Daniel - Participant Eris.jpg

"  I arrived in France a year ago now. I am here with my family. Four months ago my brother told me about ERIS and he told me that it was good to be able to learn to speak French, so I was very motivated. I really like being here because I can speak French and improve myself every day and that's important to me. I like cooking as much as the French lessons. I can meet people too, and I would love to be able to play soccer with all the people who are here.  "

Rabia, Lebanese

“I am Lebanese, I grew up in Beirut where I was a physics teacher. I left Lebanon two years ago. I have a lot of passion, like painting. I like to draw portraits in acrylic. I also like sewing and cooking. I got to know ERIS thanks to my friend Thomas who is Iraqi whom I met here in Lyon in January and who told me about the association. Then I came with him here and I met Carole and Méganne. I then wanted to take French lessons. I really enjoyed the time spent at ERIS. I liked the cooking, the lessons and the Gattegno method which is great for learning the language quickly. For me Eris is synonymous with brotherhood, love and family. I want to say thank you very much to ERIS. "
