Joie C , May 2016


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 [...]

Holly D 1 week in April 2016


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 [...]

Gaby S, 2 weeks December 2015


I had the pleasure of staying with Genevieve for 2 weeks in December 2015.  A last-minute opportunity arose to stay with Genevieve when a cancellation provided an opening – how fortunate for me was that cancellation, as Genevieve is a very busy and sought-after teacher!  My French was very rusty with significant holes in my understanding and application of the language.  Genevieve quickly focused on my weaknesses and tailored her teaching to those areas.  Genevieve’s generosity as a teacher and a host is truly special.  The set teaching hours seemed to fly-by each day, so enjoyable were they, and [...]

Sep 20, 2015 Genevi Guestbook
I spent two fantastic weeks in August 2015 with Geneviève learning French. I was a little nervous before I arrived as to what it would be like, but Geneviève welcomed me into her home, and made me feel very comfortable. I enjoyed the daily routine which included a morning swim in the sea. Geneviève is a great host, and teacher. She helped, and encouraged me to develop my language skills, correcting my pronunciation, and improving my grasp of verb conjugation. At the start of the first week, I lacked the confidence to speak more than a few basic phrases, by the end of the two weeks I felt a lot more [...]

Sep 20, 2015 Genevi Guestbook
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 [...]
