Bonjour my name is Laurence. I am French and a French teacher. As my husband is Russian-Armenian, I have extensive experience in teaching French to foreigners and I am passionate about intercultural matters. I spent my childhood in the United States, later I lived in Russia. We have been living in the Vaucluse for over four years, where we have run a guest house that now hosts receptions and weddings.

You will have a pleasant single room with a double bed, and a shared bathroom with a bathtub. If you want to come with friends or family, they can be welcomed in a nearby guest house, and meet you during the day. In the summer, you will enjoy eating in the sun outside while enjoying the view of the Provençal countryside. I prepare a generous homemade cuisine, mainly based on fresh produce purchased at the markets from local producers. I have a cat at home and do not smoke, but you can smoke on the terrace.

Learn French in France

As a teacher for several years, I can teach at all levels, from beginner to advanced. All my courses are tailor-made. I build a program to help you achieve your objectives, based on the communicative approach, but also with exercises to reinforce the points that deserve to be reinforced. For me, a homestay immersion is the best way to improve your French in a natural way, combining conversation and culture. The courses are always in French but as I am bilingual in English, Russian and speak a little German, if you are a beginner, I will be able to help you communicate and understand our grammar.

The courses are held in French, but being bilingual in English (and also in Russian) I can always provide more precise explanations if necessary.

We will have as many conversations as possible during our lessons, but also by sharing meals and excursions with me as a guide.

I will put all my experience and know-how at your service to help you progress quickly. Guaranteed results!

French lessons can take place in the lounge or outdoors, usually in the morning, depending on the season; the activities are mainly in the afternoon or evening, as desired.

Welcome to Provence. It is possible to walk from home, whether you are sporty or not. You will discover the magnificent panorama of the dentelles de Montmirail, Mont Ventoux and Monts de Vaucluse with plunging views of the hills, olive groves, lavender and vineyards. It is a paradise for cyclists. We will also visit Vaison la Romaine, which is one of the most beautiful villages in France, as well as the other perched villages in the area. In Malaucène, you will discover the typical streets and the Provençal way of life. We will go to the market and I will be happy to teach you some recipes. During your stay, you will discover a lot of things while enjoying the best of life.

“Laurence is an excellent teacher”

“I learned a lot and I think my French has really improved (even though I’m still a beginner). Laurence went above and beyond to show me around, give me great French experiences, and expose me to the food and culture. I had a great experience!”Ann
