Julie Ricci

Bonjour! My name is Julie and I am from Nice, Côte d'azur. I have been teaching French in the UK since 2005 so it has been... a while. I started in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I graduated with an MCs in Language Teaching form the University of Edinburgh, and taught at Edinburgh Napier University and at the University of Edinburgh Life Long learning school. I then came to London where I started teaching at Citylit in 2011. I was also a French teacher at Queen Mary University of London for 7 seven years. I enjoy teaching languages and am very passionate to share and transmit my passion for my language. I make a point to create a relaxed atmosphere in my class, but I am very organised. So fear not! With me you will learn and have fun at the same time! I hope to see you soon in class. A bientôt!
