About the teacher
Claude Fournier grew up in Nancy, Lorraine (north-eastern region of France). After graduating college with an art degree, he taught drawing classes at the Nancy-Metz Academy. Then, he moved to New York where he stayed ten years teaching at the Lycée Français and at the Berlitz Foreign Language Center of Manhattan. During that time, Claude began to get very interested in teaching French as a Foreign Language (FLE). Therefore, he went back to school to obtain a Master’s degree in FLE. Then he moved to Taiwan and his career took off. There, he worked 5 years at the Alliance Française and 19 years at the University of Foreign Languages Wenzao in Kaohsiung. Now that Claude is living in the US he’s honored to offer his expertise to the Alliance Française d’Atlanta. Besides French, he is passionate about art and loves hiking and bike riding in the mountains.
