By the end of this class, feel perfectly confident to enjoy your trip 100%!

About the teacher:
Chloé Guillot Elouard is a French novelist, a teacher and the proud director of the Alliance Française of Rochester. In France, she studied Arts, Literature, and Linguistics, and loved participating in live entertainment festivals, including Hop Hop Hop and Vice & Versa. She strongly believes language and culture go together. That’s why, through the years, she built a Theater Company, Bardes à papa, a play on words that combines cotton candy with troubador acting. Her favorite self-authored play was a fairy tale parody of Oedipus that included a barbecue and a criminally-inclined green mouse. She has also written and published novels, in addition to working as an assistant producer and a journalist. Above all, when exploring a new topic, Chloé Guillot Elouard asks herself: "What will I find here that I wasn’t expecting?"
