April 2016 – Holly D- USA

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 room and (my favorite spot) her flower-filled terrace! She prepared two meals a day for us, usually breakfast and dinner, and she is a wonderful cook. I felt so pampered because I am a mom and am not used to being served meals without any prep or clean up on my part!

I spent my afternoons and evenings (after I completed my homework!) exploring Nice and the riviera. Genevieve took me on several excursions that fit my interests. We explored gardens, a chateau, and a perfumerie.

But, when people ask me “what was the favorite part of your trip?” I tell them it is the fact that I have a new friend! Genevieve is warm, funny, and utterly charming. I will return!
