Danièle Bourdais

These are the insights into her life that Danièle has shared with us.

  • I was born on the beautiful south coast of Brittany, France. I love going back there, in the “Armor” (literally “by the sea” in Breton) for the sounds of the sea and the smell of seaweed – and the Argoët (meaning “inland”, “the forest”), a land of mysterious stones and mossy woods, myths and Arthurian legends. And of course, I love eating les galettes, the Breton pancakes with une bolée, a cup of cider!
  • I have loved languages from a very young age and had conversations with a 90 year-old granny in (some sort) of English at the age of 2 (my mother taught English in a secondary school and we often went to England on holiday). I learnt German and Russian at school, and started learning Hindi and Urdu when I met my Indian husband. Our two children grew up in a soup of cultures and a cocktail of languages!
  • I read English at Paris University after which I came to London as a language assistant for what was meant be a year. That was over 42 years ago and the rest is history! I completed my Licence-ès-Lettres and an MA in Literary Translation in the UK.  I have since made London my home and love its dynamism, multicultural landscape and vibrant cultural life.
  • During the Covid lockdowns, I did not bake or make sourdough bread! Instead, I wrote a series of online lessons for French for Secondary Schools, commissioned by the BBC. I also got snowned-under with demand for online teaching. Being able to support learners at that very difficult time tasted sweeter than cakes to me!
  • I was recently interviewed on Teacher Talk Radio about what I am perhaps better known for: my passion for providing learners with a culturally rich, diverse and inclusive experience of French and the French-speaking world, and my interest in decolonising the teaching of French. After all, our children deserve nothing less than a wonderful eye-opening, insightful journey around the Francosphère !
