Mr F taught me during the 1980s.
I have thought about my learning experience many times since having my own children. Both of them loathe languages. I loved them, but with hindsight I can see what fantastic teachers I had. I think if my children had had Mr Fairbanks, they would not loathe French. I took my teaching for granted at the time, but would dearly love to be able to tell him how much I value what he taught me. Brilliant guy, so enthuastic and great communicator.
He tough me during the 90 ' s. Excellent Teacher and a nice guy.
