Jenny Birk


I am course tutor for IWLP Stage 1 French.

Base Programme:

After spending three years living in Paris, where I completed my undergraduate degree in French, I undertook a Masters degree at the University of Manchester, where I studied eighteenth-century French theatre. I hold a PGCE and have spent several years working as a Modern Languages teacher (teaching both French and Spanish), although my earliest experiences in teaching date back to the time I spent working as an English teacher in Argentina.

Alongside my work in the IWLP I am currently studying for a PhD in French Literature at the University of Birmingham. My PhD is focussed on adaptations of Balzac.

A few personal comments:
I enjoy long walks and listening to music.
