ENGLISH COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT
Utilizing a variety of tools and methods tailored for learners of all ages, Bill and the Fipsila Coaching team facilitate Fipsila's English Competency Development in the USA and in France. All lessons are learner-centric and immersive, providing an open, honest, and trusting environment for learners to grow their skill in the English language. Fipsila provides both one-on-one and group sessions (up to five people) for all ages (children, adolescents and adults) and TOEFL and TOEIC preparation.
As with our business consulting service, Fipsila is able to join the learner and/or host the learner in the USA, France, and around the world. This includes English on the French farm! We do this via face-to-face with both individuals and groups, via webcam, telephone, workshops, etc. (the learner determines the best method)
One-on-one sessions: All sessions are learner-centric and learner-focused. The session objective is to engage the learner by talking about relevant learner topics/storytelling. The focus is on listening, speaking, and pronunciation.
Group sessions: All sessions are learner-centric and learner-focused. The session objective is to listen clearly, to comprehend more, and to be confident in conversation with anyone at anytime. The focus is on repeating heard words and engaging in everyday conversation. Additional focuses are speaking and pronunciation.
Children sessions: Sessions with younger children focus on developing language skills through various fun activities.
Adolescent sessions: All adolescent sessions focus on confidence in the academic and in the real world.
Adult/Professional sessions: All adult/professional sessions focus on listening and writing skills, interview preparation, and career growth (if applicable). Sessions are structured with a warm-up lesson, focus lesson(s), and reflective lesson. Focus lessons are changed every 7-10 minutes to keep engagement high and attention steady.

WHAT PEOPLE LOVE ABOUT OUR ENGLISH COMPETENCY DEVELOPMENT
"Bill is an amazing English teacher and trainer… the lessons have been tailored to fit my needs and took place in real life situations in a dynamic environment which makes them really enjoyable. Reading, speaking, and listening boosted right after the first lesson!"
"Bill was my teacher for three months at the beginning of my expatriation to the US. Bill listens and follows the level of his students without stressing them. His courses are rich and varied, so he always finds a way to interest you despite the difficulties that everyone can have. By studies [...] through practical exercises outside, I was able to gain confidence day after day. Go to see him with an open mind, you will not be disappointed."
"... a good opportunity to practice pronunciation ... we told stories to learn more about how to express ourselves in English … The Fipsila Game is a fun game – we laughed and it challenged me to speak and talk about myself and different subjects ... While at the lake swimming we told Bill – this is the first time we speak to each other in English naturally. We are talking and we say “hey” we are speaking in English naturally without even thinking about it."
Adele et Juliette from northern France
"... Everyday we spoke English. I improved my vocabulary and pronunciation. I am motivated to apply this training. I discovered a new culture and new games which are very useful ... The training was engaging and fun. We learned with games and books improving our vocabulary and pronunciation. I learned new expressions. I will apply what I learned at school, while traveling and in my future career. It was the first time I experienced English Immersion with a USA family, in France, AND the first time I spoke English for one whole week ..."
Mathilde and Celia from Toulouse, France area
"The training helped me gain confidence and I am more motivated to speak and use English in the future."
"My English is better. Bill and Catherine speak English with us so it’s more simple to speak with them in English. I now want to speak English more with my parents. All the activities were a fun way to learn English."
