About the Instructor

  • The day after graduating from university with a BA in French, Valerie Sutter headed off to France for what she thought would be a year of polishing her language skills. Twenty years later, she returned home to the US, fluent not only in French but in Portuguese and intercultural relations. She earned her master’s degree with honors at the Faculté de Lettres de Lyon and shared her passion for language and culture by teaching for thirty years in public and private schools in France, Brazil, and the US. Believing that foreign language immersion is the best means of understanding another culture and most important, one’s own, she organizes language workshops in France every summer for teachers of French with her own company, The French Traveler. She owns an apartment in Paris where she spends several months of the year, when not otherwise occupied in Miami teaching French or learning ballroom dance.
