Functions: teacher, teachers' trainer

About the school

Several schools (pupils from the age of 11 to 20) are present on our campus (for more than 2000 pupils). It is a private school acknowledged by the state and follows the state's syllabus, proposes the same final exams and many additional activities and formations. Languages taught are: French, English, German, Italien, Spanish and Japanese.

Language skills

German: C2 (mother tongue) and studies of German literature and culture in Salzburg (Autriche), degree: Magister; English: C2, studies of English literature and language in Salzburg; degree: Magister; French: C2, test level C2 and I have been living in France for 10 years; Italien: A2, evening classes


I am convinced that education and educational systems shouldn't only concentrate on one state. We can learn a lot by observing and exchanging with teachers and trainers from other countries. Learning (a language) is not a national but a human activity.

Strength and experience

As a teacher I have already taught pupils from the age of 5 to university students. Furthermore, I have taught German and English for 13 years in Austria before going to France, where I have been teaching for 9 years German and English to all kinds of learners, like collège, lycée, university or primary school. I also have experience in European projects and work for the teachers' training for young teachers.

Project related to EOL

I would like to help the evolution of our learning environment at school concerning foreign languages, especially languages which seem to have lost the interest of some pupils as they seem to be more difficult to learn than others. I consider a connection to other European school and to the CELV as a great help and bonus.

Needs and wishes

I have learnt about the existence of the CELV only recently and I would like to know about the possibilities and programmes which exist for teachers and schools. Furthermore, I would like to be in contact with other school involved in projects in order to see and unerstand what is possible. Finally, I would like support for the realisation of a concrete project.
