Please tell us about your experience with French language.

I received my DEUG in German after two years of studies at the Université d’Orléans-La Source, then continued my German studies at the Sorbonne, where I received the Licence and Maîtrise in German and where I prepared successfully for the CAPES and Agrégation in German. I taught French and was a dorm associate at Saint-Andrew’s School in Middletown, DE, then became a dorm parent and taught French and German at Concord Academy in Concord, MA, then became Head of the Foreign Language Department and taught French at the Cambridge School of Weston in Weston, MA. I take Oldfields students to Montpellier in Southern France during our May Program (I offered a May Program in German in May 2013 too). I enjoy reading history in French, English and German. I love architecture and taught a class on French architecture too.


Bonjour. Je m’appelle Frédéric Bielaszka-DuVernay. I am a native speaker from Orléans and the Loire Valley and a French, German and History teacher. I teach all levels of French at Oldfields School, an all-girl boarding school in Sparks, Md.
