Management

 

Didier

Didier, the head of French teaching LIP, is a qualified History and Geography teacher and has over 20 years of experience in teaching high school students in France. He has degrees in History and English, as well as an FLE diploma for teaching French as a foreign language. Didier and Jennifer are also in charge of putting together the delicious, homemade, locally produced lunches that we offer at Vazerac..

Jennifer

Jennifer, Didier’s wife, created a company named ’Anglais in France’ in 2008. The company offers residential immersion programs for French teenagers wishing to immerse themselves in the English language by living with British homestay families based in Southwest France. In 2015 she decided to create LIP in order to specialise in English courses for adult professionals. Having received a lot of demand from English-speakers looking to learn French, Jennifer and Didier decided to expand the business and offer professional French immersion courses for adults.

Teaching method

Didier has been working to provide French courses for English speaking residents in France since 2015. His students have all shared the same satisfaction with the courses provided, and they have all remarked upon the drastic developments they have noted in just a very short space of time. (see our page ‘They liked us!’ ). Didier’s unique teaching style is founded upon a dedication to the success of his students. He is an expert in teaching the complexities of French grammar in a manner in which his students find simple to understand.

Immerse yourself in French

Speaking from his own experience, Didier is a strong believer that the quickest and most effective way to learn a language is by diving in head-first and immersing yourself in a French-speaking environment. His experience of learning English by living with British families during the summer holidays as a teenager convinced him of the effectiveness of learning a language through immersion.

Teaching and mentoring

All the learning plans for one-to-one and group French immersion courses are carefully organised and supervised by Didier. He is also responsible for monitoring the progress of all of our students during their stay in Vazerac. Didier is not only an expert French tutor, but a highly-skilled coach who will work closely with you to make sure you’re right on track to meet your personal French-related goals.
