We are very lucky to be living in the beautiful countryside with a lovely view of the Pyrenees from our house.
We have been taking in students for the past 4 years I have my TEFL diploma and I do all the lessons with the student.
It's really important that a student feels comfortable and relaxed and has fun, I believe that with this approach the student can progress quickly.
It's wonderful to see the progress a student can make in gaining confidence and progressing in their English. Lessons aren't all about written exercises. Feeling confident to speak is a very important part in progressing.
I feel it's very important to adapt each lesson to the student's likes and needs.
Lessons will include a mix of watching videos, listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading & writing
We love spending time outdoors, either gardening, swimming in the pool, walking, cycling.
The girls are very artistic and creative and enjoy making, cards, making jewelry, sewing.
We have some lovely lakes around us, to make a change from our pool. We can also use pedalos, canoes, and do paddle boarding on the lakes. (season dependant)
We enjoy taking walks and have 2 very gentle rescue dogs.
Cooking is a very big part of family life, and trying to eat healthier is very important, we like making bread biscuits cakes, and jam. A couple of our particular favorite things to make are fudge & Lemon curd. :-) YUM
We enjoy a good movie & have a great movie package.
We love to listen to music, and sing & dance lots, not very good, but we enjoy it.
Life is too short to be serious, let your hair down and have some fun. You only live once. :-)
