A native French (and wool) teacher

Marie-Claude, native French teacher teaching all year long in the heart of our medieval charming town.
Wool fabric was a main activity since middle-age in this occitan area. Its trade created numerous contacts and language exchanges between South of France and Italy, Germany, Spain and of course England.
