French with Florence Tourne

Florence Tourne is Franco-Belgian. She came to Nab Cottage, an English Language School in Rydal near Ambleside, to attend an English course in Summer 1994. She loved the area so much that she decided to stay! After an intensive course in « Teaching French as a Foreign Language » at International House in London in 1997, she started teaching on a one-to-one basis, moving on to group teaching in 2006.
She is also teaching French to children as young as three years old.
