About Us

THE FOUNDERS

Acacia has been created by Christophe et Eugenia GALIAN. Their common passion for teaching and their love for children have naturally led to creating this innovative bilingual nursery and kindergarten.

Eugenia Centre Acacia
Our Bio
Eugenia GALIAN

Eugenia has grown up in Singapore in a multicultural and multilingual environment which allows her to master English and Chinese from an early age. As a teenager, she fell in love with France and its culture. She decided to live there and has finished her French university studies with success in the domain of linguistics and then a Master 2 in Pedagogy Engineering.
Before the creation of Acacia, she had obtained a solid teaching experience in languages (French, English, Chinese) with teenagers and young children in three different countries : France (Association of “primo-arrivants”, Singapour (Ministry of Education Language Centre, Nanyang Polytechnic and Alliance FranНaise) and Thailand (Garden International School, and Alliance FranНaise).

Eugenia has a great artistic sensibility that she has developed since her young age through music, drawing and painting. This creative potential and her pedagogy abilities allow her to imagine and to create many documents and attractive “play and learn” activities to the great satisfaction of her
students and their parents and also to the delight of her three year old daughter who is already multilingual like her mummy.

Our Bio
Christophe GALIAN

His career and the different courses he has taken allowed him to develop good skills in the following domains : Educational Engineering (Master PRO UTICEF – University of Louis Pasteur Strasbourg), Teaching French as a foreign language (Master FLE), Multimedia and Physic (DES Astrophysic – University of Paul Sabatier Toulouse).

Furthermore, his different working experiences in Asia, in Vietnam (as the Educational Advisor of French teaching in the french-speaking universities of Agence Universitaire de la Francophone – AUF ), in Singapore (as the French Specialist at the Ministry of Education Languages Centre) and in Thailand (Bangkok’s Alliance FranНaise ) allow him to obtain a strong practice in French teaching and a good knowledge of the asian public and context.
