Jean-Claude Neveu

French Teacher

I completed a BA in French Literature from the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne and a MA Hons in Linguistics and Didactics of Languages from the University of Rennes 2 – Haute Bretagne. During my 33-year teaching career I have worked in international schools, universities, government and private institutions, and have experience with every age group and level. I have also participated in the publication of many educational books, such as “Bienvenue en Thaïlande”, which was used during the 1980s and 1990s in Thai government high schools with a French programme.

As an educator, I am dedicated to my work and try to share my passion for the subjects I teach. Thus, I make sure to provide a stimulating and friendly learning environment in my classrooms.

I decided to come to St Andrews International School Bangkok to broaden my experience in international schools. I also wanted to extend my AP experience to IGCSE and IB.

Besides teaching, I am an accredited translator for the French Embassy. I enjoy doing translations and I am pretty much of a perfectionist. Apart from official documents, I have translated Thai literature and other works, and took part, from 2001 to 2005, in a project subsidised by the French government to translate French literary works into Thai (from Victor Hugo, George Sand, Bernard Clavel). I plan to be a full-time translator when I retire from education.

I also enjoy visiting minority villages in the North of Thailand and in surrounding countries. A research I wrote on the Lahu Shehleh was published by the Paris-Sorbonne University Press in 1993.

During my spare time, I read (mostly literature, French poetry and history books).To stay fit, I practise kickboxing.

St. Andrews brings the different communities of students closer, and this makes it a truly international school.
