Sophia was born and raised in Paris. After studying haute couture embroidery, she honed her craft working for world-renowned fashion icons like Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier. However, when she's not busy with her needle and thread, she loves to check out art exhibits at museums, going to the movies, cooking and drawing. She moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of 2023 and joined Coucou in May. She also loves her two little cats Amato and Mnouchkine.

You're Débutant, if...

You just took our Intro to French course. Or, you took high school French… but don’t remember much.

You can say “Je m’appelle…”, but that’s about it!

You have no idea when to use le, la, or li (oh wait, we made that last one up).

You’ve spent some time in a French-speaking country but never managed to pick up more than a couple of words.

Or maybe you live or work with a French speaker, and you’re dying to know what they’re saying!
