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 just one day, I knew THIS IS IT so I arranged immediately to come back. My entire stay simply couldn’t [...]

Pam S – Janvier 2015-


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, one week was not enough time for a complete transformation, but I made great progress. The course exceeded [...]

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 to see and do. I also felt very safe, which as a single traveller was very important. I stayed [...]

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 [...]
