What She Offers

Jeanette loves being around younger Learners and helping them achieve their aims. She has innovative teaching methods and always ignites the passion she has for English in others. A great stay with fun lessons and lots of excursions to see the area.

TESOL and English Degree

As part of the activities we offer, we can invite the student to spend a day or so in my daughter’s IT and Web Design studio, meet like-minded designers who can share their skills and talk about the industry. This activity will be offered free of charge.

Her daughter, Lexi is a warm and creative owner/manager who often hosts her own young interns from France, Holland and Germany, so she and her team are used to being observed and involved in sharing insights into their work. The studio is a happy place, with areas for work, games and family pets! It is a short drive from my home and we can offer transport there and back.

The student will only be offered this activity if they are really interested in IT and learning about design on Apple iMacs etc.

My host family was perfect! I liked everything about my family, and I felt like I was in my own home. The food was really good and I enjoyed our dinner conversations. They are very friendly people and I really enjoyed my time with them.  Vertie Rieth

My host mother is kind and we communicate well. We have gone to a lot of places together. I love the food she provided. She always asks me what I like and what I don’t like to eat. This home is really clean, and my host mother keeps everything neat. I am very happy here. Francina Duenas
