New French Assistant – Stefanie

A big welcome to our new French Assistant Stefanie to Ballyclare Secondary School.   Read a short interview with Stefanie below to find out more about her.

Hello everyone, my name is Stéfanie and I will be your French assistant for this year.


I have lived in many countries, particularly in Africa (in Mauritania, Kenya and South Africa). But before coming to Belfast, I was living in Lyon, the third biggest city in France! I was living in an apartment with two friends of mine.Lyon City

My mother lives in Besançon, where   she is a civil servant. Both my brother and my sister live in Paris. Sylvain, who is 34, works in IT, whereas Tania, who is 29, works in a humanitarian company. We are very close, and we love traveling together!



As for me, I am 21 and I would like to become an elementary school teacher, and work in schools abroad so that I can travel, because that’s my favorite thing to do during my spare time. That’s also why I am here this year. I will be able to visit Northern Ireland and Scotland which I have always wanted to visit!

I love going to the theater, the cinema, going out with friends, meeting new people… I am sociable and always looking for new things to do, new people to meet… I’m very curious! Last year, I was at the University of Lyon where I got my Bachelor’s degree in English.uniIf you ever need some help in French or if you have questions, do not hesitate to come and see me, it will be a pleasure for me to help you!

A bientôt!
