My name is Erika and I have been studying French since I was 4 years old. I studied French in my hometown where I got a degree in French (C1 level). When I was 16, I got a scholarship to study French in Normandie, France. Ten years later, I got a second scholarship to study in Lyon, France. Back in Argentina, I have been teaching at the Alliance Francaise since then. Currently, I am the Headteacher.
Also, I have been working at university for 16 years. As regards my interests, I am keen on photography, arts, cooking and languages.

· French · Online I really liked Erika's style and vocabulary that was easy to understand and follow even though I am a beginner and did not understand some portions. She has a great command of the English language which helps a beginner like me.

· French · Online Erika is patient and enthusiastic. She's also very understanding when it takes you three or four times to get the pronunciation correct. She is an excellent teacher. Highly recommend
