  • Description


    My name is Leïla.
    I am 38.
    I work as a civil servant in the social area.

    My husband’s name is Mathieu.
    He is 38 too.
    He works as a salesman for industry, selling forklifts.

    We met each other when we were 19.
    Then, we lived in the South East of France around Marseille and Aix-en-Provence.
    We got the habit to spend our holidays in the South West of France.
    As we liked it, we decided to move there in 2005.

    In 2008, we welcomed our daughter, Maïa, and, in 2012, our son, Tom.
    It is particularly important to me to introduce our kids to what is one of my pleasures: foreign langages.

    My mother was a Russian teacher.
    We hosted her friends home every summer and I heard them speak Russian.
    I liked the sounds, smells, taste of food, all different from what I was used to.
    We took them to nice places around our house: Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, les Calanques, les Baux de Provence.
    It became also a way of enjoying our own country by sharing it.
    My mother also set school trips to Saint-Petersburg for her pupils.

    When I became a teen, I went to England, Ireland and the USA to improve my English.

    These last years were very full with happy and sad times.
    We moved. We worked. We took care of Maïa and Tom.

    Now, the road is free for us to travel a little and reconnect with foreign langages.
