it's proving very useful and interesting. Maybe there's one near you. Somehow I can't imagine AVF having an English person teaching French; I would guess they'd feel somewhat affronted!
