Welcome to La Petite Maison des Langues Language School In Thiviers.

Laurence Saunders is a French national who lived and worked in England for a decade as a French teacher with Alliance Fran├žaise 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 lfe 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.

With her cultural and teaching experience, she is now formally establishing herself as a link between non-French speaking newcomers and local people!
