Thinking in French Patricia F June 2015
I tried to study with Genevieve in 2014 but she was fully booked. Something told me to book for 2015 while I had a chance. This was one of the best decisions I have made in a long while.
First and foremost, she is an outstanding teacher. Her communications skills are extremely good. There were times when I just wasn’t understanding and she patiently rephrased and worked with me until I did. Within two days I found myself thinking in French and totally able to communicate with people that I came in contact with during the course of the day. My self confidence soared and I enjoyed my interaction with everyone. She inspired me to do well and was responsible for my new found ability.
Staying in Genevieve’s home was great. Her apartment is in easy walking distance of the ocean, the markets, and the museums. She is a great cook and has a fantastic sense of humour, both of which I appreciate greatly. She was also kind and helpful when I had to change plans due to a sudden family crisis in the UK.
My two weeks of study with Genevieve were hard work, worthwhile, and lots of fun. This was definitely a five star experience.
