Ms Marie Elven

Lecturer in French Language



I teach written French language to all undergraduates taking French at St John's. My special interest lies in teaching Prose (translation from English into French), an exercise which provides multiple opportunities to explore aspects of language. I'm a strong believer in the integrated study of language and literature, a belief which is central to my approach to language teaching. I am also interested in more theoretical aspects of translation and have taught part of the Advanced Translation paper for Paper XII.
