Teaching languages in a new and efficient way that will leave you relaxed and refreshed.
My name is Therese Lafleche and I am so glad you are here.
I was born in Canada and grew up bilingual, speaking both english and french at home as well as at school.
Since the age of 16, I have loved to travel and discover more about the world, different cultures…and myself in the process!
Of course, in that journey, I have discovered both the joys and frustrations of international travel and living.
At Laflechelingo we offer amazing language retreats, which are offered in a luxury vacation setting and are extremely effective.
We have also developed the Gypsy Souls section where we offer coaching to help you embrace your Gypsy Soul and are working on different projects to help expats transition into or enjoy expat life to the fullest.
Laflechelingo was created with a big dream behind it. To bring people together through languages and travel.
We believe that with these two things, people can start to fully understand and respect different cultures. Though we may have different languages, religions, traditions…when you look deeper we are all the same!
My favourite quote is one by Mark Twain “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
I would like to thank you for your fantastic English classes, particularly for your dedication and your clear teaching methods.
Your enthusiasm, patience and openness simply makes the difference and has encouraged us all to continue our lessons to improve our English skills.
Your lessons have always been very interesting and the format has helped us progress as it is fun and productive.
Good luck and best regards
A few months ago, I was told that I will be accompanying our foreign business partners in the future. This could be a great chance for me, but, I hadn’t practiced or spoken English for years, my grammar was awful.
I had the feeling, that I forgot all the English words I ever knew, it took me 5 minutes to be able to say a full sentence… and so I was forced to take English lessons first.
I really wasn`t happy about it. I expected the classes to be absolutely boring and figured I was too old to learn, it would be hopeless and embarrassing for me.
But nothing like this happened. Within a few days, I spoke fluently again. We told jokes in English and we told English stories to each other. We discussed politics and gossiped about whatever we wanted. I wasn`t forced to speak- I enjoyed speaking.
It was a diverting and inspiring time with you- and yesterday, a business partner praised my English… Thank you for everything!
