Hello! I'm Hayet! I come from Douai, in the North of France but my different work experiences lead me to Scotland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. I finally landed in Manchester in England where I lived 6 years working for the Alliance Française and other organisations. My teaching approach is serious and yet playful, which allows me to satisfy my students needs in terms of learning whether they are 7 or 77! I know that learning a language can be a challenge and I will do my best to give you an amazing and stressless experience, so come along!

My name is Philippe and I'm from Cahors. Initially town planner, I know my city as well as the numerous specificities of the Lot departement. Be sure that you can rely on my knowledge in order to satisfy your curiosity during your holidays and through the visit that we may complete together. Nevertheless, I'm a teacher above all and life brought me to work in Canada, Poland, some French cities like Montpellier and Toulouse and finally in England. I'm very supportive and focused on your improvement. So let's talk in French!
