Susan Sebert

Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Susan visited Québec City in the 1970’s and fell in love with the city and the Québecois. Now more than 35 years later, she’s still here! Her interest in the French language and culture began with studies in French literature in Strasbourg, France and was followed up with a B.A. in French from Université Laval, in Québec City. Most of Susan’s professional career has been invested in adult education, from teaching English as a second language to coordinating training programs in various organizations — from private companies to provincial and federal departments and finally to the Québec City public transit commission. In 2002, she received an M.A. in adult education from the Université de Sherbrooke. Combining her knowledge of the city with her linguistic skills, her experience in adult education and her passion for the culture and history of Québec, Susan now leads educational excursions, sharing her love for the culture and history of Québec.
