My name is Natacha, I’m a native French woman. I’m living in the south of France in the beautiful pyrenees mountain…
I am also a certified DAEFLE teacher (degree in teaching French as a second language)… And teaching French is one of my passions!
During the last 15 years I’ve been teaching French in many different countries, to students of all ages, levels and nationalities…
I am inviting you to come and live in my house to practice French in total immersion.
You will learn not only during the private French classes, but also as you discover with me the culture of my region and as we share daily life together… I believe this is the best way to improve and get more self confidence in speaking French!
My house is very charming and cosy, and I’m sure you will feel at home very quickly… You will have here a spacious, sunny and comfortable private room with beautiful views over the mountain!
It is located in a quiet and lovely hamlet next to a beautiful river and surrounded by stunning mountains.
The region is very green and lush, and everything is so quiet here… However there are a lot of social opportunities, (especially in spring, summer and autumn), lots of festivals, concerts and local events…
I really love this region and I’ll be so happy to show you all its secrets jewels, so you will fall in love with this place too!
What to do there?
We will decide the program of your stay together depending on your interests and desires…
Whether you like doing sportive, cultural or chilled out activities, there is so much to do in this region!
During your stay here you will have plenty of occasions to interact with locals, taste regional products, discover the local markets and cultural events, ask and answer questions, discuss about your thoughts, feelings and ideas… In this way you will improve your French in a stimulating and effortless way!

Natacha is a friendly, kind and considerate teacher. She was patiently attentive from the moment we first met. I can say that teaching comes naturally to her and her calm attentive presence makes learning fun and easy. She is clearly knowledgeable of French grammar and teaches it in fun ways. The inhibition I felt to speak French disappeared quite quickly.
The cheerful, warm and light atmosphere of the house makes it an extremely comfortable place for learning. The food she prepared was delicious and the time spent learning to cook with her was enjoyable.
The learning activities Natacha prepared for me were purposeful, creative and super fun! Her assessment of my language level was accurate and she observed skillfully when it was a good time to give me a break!
I am grateful to Natacha for helping me break through some barriers to understanding and speaking correctly in French. For anyone wishing to improve confidence and skill in speaking French I can highly recommend doing a French immersion course with Natacha.

I loved my time with Natacha! In this one week that I stayed with her in her beautiful home I’ve learned truly a lot!
When I came I was pretty much scared of saying anything in French. With her help I discovered what I’m actually capable of. I’ve learned that it is possible to speak about many things even with a small vocabulary and I’ve surprised myself again and again.
I experienced Natacha as a very good teacher with a deep understanding of the learning process. Her teaching style is VERY creative, gentle and much fun. I’ve felt very supported and seen with my individual needs and was impressed by her patience and empathy.
As a conclusion I can say that I’m happy that I gifted myself this French Immersion with Natacha!
It was an intense and beautiful experience. Also challenging and very rewarding! I left her home inspired and very proud of my progress : )

Anita: “My sister and I spent two weeks with Natasha, we’ve done many activities and tried interesting food. She really helped me with my french and I feel more confident speaking French since she’s helped me. During our morning lessons she created many fun games to help us learn the language.”
Alexandra: “This experience really helped me gain confidence in speaking French. With the many activities, trips and lessons Natasha provided, I was able to easily pick up vocabulary and expressions used in everyday life. We visited so many places and experienced so many new things!”

I recently spent 10 days “en séjour linguistique” with Natacha and her warm welcome meant I felt at home right from the start. Natacha has a charming home in a small hamlet surrounded by nature but with plenty of cultural excursions close at hand. Natacha’s pride in her region is matched by her enthusiasm for finding things to interest you and all the while she will be helping you to improve and develop your French in a very relaxed atmosphere.
If you would like to improve your French in a stunning natural setting and to experience the fascinating history and the rich and diverse culture of one of the lesser know regions of France with a warm, patient and enthusiastic teacher to guide you, then you will have a wonderful experience.
