Sylvie Lainé is a native French language trainer, writer and translator. She is a graduate of the University of Caen (France) in Applied Language Studies and Linguistics and a graduate of the University Erlangen-Nurnberg (Germany) in Romance Philology. She has over 15 years experience of providing language training to adults allow her to understand their difficulties and challenges. In February 2013, she created the “Easy French Reader Series for Beginners”.
She wants to create carefully written and exciting stories to help her students escape grammar and exercise books. She wants her students to enjoy reading and learn the language without the feeling of overwhelm and frustration that they get from many French books. As she found nothing especially written for beginners on the Internet, she came up with the idea of writing stories herself.
She was born in Normandy and lives now in the south of France. The review of her book Le Pendentif can be found here.
