I am French.
I have been a teacher of technical English for many years and have written several books in that field.
I have also a degree in mediaeval archaeology from the Paris Sorbonne.
and a diploma in rural ethnology from the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris.
I have written extensively (in French but also in English) on French rural vernacular architecture
and in particular on dry stone-built walls and buildings in France and across the world.
I currently maintain two Internet sites (www.english-for-techies.net - www.pierreseche.com).
I am a regular contributor to the French-language Wikipédia as well as an occasional one to the English-language Wikipedia.--Christian Lassure 09:01, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
