Career

Claire started her career in France, as a qualified Modern Foreign Language teacher, and taught in schools in the region of Lyon.  Having taught English before teaching French enhanced her sensitivity of how the two languages cut out reality differently, and where similarities and differences can hinder or facilitate acquisition in the case the English learners.

She started teaching at UEA in 2011, first as an Associate Tutor, then as a permanent lecturer from 2012. The modules she teaches focus on French Language Acquisition, from subsidiary to advanced level.
