About Me

Co-Founder at French Jobs For Me, French Teacher at Alliance Française de Bangalore, Blogger & Social Media Enthusiast.

A student of English Literature who wanted to do a Ph.D on the representation of women in Mills & Boons romance novels, I fell in love with the idea of cultural exchanges through languages when I went to Magdeburg, Germany for an exchange programme with Otto-von-Guericke University during my second year of M.A. While in Europe, I also visited Denmark, Sweden and finally France, which pushed me to continue studying French at the Alliance Française de Bombay.

I finished my Masters and moved to Pune where I started freelancing as a content writer. I also finished learning French and started teaching at the Alliance Française de Pune in 2005, continuing to freelance as a writer & translator. Realising that my true vocation is teaching, I traveled back to France to pursue a Diploma to teach FLE and eventually also acquired a Masters degree in the same field.

Based in Bangalore since 2011, I now teach at the Alliance Française de Bangalore, and freelance as a content writer, social media consultant and translator (English-French). I’ve recently started my own project, French Jobs For Me.

I have an amazing husband and a beautiful dog, Arya. I love reading, teaching French, writing, talking and cooking. I also love wine (blanc et rosé), single malt whisky, cider, cheese, mangoes and strawberries.

  1. Good luck with your blog Geets! i’ve attempted twice myself….and the only thing that has stopped me from continuing is my over-dominating Role (motherhood)….as a writer, i have only me and myself to prod, none else. So looking at you, am inspired maybe i could re-hitch my writer Wagon to my Lazy Chillies site yet again! Lovely review, and i shall read more and more. Vas-y, continue! Bon courage chérie, je ne connais pas cet aspect de ta personnalité…quel plaisir!
