Dr Lefievre Gives MFL Inspiration

26 November 2021

This week we had the pleasure of welcoming Dr Linda Lefievre to EHS. 

Originally from Montreal, Dr Lefievre is a Senior Lecturer in Endocrinology at the University of Birmingham where her research expertise is in reproduction. She has recently taken on the role of Deputy Director of Education for Digital and Distance Learning, with the focus of supporting colleagues with innovative and blended approaches for teaching and learning. 

As well as having such an impressive background in the field of science, one of Dr Lefievre‚Äôs best kept secrets is her ability to speak three languages fluently - French, Spanish and English -, which was the purpose of her visit to EHS. 

During her assembly, students were able to find out about her personal background, and how Dr Lefievre has utilised her expertise in three different languages to advance her career and collaborate with scientists from across the world. As an admissions tutor at the University of Birmingham, Dr Lefievre also highlighted the advantages of studying a language not only at GCSE level, but at A Level and beyond, as it opens the doors to many prestigious degrees and universities.

We are very grateful to Dr Lefievre for taking time from her busy schedule to visit us and deliver such an inspiring and informative assembly. We are sure the girls now feel inspired to pursue their study of languages further.
