About me

I have been working at LSE since 2005 and I have been teaching French as a foreign language for over 20 years. I hold a Master in linguistics from Grenoble University (France) and a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London. I strongly believe learning a foreign language is a challenging and exciting adventure. This is at the core of my teaching. In class I mainly use the immersion technique (95% of communications are in French) although my way of working draws on a wide range of methods all aiming at getting students to communicate in French as quickly and effectively as possible. I am also very interested in considering the French class as a door opening onto the whole French-speaking world, not just France. In a nutshell: students should expect a good mix of hard work, good results  and  fun.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
