Bonjour my name is Laurence. I am a French native teacher. As my husband is from Russia, I have a long experience of teaching French for foreigners both abroad and in France. I have spent my childhood in the USA, later I lived in Russia . Back to France my husband and I have decided to open our home to share our love of Provence with our guests.
You will have your comfortable private room with a queensize bed + bathroom sink and shower. If you would like to come with friends or family we will be very happy to welcome them as well. We have a spacious guesthouse with an independant gîte that can host up to 4 people. You will enjoy having breakfast in the outdoor patio with a view to the magnificent Mont Ventoux. Sharing meals with you will be a pleasure for us. I prepare generous home-made cooking and with my husband, we love having guests. Also, as my husband runs our B&B, you might have the opportunity to converse with other French speakers. We have a cat at home, and we are non smokers but you can smoke on the terrasse.
Learn French Language in Mont Ventoux
As a teacher for many years, I can teach all levels, from beginners to advanced. All my courses are tailor-made. I build a programm to help you reach your aims based on the communicative approach but also with exercises to reinforce the points that need to be. To me, the immersion at the teacher’s home is the best way to improve your French conversational skills in the most authentic way, combining language and culture. The courses are always in French but as I am fluent in English, Russian and speak some German, I am efficient in helping you communicate or understand the grammar. We will have as many conversations as possible, during our lessons, but also sharing delicous meals and discovering the area with me as your guide.
You will have French classes in the living room or outside (whether permitting) everymorning. The group will consist of four students at the most (with the same level of French and only if you come with your friend, partner or family members). I will use all my knowledge in teaching French to make you master French language in no time!

“The week went well with Laurence and Samuel. Laurence was flexible in the hours of lessons, which allowed me to cycle even as the weather was a little bad for a few days. The meals were delicious. I would like to come back !”
« Many thanks for your hospitality ! »
“Laurence, you are the ultimate teacher, and you helped me to continue to learn and understand French. My favorite day, although the last one, was the climb to Mont Ventoux; and also the picnic at the lake, and all our conversations. Thanks again for everything, I will come back!”
