I was a teacher in France for 4 years, before moving to the UK. As an Assistant Lecturer in French, my responsibilities include teaching undergraduate modules, including Add+Vantage, French for business and conversation classes, as well as marking and moderating assessments.

I am involved in the Routes into Languages programme that includes presentations in schools about career prospects with languages. I have also set up a French film club, which screens a French film with English subtitles once every month.

Having completed the relevant qualifications, I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
