I taught French to the international business undergraduates at the Royal Agricultural University from 2014-2016. (Spanish German and Mandarin. were also offered ) I was the only English mother tongue speaking tutor on the team, all the other tutors were native speakers. We made full use of the internet together with `French as a foreign language` learning materials. A minimum of 50% of my lessons were delivered in the target language. My students examination grades (particularly in the listening papers) averaged just over 70% in fact one student got 92%
