Improve your French Jane R. Février 2015


Feb 14, 2015 Genevi Guestbook
I’ve just returned from a fantastic week in Nice Genevieve! I went completely unprepared, hoping Genevieve would have some ideas to help me improve my French. And she did! Although officially “classes” started after breakfast, practicing French started from the moment we said “Bon jour!” every morning and lasted until we said “Bonne nuit.” What’s more, Geneviève showed me some excellent apps I had no idea existed, so now I can listen to the news in French at home – still quite a challenge for me! After [...]

Study French in France Pam S – Janvier 2015-


Jan 29, 2015 Genevi Guestbook
What a week! My stay with Genevieve was a great adventure and so much fun. I had always wanted to study French in France, with a goal of overcoming my timidity and reticence in speaking. Genevieve’s course was perfect for me because we could focus on conversation instead of grammar (although I needed some help here, naturellement!). We spoke French all day long, starting with a discussion of current events each morning. Genevieve was always exceptionally patient with me and encouraging. Of course, [...]

Get to the next level in French Janet S. Janvier 2015


Jan 27, 2015 Genevi Guestbook
I have had a great time with Geneviève . She is such a good teacher. When I got stuck on a grammar point she was very patient and would explain until I understood. I was only with her for 4 days but she immediately  identified areas that I needed to work on and by the end of the week I was far more confident. With Geneviève’s encouragement I have realised that I can get to the next level and will definitely be booking another stay with her. Nice is a lovely town, easy to get around, with lots of things [...]

Courtney F . November 2014


Nov 30, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
I came to study with Genevieve after studying for some weeks at another school in France. I needed to ‘fine tune’ my understanding of the language and that is exactly what she provided. She quickly identified areas of weakness and we focused on those. The pieces of the language puzzle started to come together and for that I am grateful. The convenience of my accommodations added to the pleasure of my stay. Our outings together strengthened my sense of the culture and history of the area. In addition, [...]

Annika et Filip F – October 2014


Nov 15, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
Thank you for the time with you in Nice – one week for Annika and also a second one for Filip. Annika: When we came I must admit I was a bit affected by all the comments I had from colleagues – What, are you going on vacation to study French?? They didn`t say: Are you out of your mind; but the message was pretty clear. So I was wondering if we had made the right choice?) They were wrong and we were right. We both like to have something meaningful to do during vacation, and the balance between our morning [...]

Christian E – Septembre 2014


Oct 19, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
I studied with Genevieve for two weeks.  From the moment I arrived in France, she was very sweet. In the beginning, I couldn’t understand anything she said.  A longtime ago, I had studied for three years in high school in the US.  However, I forgot most of what I learned.  But Genevieve was very patient.  Each day, she taught a grammar lesson, provided practice exercises, and she chose some articles to read and discuss, that were related to my work and my interests.  She maintained a very comfortable [...]

Risa M – juillet 2014


Jul 21, 2014 Genevi Guestbook
The three days I spent in Nice were just incredible as I took an immersion course with Geneviève and I lived in her apartment. Notwithstanding that I have studied French for almost a year at a language school in Lyon and having also passed my C1 exam, the course with Geneviève still helped me a lot in putting into practice what I have learnt. We spoke a lot during these three days as we had breakfasts and dinners together, in addition to having a three- hour class each morning. It was my first time [...]

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 [...]
