Francesca Manganelli




Francesca holds a master’s degree in Modern Languages and Literature and a D.E.A. (Post Master’s Degree) in Art History, from the Sorbonne University of Paris, and has acquired more than 12 years of experience teaching French to a wide range of students from high school to business executives. As head teacher in the foreign-language department at the American School in Paris, Francesca designed and taught an innovative variety of French-language courses with an emphasis on helping students assimilate into French culture and business. More recently, Francesca has taught French language and civilization at Shanghai Normal University, where she also created a French-business class helping graduates to find positions in French companies. Having lived and taught in several different countries in both Europe and Asia, Francesca is highly sensitive to the challenges faced by non-native French learners, and adapts her methods and style to the needs of individual students, ensuring the maximum amount of progress in the minimum amount of time. Francesca’s love for teaching French is evident both in and out of the classroom, as she regularly organizes extracurricular activities, including trips to France, in order for people to apply what they have learned in real life.
