our story

The Turner Learning Center (TLC) was founded in 2003 by Frank and Marina Duchêne.

Their goal was to provide a structured and viable English Language Learning Service for their children’s English language Learning,

to ensure they were proficient upon leaving high school.

Knowing that it takes 1200 hours of academic exposure, in a one to one setting, to reach proficiency, the complexity of managing long term objectives had to be put into place.

TLC created their unique English Language Learning Management System based on the acquisition of 120 credits allowing teachers and learners to monitor learning easily.

With our management team working from France, England and Greece as well as our teaching team of 55+ teachers (living all over the world), our extensive curriculum comprised of 35 potential courses, our online homework solutions and our accurate testing and assessing tools, we presently teach over 650 students in individual and group settings, either face to face or online, all over France.

about us

WHAT WE DO:

Speaking English proficiently is not something that just happens, it is the result of a combination of goal setting, regular evaluation and academic exposure. However, with structure and viability long term goals reach fruition.

There are many ways to achieve proficiency in English with TLC:

1- Face to face private lessons in the comforts of the student's home
2- Online one to one learning
3- Face to face learning in small groups of max 6 students in our Center
4- Online learning in small groups of max 4 students
5- Attending summer programs organised by our in-house counselor

But they all have one thing in common:

To speak English Proficiently students need to reach C2 of the CEFR. To get there students will need to acquire 120 credits while moving up the 6 different CEFR levels (A1 A2 B1 B2 C1 C2)

HOW WE DO IT

We assess our students:

With a baseline test upon entering TLC to establish how much English our students know and attribute an accurate number of credits to it.

During the academic year students are assessed with formative and summative tests internally to evaluate if they are on track.

Once students acquire the necessary credits, students validate their English Language Learning level by sitting internationally recognized English Language exams. These exams are taken outside of TLC, an independence that guarantees the quality of our teaching.

We advise and TEACH A CURRICULUM

Throughout their years at TLC with attainable objectives and consequently the appropriate CURRICULUM to follow:

OBJECTIVE

C2+ in Seconde
C2+ in Première
C2+ in Terminale
C2 in Terminale
C1+ in Terminale
C1 in Terminale
B2+ in terminale
B1+ in Terminale
C2+ in Univeristy

CURRICULUM

TLC SECONDE C2+
TLC PREMIERE C2+
TLC BAC C2+
TLC BAC C2
TLC BAC C1+
TLC BAC C1
TLC BAC B2 +
TLC BAC B1+
TLC UNIV C2+

Parents are provided with annual updates as to the advancement of their child in terms of credits earned and when they could validate their next English Language Level.

We manage our students' learning:

Students will have been set a goal of a credits to earn that corresponds to the level of English they wish to achieve. Sometimes students earn credits because of extra homework or other extracurricular activities such as going to summer Camps. Once the necessary credits have been earned they are able to sit Internationally recognized exams.

Students earn credits depending on their number of hours of academic exposure.

Once students have obtained the necessary number of  credits they are invited to validate their corresponding English language Exam level.
