New Lecturer brings 10-years of Teaching Experience from Paris to TVU School of Foreign Languages


TVU – 23 NOV 2015. Dorothée Déjardin, a French lecturer who has over 10 years’ experience teaching French in France and the UK, today joins the TVU School of Foreign Languages to teach French language and literature, beginning January 2016.


Dorothée comes to TVU after holding several teaching and administrative positions at the training association Halte et Elles – CEFIP, and Ecole Perl (one of the top 10 French Schools in Paris). Her teaching experience spans all ages from young corporate executives to adults of different nationalities and professional background.


‘We are grateful that Dorothée has chosen to join the University of Tra Vinh and to contribute to the work of TVU’s School of Foreign Languages,’ said TVU Vice Rector Tran Van Trong.


Dorothée said she is ‘truly honored to get the chance to work for TVU and with such a valuable team.’

‘When I first arrived on the campus, last Saturday, I had the feeling I was entering into a kind of ‘tropical paradise’, with that luxurious vegetation, that bright yellow on the walls, similar to the sun, and that blue sky,’ Dorothée added of her first impression of the main campus.


Dorothée received her bachelor’s degree in literature from Université Stendhal-Grenoble 3,

and a master’s in French from the University of Nanterre – Paris X. Since 2004, she taught French in Grammar School for Boys and Comprehension School in the United Kingdom.


“We are proud that we have gone to great lengths to secure such an experienced teacher from Paris,” said Dr Ho-Dac Tuc, the School’s Deputy Dean. “The School continues to invite teachers from abroad so that our students have an opportunity to interact with, and learn from, different cultures on campus.”


The Department of French was created within the School of Foreign Languages in May 2015. The School now adds French and Mandarin as second foreign languages to English majors, and offers the English language as minor to approximately 9,000 students within the University and from around the Mekong Delta.
