Laurence Saunders

Laurence is a French national who lived and worked in England for a decade as a French teacher with Alliance Française and many Adult Education Centres in the South West.

She qualified originally as a translator/Interpreter in France and achieved a City and Guilds certificate in teaching French and Spanish to adults whilst in England.

In 2001, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts, with her husband, and worked as a medical interpreter in two city hospitals.

Back to Europe and with a new addition to the family, she resumed teaching in her native country in 2006, much aware of the growing demand from the English speaking community starting a new life in North Dordogne. She had been teaching in local town halls for a couple of years before formally setting up her own language school in 2007, where she works with other qualified and native teachers.

She started Skype courses in 2011, originally as a follow-up for her regular students who had to leave France for a while and didn't want to loose touch with the language. Her services quickly reached new spheres with new students learning online from the States, Canada,  Ireland and Great Britain, in preparation for a professional visit to France, a holiday, a more permanent stay or simply for pleasure.
