Christian E – Septembre 2014
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 environment, and the studio, that she rented to me, was perfect: very close to her house, and also a short walk to the beach, fifteen minutes to Old Nice, and a few minutes to the stores. Typically, she cooked more food than I could eat! In two weeks, I learned a great deal of grammar, a lot of vocabulary, and increased my comprehension considerably. One day, in a restaurant, a French woman even asked me if I was Swiss, because she said that I spoke French very well. A huge compliment! I really enjoyed my stay in Nice… I only wish I could have stayed longer.
