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

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.

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