The creation of our company: the meeting between 2 entrepreneurs
Antoine Gentil, after two years of expatriation with his family in Dallas, Texas, comes back to France with an excellent level of English. As for his three little sisters, they came back bilingual. The idea comes to him naturally : the best way to learn English is to be immersed at a young age. So what about offering a language immersion at home ?
After obtaining a master in « Innovation and business undertaking » at ESCP-Europe, – former expatriate in Canada – Julien and Antoine founded the Baby-speaking company with the help of professionnals in recruitment, Maria Kihlstedt – senior lecturer at Paris X-CNRS in psycholinguistics – and John Herbstritt – expert in rhetoric of language at Berkeley University.
They develop together educational tools and the training sessions by refering to Maria's research and John's experience, who has taught English in France for several years.
