I have been teaching French as a Foreign Language at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne since July 2003. I’m a strong advocate of student-centered learning. I aim to give learners at EHL a taste for French and to prepare them to work with Francophone colleagues and guests. I was trained to be a language teacher in the French state school system. Before coming to EHL I taught French and Spanish in secondary schools and language schools in France, Spain and Switzerland.

Areas of interest:

- Business French

- French for the hospitality industry

- Flipped classroom

- Task based learning

- Speaking skills
