France



Born in the United States, I taught in France for over 40 years (plus many summers in Britain and the U.S.). I taught English primarily to young adults at University level, but I have also taught French secondary school pupils, business people, teachers, prison inmates, and drug addicts. My students have come from 93 countries around the world.
