Alice arrived in Penang for Christmas of 2018. As the rest of the team, she enjoys travelling and had the opportunity to teach in Europe, North and South America and Asia before coming to Penang. In Asia, she worked for 2 years and a half in Beijing where she started learning Mandarin. She hopes she can practice it here and improve on it. She adores South America and all the culture that floats around. She also enjoys dancing to the rhythm of Spanish latino songs. She speaks Spanish fluently.

Marion arrived at the Alliance francaise de Penang in July 2019. Before that, she has taught French in Norway, Macau and Nepal. As far as she can remember, she always wanted to be a teacher and her passion for travelling gives her the chance to do the job that she likes while discovering the world and its different cultures. Marion also likes music (she played the violin for more than 10 years and she just started to play the guitar) and nature. She is really happy to be in Penang and she can't wait to discover Malaysia, meeting its people, walking in its landscapes and tasting its food.
