Meet our teachers




Leigh is originally from Adelaide and has lived in Albury for the past 5 years. He has travelled extensively throughout Australia and the world, visiting every continent except Antarctica. After studying French in both highschool and university he lived and studied international relations in Paris, Grenoble and Santiago. His love of languages stems from the desire to have meaningful conversations with people from around the world and to learn from their different cultures. He is currently a language and geography teacher at Albury High.



Travel for Beginners

Vivienne has been speaking French most of her life, having been fortunate to attend a bilingual school from the age of 4. Vivienne loves France, and the French, and has travelled quite extensively in France. She is eager to share her knowledge of the French language required for successful voyages en France with people keen to learn. Classes will be fun and practical.



Beginners Year 2/Intermediate/Online

Heather taught French at Albury HS for 24 years before retiring in 2014. During that time she organised 10 study tours to France for my students. She has lived and worked in France 3 times, including a year on teacher exchange in 1996. She believes that learning a language broadens our view of the world and loves seeing the joy that my students experience when they finally realise that they can express themselves in French, and that others understand what they are trying to say!




Josephine was born and raised in Strasbourg, and moved to Australia 5 years ago where she completed a Master of Teaching. She is now teaching secondary Mathematics by day, and French at the Alliance Francaise by night. She is passionnate about languages and the cultures associated with them, and is eager to share her knowledge and expertise with her students.




Born in France and educated in Belgium, Paule has been teaching French since 1986 in Melbourne and from 1997 in Albury. As one of the founding members of Alliance Française Albury-Wodonga Paule is passionate (or rather pedantic) about correct pronunciation.
