My French immersion in Nice by Pamela march 2017


I recently spent a fantastic week with Genevieve in Nice. My level of french is Advanced and my aim was to prepare for the DELF B2 exam while, of course, speaking as much french as possible. Both these aims were amply fulfilled by Gevevieve with great good humour and attention to detail. The mornings started with chat over breakfast followed by an exploration of current affairs in France and elsewhere using an excellent website which I have continued to use in the UK. This was followed by grammar exercises and explanations which were really helpful in finding the “holes” in my grammar knowledge. [...]

French immersion in Nice by Raishma- Feb 2017


I’m a typical Brit in that I studied French at secondary school for five years and subsequently parked it to one side once I finished school and have never used it since. I had always regretted not pursuing the language further in some way, shape or form and it was only through personal and professional goals I set in January 2017 that I resolved to become fluent in French once and for all. I was incredibly fortunate to find a two week slot with Geneviève at the last minute and I flew to Nice in trepidation and excitement at what lay ahead over the next two weeks. I should have feared not. From the [...]

Immersion for a week with a native speaker! Liz and Dot Sept 2016


Oct 15, 2016 Genevi Guestbook
My friend and I have just returned from spending a wonderful week in Nice with Geneviève. For the last year Dot and I have been meeting once a week for an hour to practice our French. Whilst this has been good we felt we needed a new impetus in order to take a leap forwards. We found Genevieve online and decided it was exactly what we needed; complete immersion for a week with a native speaker! Geneviève is the perfect host, from meeting us at the airport even though her car had broken down and she had to enlist her sisters help, to serving us delicious food each day and answering all our touristy [...]

Immersive course in Nice – Joie C , May 2016


May 18, 2016 Genevi Guestbook
I have spent a week with Geneviève for an immersive course in French. It was very helpful towards improving my grasp of the language. I requested help particularly with my speaking and comprehension skills, and I really appreciate how well she tailored the course to my needs. She is an excellent instructor and swiftly helped me grasp certain structural aspects of the language that I had been struggling with for a while. There are set hours of instruction, and we covered a lot of ground each day. She also sets homework, which provides the opportunity to revise and apply the lessons learnt during the [...]

A week learning French – Holly D April 2016


Apr 11, 2016 Genevi Guestbook
Bonjour from Texas! I have just returned from a week in Nice studying with Genevieve and I can’t say enough good things about my stay. Firstly, the instruction was top-notch. Each day she assessed my needs and tailored the day’s lesson to me. At the end of the week, she gave me suggestions of on-line and print resources that would help me on my road to fluency. Next, let me speak of the accommodations. Her centrally located and lovely apartment suited my needs “to a tee.” The light-filled bedroom overlooked the rooftops of Nice. The bathroom was modern and efficient. And I had access to her living [...]
