Charline Rouffet has been affiliated with the Research group Foreign Language Education since 2016. In September 2018, she began her doctoral research on the influence of communicative testing of productive skills on the didactic approach of modern foreign language teachers.
Charline studied Literary Studies at the University of Nimes and Paris-IV Sorbonne. She came to the Netherlands in 2005 and obtained her first-level French teaching qualification at VU Amsterdam in 2007. Her research focused on the use of the target language as the primary working language, in the context of TaBaSCO (Task Based School Organisation for the Acquisition of Language), a project that supports a task-oriented approach to language learning.
Charline worked at the Hermann Wesselink college in Amstelveen and the Cals College in Nieuwegein, and as a course coordinator at the Alliance Française in Utrecht. Since 2010, she has been working at the Archimedes Institute for the first- and second-level French teaching qualification programme. She teaches the modules of literature, language skills and didactics for the bachelor's and master's programmes.
