The students below stayed at Marion’s former house (in the same region)
My french immersion homestay with Marion truly exceeded my expectations.
It was evident immediately that she is a very skilled and qualified teacher. She uses many different tools and techniques to help make learning a difficult language much more enjoyable. We would play word games as we walked through the vineyards of Beaujolais, and enjoy conversation (in french) while taking long walks by the river.
The trips to the open market on Tuesdays were fascinating for someone from a big city, and I loved that all the produce we ate was locally grown. A true highlight in my 2 week stay was an all day excursion to my new favorite city of Lyon, only about an hour away by car. Of course it always helps to have your own personal guide when you visit a new city.
My apartment was next to the home of Marion’s lovely mother, Nicole. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. I was surprised and impressed to learn that Marion and her very talented brother, Lambert, built this apartment themselves!
And at that time they were in the middle of construction of her own house which I see has been completed. It has incredible views of the countryside full of lush green meadows and rolling hills-perfect for biking! I can’t wait to stay there on my next visit, which I have already scheduled.
