Adrien Passelande, A French Teaching Artist

Yes, it’s possible to explore the world by sitting in a four walled room… only if we believe those walls can’t bind our souls. When everyone was busy in gossiping, I saw one tall shadow in front of the door getting closer, & then he entered with a charming shout “Bonsoooir’ like everyday, suddenly everyone got charged & eagerly watching to his face… as the sunflowers move their faces with the new sunrise…that charming shout also kills my tiredness of 9 hours working time that I have before every class…

Adrien Passelande

Our French teacher or a teaching artist…

a tall man in t-shirt, jeans and brown snickers… curly hair, little beard and the most striking white glass in eyes… acts, dances, sings and smiles…

Takes us far away of this tiring world where only imagination stays… & we travel…sometimes in a French shopping mall, or a movie premier, or in a French disco or sometimes to find out the thief in a police station. Lolz… exploring through the French Creators and creations… in French

Even we are not allowed to speak in English or native Bengal… though we are in the very 1st course…

Even though we communicate… in French… because we got the belief that how badly we fall he’s always there to pull us and give the power to walk…

That day, He wrote so many numbers in the board and came to me with two erasers. I was confused when he was asking me to choose one, Blue or Green. I took Green. Lolz… it was a game. He divided us into two groups, Blue and Green. He’s goona tell the numbers in French and we have to erase that. The person who can erase 1st gonna get 1 point for his/her group. It was a really interesting game and main thing is we never feel that we are studying something. He made a colorful world here with us… & I won’t say it’s a little world… cause it’s a new world everyday… with new colors… new ways to walk… new taste… with old friends…

Before joining Alliance, some people told me “French is so tough to learn”.

But you know what I got from Adrien’s teaching style?

French is more ‘acquiring’ than learning. Cause it’s more than a language. It’s an emotion or a feeling that really goes or comes from the deepest part of the heart. May be this line is sounding unusual or like a dreamer. But, Yes!! Whatever you think, here dream and life belongs together… French made that… He made that… & we made that…

Got 1 more lesson in life, a teacher is not that person who teaches us the daily lessons; a teacher is someone who puts a mirror in front of us and guides to find our own that was ever sleeping inside us.

Yes!! An inspiration…

Acts, dances, sings and smiles… 🙂

    I am very impressed by your blog.
    You are very lucky to have a teacher like him because in deed he’s a wonderfull and colourfull person. Try to learn the maximum you can with him and you can be sure he will do the maximumum for you because he is just honest, patient and sensitive.
    I am just one of his french friends (Ben from Blain) just say him hello from me.
    Could you provide me his email adress please

    Boooooooooonnnnsoirrrrr….! ! ! ! !
    Merci à vous de nous avoir donné des nouvelles d’Adrien.
    Même s’il est un bon professeur, il n’en reste pas moins un incorigible rêveur qui quitte ses amis sans donner de nouvelles. ^^
    C’est un beau message de comunion et d’espoir que délivre ce blog, Bravo!

      Dans l’idée d’apprendre le français, la correction des fautes contenues de mon message peut-être un petit exercice 😦 ^^

    Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossip and web stuff and this is actually frustrating. A good site with interesting content, that is what I need. Thanks for making this website, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Can’t find it.
