Associate Lecturer (E&S)

I am an Associate Lecturer in the Foreign Language Centre.

I hold undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the Universities of Paris Panthéon-Assas (Paris 2) and Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris 1) in law and political science as well as a masters qualification in teaching French as a Foreign Language from the University of Tours.

I arrived in England many years ago and started my teaching career at the University of Liverpool while completing my doctorate. I then worked for 14 years at the University of Bath where I taught a large variety of courses in French language, French politics and French business, mainly to students enrolled on an international management and modern languages degree programme.

I also taught for 2 years in the Law Faculty of the University of Exeter, on the Double Maitrise de droit programme.

I have been working at the FLC at the University of Exeter since 2011, teaching every level of French language (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Courses) and from 2016-17, I  have also been teaching in the Department of Modern Languages some advanced oral and written classes.

I am currently teaching and convening 2 modules in the Foreign Languages centre:

French Beginners Fast track:

This module is suitable for students who have little or no prior knowledge but need or wish to progress quickly as by the end of the year, you will be halfway through intermediate level.

French for Business:

This module is an advanced module designed for students who have completed 2 years of study after their A'level in French (or equivalent) and have possibly spent a year abroad in France. In this module, we concentrate on learning about French business terminology and the French business and economic environment using a wealth of authentic material.

All these modules have pages on ELE which you can consult and you can also come and see me to discuss them during my office hours in Term 2, or via email.

I also teach on the Advanced French Language skills module for final year students of French in the Department of Modern Languages.

Finally I am going to teach a French legal language course in term 2 of 2017-18 for the Evening language programme subject to sufficient demand. This 'French for Lawyers' course (a certificated course for a fee but with no assessment) which will be held at lunchtime on Wednesdays is designed for people with a A' level qualification in French or equivalent who would like to work on the core language skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking through the study of authentic materials related to legal matters.
