Bonjour, my name is Claudine. Welcome to my home! I live in Montbard a little city in Northern Burgundy, only an hour from Paris by TGV. The region offers a large variety of cultural sites or events and the only difficulty at times could be the selection. You will have a fully furnished apartment just for yourself and mine is upstairs. I have lived abroad for over 20 years (mainly in Asian countries) and have taught French for 30 years. I teach all levels of French, from beginner to professional. I prefer speaking French all the time with my students but can easily explain tricky points in your language if necessary or simply switch whenever you feel tired by too much concentration! An immersion program is quite demanding but should remain a pleasant experience for you, and me!

Meet Claudine - your French tutor, language buddy & host In France

I live alone in an old stone house (XVIIth century) but have many friends. I love Montbard because it is small and very close to nature. Even though I love cats and dogs, I have chosen to have none because some of my students have allergy to pets' hair.

On my days off, I like hiking, traveling, art in general (cinema, contemporary dance, painting, concert, etc.) and enjoying the company of people.

My French immersion program is aimed at providing opportunities to any student (from beginner to advance level) to improve their French language but also understanding the French culture and its people. Apart from the morning lessons, we will spend time together and with my friends and you will get many chances to go out and talk naturally in various situations. Focus is on oral understanding and expression for you to communicate with French speakers. A 2 or 3-week session will produce great results in your language learning but a week-stay is also possible. Private courses are the best way to boost your self-confidence and to improve your communication skills and develop the best of what you already know.

If the morning class is somehow formal (stress given to the pronunciation and grammar whenever it is necessary), the rest of the day -break in the morning, lunch or afternoon visit- is perfect to practice, to share, and to relax. I will not correct you all the time because the natural flow of your speech and your ideas is also very important to respect. When meeting my friends however, I will not correct you at all. The aim is to have a normal and natural conversation with French people.

Only an hour by TGV from Paris, Montbard is nested in a valley and surrounded by forests and rivers in Northern Burgundy. Dijon, the capital city of Burgundy and Beaune are also close and easy to access by train. There are many medieval villages and châteaux to visit around the town.

Montbard itself offers everything we need: restaurants, a movie theatre, a large swimming pool, medical services and a few supermarkets. My house is conveniently located in the old part of the town and only a few steps from a bakery shop, a nice bookstore, restaurants, etc. Within about 15 minutes, we can walk to the train station. For our afternoon visit, I will take you by car to any place around Montbard.
