About me

I graduated with a Master's degree in translation from France and I went on to study further at UCL Institute of Education (IOE), University of London. I have twenty years of teaching experience in both the private and higher/continuous education sectors.

I have been teaching at the LSE Language Centre since 2001. I am interested in using a wide range of methods aimed at helping language learners develop language learning skills as well as confidence in speaking in a multicultural environment.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
