News Around Webster: Chappell, Cosic, Cuille, Fatton
Lionel Cuille

Lionel Cuillé delivered a paper on Oct. 2 during the Biennale du français at the University of Chicago titled "Learn French, and find a job! : l’impact des initiatives en français professionnel"

His research shows that speaking French is an asset on the international job market. 

Cuillé is working closely with his partners at the French embassy to identify internships for students who will minor or double major in French. Such high-impact experiences open the doors of French companies in France and other French-speaking parts of the world. Being able to adapt to a francophone business culture is an important marketable skill when students look for a job back home.

Cuillé is the Jane and Bruce Robert Chair in French and Francophone Studies, and assistant professor on the College of Arts & Science's Department of International Languages and Cultures.
