I have been teaching French as a foreign language since 1998 in various institutions in France and other countries, as well as being a trainer and training manager. I have a postgraduate diploma (DESS) in French language and educational cooperation, as well as a Master 2 in language didactics, and completed a doctoral thesis in educational science on evaluation as a support for learning (University of Geneva). I am currently deputy director of the ILCF and a teacher-researcher in FLE and educational science (Catholic University of Lyon), an auditor for the Label Qualité FLE (France Education International) and an accredited trainer for DELF-DALF examiner training. I am a member of the ERED laboratory (University of Geneva) and of the language sector of the GFEN (Groupe Français d'Education Nouvelle).
