Bonjour à tous ! My name is Adeline Mateus. I am French and Portuguese. I was born and raised in France, in a small town next to Versailles. I have completed my first year of my Master’s degree in Communication Studies at Paris-Sorbonne University (Paris IV). I am here this year at Gustavus Adolphus in order to help you as a French Teaching Assistant. I love to travel and to discover new cultures, to learn new languages and to practice sport (especially handball and running). I like to read (I love French literature!), to go to the cinema and to make new friends. Come to see me at the Culpeper Center or feel free to stop by my office, which is located next to it. See you soon, I will be glad to help you!

Bonjour! My name is Kalyna Rieland and I am a Psychological Science and French double major from Edina, Minnesota. As of now the plan is to go onto graduate school to study Occupational Therapy after Gustavus, but we’ll see where life takes me! On campus I’m a French tutor, a proud member of the Lucia Singers, the Bells hand bell choir and the Gustie Greeter family. I love to go on runs, eat anything with Oreos, sauna, take long naps and hang out in my hammock. Come and visit during my tutoring hours, I would be more than happy to walk you through your tricky French homework!
