About Vidya Suresh – our speaker

With over 30 years of teaching experience at the Alliance Française de Bangalore and more than 20 years of experience in student counseling, Vidya Suresh currently handles the South Asia Office of ESIGELEC, a Premier French Graduate School of Engineering. She has also served for eight years as Education Adviser, Campus France, Bangalore.

Having met and interacted with a large number of students over the years, she came across many of them who found it difficult to get started with writing their CV and Statement of Purpose. It was with the intention of assisting them that she organized the first workshop, The Written Word, at the Alliance Française de Bangalore. Almost a hundred such sessions have been conducted in more than 20 cities across the country, including a few IITs, IIMs and NITs.

As a language teacher, she observed that most learners dropped out approximately after the first twenty hours of embarking on the journey. She therefore put together the session HOW TO LEARN A FOREING LANGUAGE to help such learners get back on track and more importantly, to enjoy the fascinating experience of learning a language that goes way beyond words.

In 2017, she was awarded the Knight of the Order of Academic Palms by the Government of France, for her work in the field of promotion of French Higher Education in India.
