About Me


My name is Nathalie Duffy Saive.

I was born in Lyon, France and raised in a small village called Saint Genis L’Argentière in the Rhône-Alpes region. Check out the view I grew up with!
I moved to Ireland in 2003 and live in Castlebar, County Mayo since then. I am married to a wonderful Irish man; we are blessed with two beautiful children.

Following in my mother’s footsteps, I decided to orientate my career towards Childcare. From a very young age I had demonstrated care and affection to younger children and throughout the years, I developed an urge to guide and educate children with one goal: to unleash their full potential.

Life has brought me to settle in beautiful County Mayo where my husband and I self-built our home where we now happily live with our two wonderful children Jake and Leona.

In 2016, I heard about “La Jolie Ronde” a leading provider of French and Spanish language learning based in London, UK and operating since 1983.

I am now proud to be a “La Jolie Ronde” licensee, delivering fun, quality French classes to children between the ages of 4 to 12. I thoroughly enjoy teaching my mother tongue to children who are so receptive to foreign languages at such an early stage. I experience great satisfaction sharing my culture with them; it is so rewarding to observe their faces light up to French songs and games, or crinkle to French culture habits (thinking about French culinary snails of course!) Sharing the love and passion I have for my mother tongue is such an honour and privilege.

After the outbreak of Covid-19, the World had no choice but to adapt to unprecedented times. I decided to launch a website and offer my French classes online.

The children can enjoy my classes from the comfort and security of their homes while having the opportunity to make friends worldwide! I am very excited and thrilled to deliver my French lessons online and offering language learning awareness to families from the four corners of the World; empowering the children with a lifetime love and skill for languages!
