Chitra R – May 2014


May 21, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
I spent a week with Geneviève at her bright and lovely home. I studied French on weekday mornings and explored the region the rest of the time. Geneviève was recommended to me by a friend and she has all the qualities to which the testimonials attest. She is very professional, a good teacher who tries to understand what you need and to make the best use of your time. I must confess that I had moments of strong anxiety the day that I arrived in Nice. I asked myself how I could spend a week with a person [...]

May 11, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
This past April, I had the pleasure of meeting Genevieve and participating in her Learn French program. From the moment we met at the airport, I could sense her professionalism and attention to detail. I only spent a week with Genevieve, which was not enough! From the get go, she encouraged me to try to corrige my mistakes. She has a great ear, and promptly created lessons tailor made to my difficulties. While Genevieve is undoubtedly the best French teacher I have had, she is also delightful, charming [...]

Dec 3, 2013 Genevi Guestbook
En septembre 2013 j’ai passé deux semaines à Nice avec Genevieve. Au debut je pensais que ce serait trop court, mais c’était très satisfait. Pendant mon séjour, nous somme allées à la la plage, aux musées voir les expositions de Matisse , et parfois au cinéma le soir. Et puis , nous avons mangé tous les jours sur la terrasse qui a une belle vue. Je remercie Geneviève , c’était une expérience précieuse.

Dec 3, 2013 Genevi Guestbook
When searching for a French immersion course, I quickly choose Genevieve, partly because of the personality I sensed from her website and partly because I wanted to return to the French Riviera. During my two weeks in October 2013 studying with Genevieve, my hopes and expectations were met. Genevieve is a delightful, playful person and a competent teacher who tailored the morning classes to my level and needs. Another thing I appreciated was her good-natured response to my bringing her a cold that [...]

“I greatly enjoyed the private French lessons with Geneviève . She specifically designed an intensive three-week French course to help with my transition to Luxembourg, in pursuit of new job opportunities. The lessons were practical and focused on essential French vocabulary and grammar. Each lesson was carefully prepared and started with the revising of the previously learned material which greatly facilitated the learning process. I appreciated that Geneviève included some topics relevant for my [...]

From the moment I sat in the plane Moscow NIce, I thought, "My God, but what did I have invented How am I going to understand my teacher when I'm not talking french well?

When I arrived in my room, I opened the window and I admired the view, the sun, the tiled roofs, small mountains and the birds singing. It was [...]
