I sought out the French Cultural Center with the aim of reviving my French and discovered a vibrant community. I love to chat to our students and members, of all ages, whether to discuss classes they are taking, books they are reading or the latest French TV show they have been watching.


Liz grew up in England and spent many summers traveling in France with her family, which sparked a lifelong love of languages and travel. She has a degree in modern languages and international studies for which she also studied in France and Spain. Working in international sports marketing while living in Hong Kong and London meant extensive travel, particularly in Asia. A new chapter began after moving to New York and then settling in the Boston area. Liz enjoys traveling, experiencing different cultures and spending time with friends and family.
