PGO” is a fun way of saying I’m an easygoing teacher and guide. I’ve lived in, worked in and traveled to France more than 30 times. I have been teaching college-level French language and culture for over a decade. I’m also the author of Literary Paris, a book of photography and travel essays.

LitLifeFrance offers new ways for you to enjoy all things French. Enjoy 'insider access' to the culture and the country as you prepare to enjoy and celebrate unforgettable, one-week travel experiences!
