Linda Fenouil
Private Lessons; Conversations du lundi, B1, and Alter Ego B2 Classes

Hello! My name is Linda Fenouil. I was born in Nice in the south of France where I grew up and spent most of my adult life.  In Nice, I worked in a research laboratory (CNRS) for 12 years.

I am married and I have three grown children. My family and I came to Louisville in 1993 when my husband took a position as a software engineer.

I started working with the Alliance Française in 2002. It is a beautiful adventure that lasts.

Joseph Mackenzie-Rollinson
Private Lessons; Selon Nous Class

My name is Joseph Mackenzie-Rollinson and I am delighted to be counted among the wonderful teachers that make up part of the team here at the Alliance Française de Louisville. Being of British origin and spending much of my life living between England and France, I learned from a young age to appreciate enormously the great cultural differences between these two countries.

In France I consider myself an adoptive Burgundian as it was in the town of Semur-en-Auxois (68 miles west of the city of Dijon) where I was able to learn, experience and live all that I know regarding French language, culture and (most of all !) gastronomy thanks to my godparents who owned a Hotel-Restaurant located in the walled section of the town. Later in life I worked at the local Anna Judic High School in Semur as an English teacher, upon where I met my future (American) wife, Julia. It was love at first sight and after graduating from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in modern languages (French and Spanish) I then decided to move to Louisville and we were married in April 2009.

I have been working at Alliance Française de Louisville for 3 years where I teach the advanced conversation class ‘Selon Nous’ as well as some private classes. I also work at Humana in downtown Louisville where I often have the chance to use my Spanish language skills in my day to day work. When not working I love to train in the weight room at the gym as well as preparing myself for the many running races which take place here in Louisville during the year. I am passionate about French literature and for all world cuisine and I am also a lover of playing the piano, even if I not the most talented in playing it!!! I can’t wait to get to know you in one of the Alliance Française classes where you will soon find out the fact that ‘practice makes perfect’. A bientôt I hope!!!
