Schirley B – April 2015


Geneviève is an excellent teacher and hostess.  She adapted very well to my level of french. Here is a bright, capable lady that takes charge.  I thought that three hours a day might be too much, but it wasn’t.  The days are flexible, we even went by train to Monte Carlo for a day trip.  Most of the time she spoke in french, unless I made a funny face because I didn’t understand her. , Nice is beautiful, I would love to live there.  There’s always people outside.Their growing season is about nine months, so all the fruits and vegetables are ripe. The meals had a lot of variety. I would greatly recommend [...]

Bela V – March 2015


I stayed with Geneviève for one week in March 2015. The class far surpassed my expectations. Geneviève is a wonderful teacher. She was encouraging, patient, and was very quickly able to assess my ability, and tailor the course to match my needs. In addition to being an excellent teacher, Geneviève is a warm, kind, fun (& funny!) person. In no time at all, I felt at home with her – and by the time I left, it was as though I was saying “à bientôt” to a friend! Geneviève, merci pour votre temps, votre patience, et votre amitié! J’ espère qu’un jour,  je peux continuer mes leçons avec vous!

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 [...]
