Courtney F . November 2014


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, I was free to wander on my own, visiting museums and adjacent towns and cities. My time with Genevieve [...]

Annika et Filip F – October 2014


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 lessons, dinners or lunches + the tours in Nice and the free time we had was perfect. For us [...]

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 [...]

Risa M – juillet 2014


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 in Nice and I visited the town during the afternoons. This was the best way of travelling in France [...]

Chitra R – May 2014


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 I did not know at all. Would we get along? What on earth would we talk about? But I need not have [...]
