My name is Shamim Sabetraftar and I am the French teacher at Weetangera School. I studied French throughout my schooling and took French lessons at the Alliance Francaise in O’Connor . I am originally from Iran and am also fluent in Persian (Farsi). My goal for French this year is to foster a passion for learning languages and immerse the students in the French culture through exciting lessons.

Please feel free to contact me through email for any questions.
