English immersion or preparatory classes in Dordogne with Susan and Peter

NEW !! We offer English language immersion for adults and teenagers in the northern Dordogne. Also experienced in offering commercial or scientific preparation courses (CPEG).

We are a dynamic couple who offer a wide variety of sports and cultural activities. Our house is a bright and modern house, located in the center of a beautiful natural park in the Dordogne.

Susan is a qualified and enthusiastic teacher who adapts the lessons to the needs and interests of each individual. The lessons usually include interactive online resources (such as podcasts, videos, games, and quizzes), role-playing, the production of a learning journal, and a reference workbook to take home. Susan also has experience in teaching Prepa courses such as Mines Ponts, Centrale, ECRICOME, and ECG, etc. A minimum of 10 hours of lessons is required during the stay, as we believe this is essential to ensure an appropriate level of language improvement.

Peter is a former business manager, former CEO, and former national cycling champion.

Susan has over 10 years of experience hosting adults and teenagers and 20 years of commercial experience in international sales and marketing.

Your English immersion experience :
A typical day with us

Our house is an English enclave, we speak English all the time; there is English television/radio/DVDs/Netflix, English board games, English books and magazines; the food, however, is international. - even our neighbors are English, and many activities take place with English speakers. Students are constantly encouraged and helped to speak English and we do our best to teach them English customs and culture.

We welcome students and adults of all levels, offering total immersion in an English environment. We encourage students to take a minimum of 10 hours of lessons per week (optional) if they want to see lasting improvement in their language learning. Susan has a degree in science, a postgraduate qualification in business, and a TESOL grade A qualification. In addition to over 10 years of accommodation experience, Susan also has 3 years of teaching business English online.

Lessons are personalized based on students' needs and interests - whether for revision, exam preparation, conversation to improve confidence, or English for specific purposes (e.g. business, science, tourism, thesis preparation, etc.). During the stay, a learning journal is kept and students go home with a workbook and reference materials.

In addition to the 10 hours of lessons during the week, there is a wide variety of cultural and sports activities to choose from.

J'ai passé une semaine géniale chez Susan et Peter, j'étais en totale immersion anglaise. Étant en classe préparatoire scientifique, je suis venue pour m'entraîner aux épreuves écrites et orales d'anglais et préparer au mieux les concours. C'était super car Susan connaissait bien les différentes épreuves et a su me donner de nombreux conseils. On a donc fait ensemble des traductions, des expressions écrites et aussi une colle !

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine chez Susan et Peter. Susan est une excellente cuisinière, Peter a beaucoup d'humour. Tous deux sont très dynamiques, très sportifs, ouverts et attentifs aux besoins de chacun. Le lieu idéal pour la nature, le calme, les fleurs, les petits oiseaux, la convivialité et l'humour 'british' et pour .....Susan et Peter.

J’étais très bien installé, la chambre était très bien, mes hôtes étaient très disponibles pour moi. Leurs amis étaient anglais (même les français parlaient anglais !), tout étaient en anglais. Une vraie immersion. J’ai pu faire beaucoup de vélo (j’avais emporté le mien car j’avais vu que Peter était un ex coureur cycliste), scrabble en anglais, fitness avec Susan (c’était sympa). J’avais emmené des lectures en anglais, j’ai vu des films en anglais, tv ou documentaire Netflix. Mes hôtes se sont vraiment bien occupés de moi. Les cours de Susan étaient très bien, j’ai fait des progrès à l’écrit ; à l’oral j’étais plus vigilant pour faire moins de fautes. Accueil très sympa et correspondait vraiment à ce que je voulais. Par contre je ferais un séjour plus long si c’est possible (3 semaines serait mieux) ! Gaëtan, Juillet 2020
