Jean Claude Hounou
Teachers, World Languages
World Language Teacher

Born in Brazzaville, Congo, and graduated from high school in Togo, I taught High School in Lomé for 19 years and was a Court certified interpreter and translator, and administered Baccalaureate exams.

In 2004, I moved to Denver and joined the Alliance Française where I teach all levels of French in group, private, and professional settings, I also teach students associated with DU Josef Korbel School of International Studies and Daniels College of Business.

I added to my Master’s degree in Linguistics from the University of Benin, Togo, by earning a BA in French with a Teaching License from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2009, because I consider life a perpetual apprenticeship, I graduated with a second Masters in French Literature from Middlebury College in 2015.

I taught all levels of French for 8 years at Dawson School, began 8 years as an AP Reader, and became a certified Language B French instructor in the IB Diploma Programme. I also speak African languages: Lingala, Mina and Ewe.

I strongly support “La Francophonie” and love to share my rich background with my students. Known as “Monsieur grammaire” among colleagues, I am always available for my students and their success.
