Carla Tarini lived in Nice, France for several years after college and has been teaching French to students of various ages ever since. She discovered teaching with Comprehensible Input 10 years ago and became a CI presenter, coach, and trainer. Carla has written hundreds of short, engaging, comprehensible stories for her students. Her first published series, Qui Parle Français?, introduces readers to French speakers from across the globe. She is currently working on another non-fiction series, À Quoi je pense? which will also be available in Spanish, En Qué estoy pensando? Carla lives near Chicago and likes walking along the lakefront whenever she can. During lockdown, she added making seed crackers and ginger-turmeric kombucha to her list of home-bound activities.
