Visit of Mrs. Emilie TESTARD at LFIB

Emilie Testard, Franco-Thai, former student of the LFIB, now lecturer and researcher at the prestigious INALCO (National Institute of Oriental Languages ​​and Civilizations) in Paris, came on Tuesday January 31 to meet the 2nd A to share her experience and her professional career.

Interpreter for President E. Macron during his recent visit to Bangkok, Emilie has also devoted herself to journalism, translation and the teaching of Thai language and literature.

Her Franco-Thai bilingualism and her rich experience served as assets for her to be requested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Paris for interpreting assignments, but her passion remained her research work on the classical literature of Ayutthaya until the time of King Rama V.
