As an expatriate living in the US for over five years and working for a multicultural organization, I came to value both my culture of origin and my ability to speak in a foreign language fluently so much more. I am lucky to speak several of the official languages at my work place and am constantly surrounded by bilingual individuals, which is fascinating! My understanding of foreign languages has facilitated my integration in my country of adoption and my workplace and has helped me better communicate with individuals of different backgrounds. I am excited, today, to be able to share my knowledge and my passion for foreign languages and for France with others and give the opportunity I was given in the past to others.
