Salut! My name is Carole. I am a native French teacher from Normandy. I studied for my degree in English, Spanish and IT in Le Havre before spending a year as a French language assistant in the South of England. I then decided to stay in the UK and did teacher training at the University of Southampton. I remained in the South of England for 8 years, teaching IT and languages. Then I carried on with my little tour of Europe by first spending 2 years in lovely Baden (Switzerland) where I taught for a language school. I spent the next 4 years north of Frankfurt where the French community is very strong. I am currently in the North West of England, where I get to experience absolutely stunning landscapes.
