About :

I am a French-speaking Belgian National who has been living in England since 1998 and currently teaching French and German at the University of Sussex.

I graduated from a translation school in Belgium and got BA degree in translation (German/Dutch into French) in 1987.

In 2002 I went on a training course to become a Community Interpreter with the Sussex Interpreting Services, based in Brighton an in June 2006, I obtained the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting and became a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.

I became a language teacher in 2001 and after building up a sound experience in teaching French to adult and sixth form learners and gaining the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Brighton in 2009, I joined the language department at the University of Brighton in February 2011 and in 2017 I went on to teach at the University of Sussex. I am currently completing a CELTA qualification to teach English. I can offer generic or bespoke lessons in English or in French.

About the Local Area :

Our house is located in Hove, Hangleton. Although Hove is part of buzzing Brighton & Hove City, we live in a quiet area with a wide green space at the front (St Helen’s Green) and Benfield Valley Park at the back. A 45 min uphill walk on the Downs will take you directly from the house to the Devil’s Dyke, the local highest point from where you have a breathtaking panorama view on Brighton and surroundings. You might even see the outskirts of London…

There is a very good bus route nearby going to the town centre and the nearest station with a direct link to London is 15 min walking distance. The beach is a short bus ride or 25 min walk away. A superstore is 7 min walk away

There are plenty leisure opportunities in and around Brighton and visitors are welcome to share the daily life of a bi-cultural family including various activities (badminton, country walks, friendly community gatherings, shopping).

Excursions avaliable :

There are numerous opportunities for excursions in and around Brighton. There are plenty of things to do whether you are the urban or the countryside type.
