Mark Foster

Mark earned a B.A. in English and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies from the University of Connecticut. While living and teaching in France, he completed an M.A. in French Language and Civilization from New York University’s NYU-in-Paris program. His many years of teaching have convinced him that we can all take some valuable lessons from mothers and try to make learning a second language more like learning the first.
While trying to make language class more fun and fruitful, Dr. Foster has organized 30 exchange trips between schools in America and schools in France, Italy, Germany and Spain. He has also been a frequent conference presenter, offering workshops on language-teaching pedagogy, technology in the language classroom, and TPR techniques. He is currently developing a francophone radio program for students with one of his former students, Ms. Hélène Papper (United Nations, Chief of Radio – Mali). At present, Mark teaches French at King’s Academy in Jordan.
