Owner & Prof. de français, Freestyle Language Center
Talk to me about:
An incurable Francophile, Elizabeth is uncommonly passionate about language learning - especially the ability of languages to connect people.
With a Diplôme Supérieur in French business, she worked in Marketing for L’Oreal, Paris before doing a 180 degree career switch to earn an MA in 18c. Fr. Lit. from UT Austin. She subsequently served for nearly 5 yrs as a French Lecturer at Texas State Univ.
In 2012 Elizabeth formed Freestyle Language Center to create a language learning community with a fun stress-free model & effective methodology. What they're saying: https://freestylelanguagecenter.com/press-testimonials/
Regarding the growth of a new business from 4 students to over 100 in less than 18 months, she recently participated in an exciting crowdfunding campaign via Local Lift to generate capital for a necessary curriculum building project.
As for sharing ideas and collaborating with others in Education during SXSWedu 2015, c'est magnifique!
