Mahima Nanda

French Instructor (A2)

I believe I am a foreign language aspirant. In the past few years i have accumulated experience in teaching english when I first witnessed myself teaching underprivileged under the bridge in south delhi. The journey then continued to pursue skills in counselling, social work and french language. I have experience in learning and teaching french since 2012. Consequently I have worked with Embassy of Republic of Congo in New Delhi as French Interpretor in 2019 for a year. Apart from this, the same year, I got the opportunity to share french knowledge with the students of an ngo named SIOTA (Sky is Open to All) based in New Delhi. I am passionate about the languages and the whole spectrum of a community associated with it, thus my teaching involves an exposure to culture, literature, philosophy, arts and cinema related to the language. For the year 2020-2021, I am based in France to teach english to french students under “France Education Nationale”. My future prospects involve me dreaming and working on the idea of operating alternative schools in India.


French is an international language spoken by more than 300 million people on five different continents. French is the official language of many international organizations such as the United Nations, NATO, the European Union, UNESCO, and many more. French is the main language of international communication. It is the second most widely studied language after English and the 6th most widely spoken language. French is also the second most widely taught language after English. It is a good base for learning other languages, especially languages ​​such as Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian, English since most of the English vocabulary is derived from French. 

 It is a language of cooking, fashion,visual arts, dance and architecture. Learning french as a language and being able  to  enjoy the original French texts, as well as films and songs is privileged.  UMRAN has given out certificates to 3 batches so far. students at UMRAN have enjoyed taking free online classes from native experts and had the opportunity to talk to each other as well other French speakers  around them. UMRAN urges to not let go of this opportunity and learn french through UMRAN and its expert teachers via zoom classes taken 2 times per week.
