From the moment I sat in the plane Moscow Nice, I thought, “My God, but what did I have invented How am I going to understand my teacher when I’m not talking french well? But all my fears disappeared as soon as I met Geneviève  at the airport. I lived with her for two weeks in September 2012. It has been a wonderful time! Her apartment is spacious and bright. When I arrived in my room, I opened the window and I admired the view, the sun, the tiled roofs, small mountains and the birds singing. It was superb. She  showed me the rest of the apartment and the terrace where we ate all our meals. Every [...]

I annoyed Geneviève for three weeks , then again for another two while I learnt with her. I had an unforgettable time with her ( after which, Geneviève had to take a year’s holiday). I had originally planned to come for just three weeks , but upon discovering these being a big chess tournament I stayed for another two, through not wih Geneviève. For the first three weeks , I had two hours of the courses each daytexts, vocab,grammar. I think I perfect my French ! When Geneviève speaks French , you understand every word. My grand mother who didn’t know a word of French , began to understand her ( sometimes [...]

When I just arrived at Geneviève’s apartment in Nice, I was very nervous and apprehensive at the idea of staying two weeks in Nice to learn French. But right away, Geneviève made me feel very comfortable at home. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and I was free to go where ever I wanted, as long I took the Keys.!!!! During my stay with her, I did the course for three hours every morning, some days we went to very nice places and always with lots of things to do and see. Also I met a lot of nice people, which helped me a lot gaining confidence to speak French all the times with everybody. And the food, [...]

Mar 21, 2013 Genevi Guestbook
I had private french lessons for  4 weeks with Geneviève . I needed to learn the French language for my work. When I arrived in Nice, I couldn’t speak any French. I knew ONLY “Hello, How are you?, My name is Koji and I am Japanese. “Thanks to her  courses and conversation , I got the ability of communication quickly. I was really proud when I could communicate in a restaurant, a bakery and market. As my biggest goal was to have the ability of basic communication, the individual lesson  with Geneviève was the best choice for me. She corrected my  errors  my granmar and pronunciation. I improve  so [...]

My name is Brenda. I live in San Diego, CA. I spent two weeks with Geneviève in the autumn of 2012 and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Geneviève is an excellent teacher as well as a gracious host and wonderful cook. Geneviève challenged me and encouraged me and gave me the tools I needed to improve my French proficiency. The instruction I received was well-tailored to the areas in which I needed improvement. Geneviève has a way of building one’s confidence as she builds one’s knowledge. In addition to studying the language it was such a pleasure to be immersed in the French way of [...]
