Lucile Lunde was born in France and grew up bilingual French and German. After obtaining her Bachelor's degree in Foreign Languages (English, German, and Italian) and Master's degree in International Tourism in France, Lucile lived in Germany for the next 15 years. She worked in international corporations coordinating sales and marketing activities across Europe.

In 2004, Lucile emigrated to British Columbia, Canada where she worked for herself as a translator for 5 years. She met her American husband on Vancouver Island and her son was born a year later. Lucile and her family moved to Fort Collins in 2009 to be closer to her husband’s family.

Since 2012, Lucile has been teaching French and German in group classes to young children using Music Lingua, a method that uses songs, movement, games, and visuals to make it fun for young children to learn a foreign language. In addition, Lucile gained experience teaching French children 3 to 9 years old at a local school in Fort Collins. In Summer 2013, Lucile extended her language services to offer private and semi-private lessons to adults, teenagers, and school-age children.

Lucile is currently a GTA in the French Department and is completing her Master's degree in French and German. She hopes to instill her love of languages to other students and eventually her goal is to be teaching both languages at the college level.
