The cottage is located in the countryside, it is surrounded by gentle hills… You will have a comfortable and private room with a
double bed and a private bathroom + toilet as well as a living room/kitchen and a large terrace where you can enjoy meals outside with
barbecue. You will probably meet the three adorable dogs and the cat in the garden and will have the opportunity, if you wish it, to meet and, why not to hold a horse with a lead-rope or ride some of the eight horses of the property (a foal was born recently!).
You can read, drink a coffee, tea, smoke a cigarette if you wish, outside on your private terrace or on the sunny terrace of a café on the squares of the magnificent bastide of Eymet or Duras, medieval cities. You can also enjoy walks in the countryside and admire typical French landscapes!
We will share breakfasts and lunches together as well as dinner if you choose the full board option. Passionate about cooking, I will be happy to prepare you typical French dishes. During your stay in immersion, we will have the opportunity to go shopping and buy fresh products at the market or at local producers. />
My 10 year-experience in teaching enables me to provide you with tailored French courses. My approach focuses primarily on listening and speaking, familiarizing you with the everyday life French speaking, connecting the guided tours with the lessons we have in the mornings. I can teach for all levels from complete beginner to advanced. The French class takes place in the morning in the second loft where there is a library with many resources I will encourage you to use.
You will be up to 4 students maximum (if you come with a friend, a partner or your children). Trained as a historian when I was at the university, I like to connect the teaching of french with History as well as the history of languages. Any language reflects indeed the History, how the people used to live as a community through the ages. In my approach, I consider the relationship between teacher and student as a two-way relationship, I learn a lot with my students, their languages, their cultures, their jobs, their passions, this is such a rewarding and meaningful experience for me and my students!
