Hey! My name is Marie, I´m a French native speaker, born in a tiny village named Ursy, in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, between Geneva and Bern. I am both a teacher and an opera singer. My love for literature and music makes me travel both geographically and emotionally. I studied pedagogy in Geneva and lyric theater in London, Moscow (Gitis National Academy), Bologna and Barcelona. When I´m not singing, I´m teaching and sharing my love for languages, especially French and Spanish. I believe in teaching in a creative way, where we can share interests, life experiences, different cultures and why not, even exchange recipes, music lyrics, films, and books. I believe that in this way, your interest for a language can be much more dynamic. I have taught students of all ages and nationalities: in public schools in Switzerland, in companies and schools, both ‘one to one’ and group classes in Spain. I am always happy to get to get to know people and having classes which are fun and enjoyable, and where I too, will learn something from you. Of course, I always adapt to the student´s needs and my approach will adapt to your goals. I look forward to having a good time together with you, “mais, en Français”!! Even though French is my native language, having a musical ear always made me yearn to learn different languages. Spanish has become my second language after having lived in Barcelona for the past 16 years, and Italian, German and Russian have come to my life through music.
Languages: French, Spanish, English, I understand Italian, Portuguese, German and a little bit of Russian
