My name is Laura and I am from the north-west of France. I am passionate about travelling and learning foreign languages which help me to discover different cultures and traditions, and to understand different people’s ways. I have travelled all around over Europe and Russia. I pursued a degree in translation but after graduating from university, I decided to change my specialization and I started to teach my beautiful native language. I taught French in Lyon and Toulouse in France, and spent one year in Poland teaching French.
Then, I finally came back to France and I successfully pursued my Master’s degree in “French as a foreign language”. Since then, I have worked as a French teacher in Paris and in Saint Petersburg, at the Saint Petersburg State University. I have also worked at the French Institute (Institut Français) where I’ve promoted the French language through many events (festivals, competitions, workshops, Francophonie, etc.). In addition, I’m an accredited examiner for the international French DELF and DALF exams.
