Udemy Language Instructor

I am an excited Udemy instructor, looking to share with those wanting to learn. I am a blossoming multipotentialite and polyglot. I have had what amounts to almost a decade of formal training in French, up through and including the top tiers of University study and also including a year abroad in beautiful Grenoble, France.
