Teacher profiles

Bonjour!

My name is Audrey, I come from New Caledonia, a french island in the Pacific Ocean, close to Australia.  This shows how widespread the french language and culture are in the world.

I’ve been living in Ireland for 3 years now. I was a secondary school teacher in New Caledonia but  teaching at the french Alliance is a completely different experience, as you have more time to focus on the learner’s progression.

À bientôt!

Audrey

Bonjour, Je m’appelle Valérie.

I am a Primary School Teacher with administrative skills. I am therefore the Administrator in Alliance Française de Limerick and I also give classes to the FLAM 1 and 2 groups on Saturday. I was born beside Lyon and studied languages at college. My first trip to Ireland was in 2004. Since then, I am in love with your country! After finishing my Bachelor of Arts in Applied Languages in France, I went back to Limerick for three years and worked as a Customer Care Agent and as an Inside Sales Representative. Then I decided to go to Reunion Island to obtain a Master in Education, Teaching and Training. After my appointment as a teacher, I missed Ireland so much that I went back there and worked as a Claims Associate. My desire to teach took over and I stayed 4 years on the beautiful tropical island, before coming back to you. I hope you will enjoy your experience in Alliance Française de Limerick.

Au plaisir de vous retrouver!

Valérie
