I annoyed Geneviève for three weeks , then again for another two while I learnt with her. I had an unforgettable time with her ( after which, Geneviève had to take a year’s holiday). I had originally planned to come for just three weeks , but upon discovering these being a big chess tournament I stayed for another two, through not wih Geneviève. For the first three weeks , I had two hours of the courses each daytexts, vocab,grammar. I think I perfect my French ! When Geneviève speaks French , you understand [...]

When I just arrived at Geneviève’s apartment in Nice, I was very nervous and apprehensive at the idea of staying two weeks in Nice to learn French. But right away, Geneviève made me feel very comfortable at home. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and I was free to go where ever I wanted, as long I took the Keys.!!!! During my stay with her, I did the course for three hours every morning, some days we went to very nice places and always with lots of things to do and see. Also I met a lot of nice people, [...]

I had private french lessons for  4 weeks with Geneviève . I needed to learn the French language for my work. When I arrived in Nice, I couldn’t speak any French. I knew ONLY “Hello, How are you?, My name is Koji and I am Japanese. “Thanks to her  courses and conversation , I got the ability of communication quickly. I was really proud when I could communicate in a restaurant, a bakery and market. As my biggest goal was to have the ability of basic communication, the individual lesson  with Geneviève [...]

My name is Brenda. I live in San Diego, CA. I spent two weeks with Geneviève in the autumn of 2012 and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Geneviève is an excellent teacher as well as a gracious host and wonderful cook. Geneviève challenged me and encouraged me and gave me the tools I needed to improve my French proficiency. The instruction I received was well-tailored to the areas in which I needed improvement. Geneviève has a way of building one’s confidence as she builds one’s knowledge. [...]

Thank you so much for your patience and great teaching abilities. I really had a great time learning from you. I learned so much!! Each day was a new topic, but I understood each new topic as we went along so it was very fulfilling for me. My head was full! I was not sure what to expect when I started out on my journey, but it was much more than I had hoped for. The one on one lessons are irreplaceable with other forms of learning. It was a great way to reacquaint myself with French and move quickly [...]

I spent 3 weeks learning French with Geneviève and I could not be more satisfied with the progress that I made. At first French seemed like a very complicated language but due to Geneviève’s comprehensive and clear lessons, I was able to communicate very soon. I was really pleased with Genviève’s patience in the lessons. During the week I would have 3 hours of individual French lessons in the morning, afterwards I was free to do what I liked. I felt right at home in Genviève’s nice apartment which [...]

I needed to brush up my French for work and social reasons but had limited amount of time (one week). I knew I wanted to revise the grammar, improve my fluency, be able to visit Nice and surroundings, appreciate French cuisine and meeting the locals. Well, you would argue a bit too much to squeeze in a week? Not at all! With the help of Genevieve, I managed to reconcile my needs and my interests at the same time. I couldn’t have had a better week! Genevieve has been super flexible in her teaching approach, [...]
