One of the U.K.’s leading modern language entrepreneurs
I’m Nathalie Danon
Two years later and deluded by office jobs, I placed an ad in a village shop offering French lessons. One call came in and that was it!
When I realised just how much I loved teaching languages, I focused my efforts and formed my first company: Bleu Blanc Rouge. For six years, I taught French in primary schools across Berkshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, running clubs and teaching individuals.
By the end, I was working with 625 students every week! But I began to be frustrated by the limitations that came from being on the road (term time only sessions, limited resources etc) and started to explore ways of improving the learning environments, through immersion and consistency.
The result was to grow the business into a language academy and The Vici Language Academy was born in July 2008.
I am here to help you turn your love of languages into profit
My staff recently complimented me for my resilience (a must have for anyone running a small business!) and for my ability to just get stuff done!
I would also hope that my continuous approach to learning and development inspires others, along with my lack of inhibition when it comes to asking for help.
So, if you are a language school owner looking for growth, a ‘one-man-band’ language tutor thinking of opening your own language school or a secondary school teacher fed up with the education system but still loving languages and wanting to make a difference, then we may be a good fit.
I am here to help you turn your love of languages into profit, by learning the skills you need to make a sustainable business using my experience, lessons learnt and highs & lows of being a modern language entrepreneur!
I’ve done the hard work…
Over the last 10 years I have grown a successful and profitable Language Academy. I know what works and what doesn’t.
