I have been teaching for 40 years – starting in Japan, then in the UK and Brazil; and I have been teaching for Cactus in London for 2 years.
I have been living in the UK for 37 years – with a 7-year gap when I lived in Brazil.
My Masters Degree is in Japanese Language, Civilisation and Linguistics.
I have translated books and articles, but also worked in schools as a career adviser.
I was born and grew up in Paris. I was very fortunate to live in the best districts, so I could enjoy what Paris had to oﬀer in terms of culture, architecture, food and entertainment. Paris is not as big as London, so I used to walk to museums, cinemas, restaurants and cafés.
I have been to over 20 countries and lived in 6 countries. I learned 6 languages, but now I speak only 3 languages regularly.
France has a very lively culinary culture which means that most people learn to cook at home, and that children are introduced to a variety of foods very early . When I went to school, all meals had a starter (usually raw mixed salads), a main dish (usually a protein and a great variety of vegetables – no chips), and a dessert (usually a cake, or fruits). My children’s generation had an even better choice of food – with schools getting to compose menus by chefs.
I am looking forward to meeting you in my class!
Au revoir et à bientôt!
