I went to work in London as soon as I finished school, where I had studied English for eight years. I stayed there for five years, working as a chef, and acquired a good level of everyday English as well as technical culinary vocabulary.
I then lived in the Republic of Ireland for almost ten years, during which I studied modules of modern history and literature through the Distance Education Centre of Dublin University ( This study of academic historical and literary works enabled me to improve my understanding and appreciation of the English language. Then, in order to get an official recognition of these abilities before returning to France, I passed the Certificate of Proficiency in English (University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations), recognised as fulfilling English language entry requirements by many higher institutions and corporate bodies across the world.
I am at the moment translating a history of the Comanche people by American historian T. R. Fehrenbach, and also a biography of William Johnson, an Irishman who lived among the Iroquois confederation in the eighteenth century, by the Irish writer and journalist Fintan O'Toole.
