WHO WE ARE
Excellang was created in December 2017 by Sylvie Desaintjean Mensik.
Sylvie is French, bilingual English and Spanish and lives in Annecy. After obtaining her BA in English, she moved to England where she graduated as a Certified Teacher of Modern Languages.
During her nine years of living in England, Sylvie taught French and Spanish in several cities and to a wide range of students.
Back in France in 2013, she taught English in high school and gave private lessons for adults and children. When a notorious chain company recruited her in 2017, Sylvie decided to start her own business, Excellang.
Empowered by her excellent knowledge of French and English educational systems, Sylvie has developed her own modern and entertaining teaching methodology.
Passionate, conscientious and professional, Sylvie places at the heart of her approach the listening and the confidence in order to allow you to feel comfortable and to reach your objectives.
