French Teachers

Marie-Laurence Lambrecht

Born in a multi-lingual home (French-speaking mother, Dutch-speaking father) language has always been a family theme. This also led me to pursue a master’s degree in Sinology. Upon returning from an exchange year in China I also obtained a master´s degree ‘Specific Language Teaching
Programme’ in addition to a postgraduate degree ‘Teaching Dutch as a Foreign Language’. I have since been teaching French, Dutch and Chinese
mainly at university, but also at high schools, evening schools and in companies. Since April 2016, I have been teaching French for Modern Languages and Lifelong Learning at the University of Southampton. In my classes I prioritise conversation and interaction.

Karen Caws

have been a teacher since 2000, but started teaching languages when I took a specialist language teaching course and moved to France in 2009. I stayed 4 years, learnt French and taught lots of English! I fell in love with the French language and the culture. Since moving back to Southampton, I have started teaching French and love helping people on their journey to speaking French. I see language learning as a lifelong journey that you can dip in and out of and learn through a variety of methods throughout life, although an organised class is a great place to start.

Elliott Somosierra-Tschudi

Born of joint Swiss and Spanish nationality into the ex-French protectorate of Morocco, I am a native french speaker who can offer first hand, in-depth cultural and linguistic knowledge of what makes up modern day France. After completing my Masters 1 in France, I have moved to Southampton to put my academic training into practise and fulfil my passion for capturing peoples interest in learning a language. For me, learning a language is a life changing experience and I above all want to show people the exciting opportunities it can lead to! I have experience with different styles of teaching, in both England and France, so I can tailor make the classes to the needs of the participants.
