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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
I’ve just returned from a fantastic week in Nice Genevieve! I went completely unprepared, hoping Genevieve would have some ideas to help me improve my French. And she did!
What a week! My stay with Genevieve was a great adventure and so much fun. I had always wanted to study French in France, with a goal of overcoming my timidity and reticence in speaking.
I have had a great time with Geneviève . She is such a good teacher. When I got stuck on a grammar point she was very patient and would explain until I understood.
I was only with her for 4 days but she immediately identified areas that I needed to work on and by the end of the week I was far more confident.
Thank you for the time with you in Nice – one week for Annika and also a second one for Filip.
Annika: When we came I must admit I was a bit affected by all the comments I had from colleagues – What, are you going on vacation to study French?? They didn`t say: Are you out of your mind; but the message was pretty clear. So I was wondering if we had made the right choice?)
