Nine years of hosting! TEFL qualified

We're a friendly, outgoing English family of three. We've lived in Normandy for thirteen years. So no need to travel abroad to improve your English!
Our interests include the arts, yoga, travel, reading, history, current affairs, animal welfare (volunteers at dog refuge), walking, cycling, swimming and cooking.
Our bilingual daughter attends Caen university studying languages. She attends the gym, plays piano and has interests in animal welfare and nutrition.
My husband has a passion for history and current affairs. He works in the UK but is home most school holidays and weekends.
I'm a qualified artist, painting in acrylics. I'm TEFL qualified and an enthusiastic cook. Students are invited to help in the kitchen. Meals are homemade, delicious and varied.

We offer fun cultural day trips to the many interesting local attractions.
For example Mont St Michel, Bayeux Tapestry, D-day beaches and memorials, day trip to Jersey Channel Island, Villedieu copper bell foundry, zoo, aquacentre, choices of many beautiful sandy beaches (25 mins drive away), House and Gardens of Christian Dior in Granville, St Malo, castles and chateaux.
Other activities include arts and crafts at home, cycling, dog walking, swimming, bowling, ice skating, escapade ( indoor climbing), crazy golf and accrobranches. Also pottery classes in Villedieu and horse riding at local equestrian centre. Outings depend on covid restrictions. We encourage students to create a 'scrapbook' as a record of their daily activities, day trips and menu. We have English television, Netflix and board games.

We've successfully hosted students for the past nine years and have found the experience very rewarding and enriching. We love to meet families from all over France, we very often remain in contact years later.
Some students arrive feeling nervous and timid with little confidence in speaking English. With total immersion in everyday English family life confidence grows in a warm, friendly, relaxed, welcoming environment. With one to one tuition, by the end of the sejour, the result is an improved understanding of the English language.
We understand students' needs are varied so the program is tailored to suit their requirements with a personalised itinery. Our aim is to ensure that all students experience a rich, happy and memorable sejour, learning the essential skills needed for exams and future studies, of speaking, reading and writing in English with confidence.

Nos 2 enfants se sont régalés chez Adele, Andrew et Maya, qui ne manquent pas d'idées pour les occuper tout en leur faisant pratiquer leur anglais. Les activités sont nombreuses et variées, l'immersion est totale et l'accueil est chaleureux. Au bilan, un très agréable séjour pour nos enfants, à la fois ludique et instructif !
