Dr Helene Street
Associate Lecturer (E&S)
I am an Associate Lecturer in the Foreign Language Centre.
I hold undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the Universities of Paris Panthéon-Assas (Paris 2) and Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris 1) in law and political science as well as a masters qualification in teaching French as a Foreign Language from the University of Tours.
I arrived in England many years ago and started my teaching career at the University of Liverpool while completing my doctorate which was funded by a scholarship from the French State Research Council (CNRS). I then worked for 14 years at the University of Bath where I taught a large variety of courses in French politics, French business and French language, mainly to students enrolled on the International Management and Modern Languages degree programme.
I also taught for 2 years in the Law Faculty of the University of Exeter, on the Double Maitrise de droit programme. (French constitutional law and French Administrative law lectures and seminars)
I have been working at the FLC at the University of Exeter since 2011, teaching every level of French language (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Courses) and between 2016-20, I also taught final year oral and written classes in the Modern Languages department.
I created and delivered with a colleague a French language course at B1 level for the Ministry of Defence.
I have done translation work (English to French) on various University academic projects.

I am currently teaching and convening 1 modules in the Language centre:
French Intermediate 1:
This module is suitable for students who took French Beginners last year or did a GCSE or equivalent at school. This module will bring students from an A1 (beginners) to an A2 (elementary) level of competency according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. We go over all the basics again to consolidate and reactivate knowledge to make students "basic users" of French.
I have also taught in the past: French Beginners Fast track, French Intermediate 2, French Advanced 1, French Advanced 2 and Advanced French for Business.
