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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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!
