The students

Minimum age
16 years

Private courses are ideal to achieve specific objectives. They are particularly suitable for professionals who need to acquire language skills specific to their fields of activity, for students who wish to prepare for an examination, and for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of English to meet their specific needs. In your teacher’s home, you will benefit from unique learning conditions. For instance, discussions, over meals or at other times, and visits will be conducted exclusively in the target language. Living with your teacher implies that every single moment will be put to good use to reach your objectives, not only during the lessons, but also whenever you are with your teacher during the day. You will experience full immersion, without a chance to speak in your mother tongue. Your teacher will be there to help you with your difficulties, at your own pace, since you will be his one and only student (unless you choose the programme for two students: see options).

Programme for two students in the teacher's home
Students who choose this programme arrive with a person of their choice. They must both be at the same language level, have the same objectives and arrive on the same dates because they will be taking lessons together. There is a 20% reduction for each student.

Special cocooning for under 18s (compulsory up to 13 years)
The teacher and their family spend a reasonable amount of time with the students, as they would with a friend staying with them, but they do not necessarily accompany the students at all times. The Cocooning option guarantees the continued presence of the teacher or of an adult member of their family in the house when the student is there.

Preparatory course for official English language exams
(B2 First, C1 Advanced, C2 Proficiency, TOEIC, TOEFL)
The exam does not take place on the premises.

Business language programme
This programme is adapted for professionals who need to acquire a specialised vocabulary (business, medicine, law, computing, architecture, tourism, etc.).

Students aged 15 and under must take 2-way transfers unless we are notified that they are accompanied by their parents.

Airport transfers are available from the nearest airport to the teacher’s place of residence.

Très contente des cours donnés par Sophia. Par contre, 3h de cours par jour sont suffisants. J avais pris 4h et comme c était à la suite, la dernière heure était de trop. C est une erreur de ma part et pas de Sophia L appartement est un peu désuet mais tout à fait confortable. La cohabitation s est très bien passée.
