About me

Reine Pousson-Ribis

My name is Reine. I was born in the South of France, not far from Carcassonne. I am a psychologist and a French teacher, and have always been passionate about foreign languages and civilizations. Based on my experience in psychology, and aware of the difficulties in learning a new language, I propose a full immersion experience, in which the student benefits from individual lessons, and shares with my family and me the day-to-day life.

Getting to know the student better, allows me to optimize and enhance the learning experience. In fact, every student has its own particular way to approach foreign languages, and it is in the daily interaction that we can discover the most enriching methods to learn.

 “This diverse training and experience qualifies her as teacher with proven human qualities.  Always ready to listen to her students, Reine puts in place specific strategies for those students who encounter difficulties in their learning of the language”
