Derek Ferguson had his “Remington moment” in 2011 (he liked Roaming Schoolhouse so much I bought the company). The founder was moving back to Ireland and he couldn’t let this great service disappear. “It was definitely my best ever career move, but not what I would have foreseen after Monsieur Hulot, Marcel Pagnol and the Tour de France convinced me that I loved France”. Derek moved here in 1992, after an MA in French, as a trainee accountant. After 10 years, he realised that he preferred people to numbers and started teaching, setting up Schwa in 2007.
