French Expert

Cécile is the veteran of the team, coming out of semi-retirement to help with the increasing volume of questions on Kwiziq French's Q&A forum.

She was born in Versailles and lived there for 18 years before settling into married life in Great Britain.

After raising two children and studying for 4 years at Warwick University, she began her own business, initially teaching French to local businesses from SMEs to multinationals. It grew to delivering more than 20 languages and twice won the Regional Language Trainer Award (1995, 2003), the UK’s National Languages for Export Awards. Cécile continued to teach French personally as well as managing a large team of multilingual tutors.

Although semi-retired, she still enjoys teaching French on a private basis, and loves to help students with their questions on Kwiziq French’s Q&A forum.
