New in this part of the world, even though she has wonderful memories of her early travelling in Southern Asia, Amélie arrived at Alliance Française de Penang in 2017. Definitely in search of smaller structures where it´s possible to get in touch with locals and lovers of her home ports, Alliance Française de Penang appeared as a great opportunity to get a sense of a different flow. After a couple of years in Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East, there´s nothing more appealing than a multicultural Asian abode. Her teaching skills got developed alongside with her appetite for arts and drama. There is nothing that is impossible to learn as long as you´re ready for it!
After teaching in France and in Japan, Pauline joined Alliance Française de Penang's team in 2017. Penang is her second home and it´s here that she can fulfill her enthusiasm for Malaysian cultures.
