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

About me, about us :

I am Christelle, also known as Madame Frenchy, and I have always had a passion for foreign cultures, intercultural exchange and meeting other people. Throughout my career, I’ve been lucky enough to have immersive experiences in the USA and Ireland, as well as a year in London with my 3 children in 2016. It was then that I realised that immersion was essential for a deeper understanding of the language and culture, thanks to sharing daily life with locals. After 18 years working in banking, I decided in 2016 to change my career path and focus on teaching French as a foreign language. I obtained my Master 2 FLE at the Université Catholique de l’Ouest in Angers, and then I started teaching French to students from very different cultures, ages and backgrounds with great pleasure. I've been working at the University's CIDEF, a French language learning centre, for 5 years now. We’re a family of 5. There’s my husband, Manu, who works in banking, and our 3 children: Amaury (19), who is currently in Barcelona perfecting his language skills, Clarence (15) and Victoire (9), both of whom go to school in Angers. We also have our lovely dog Vénus, who has been an integral part of our family and our happiness for many years now. Unfortunately, this is why we will not be able to take in your pet. We’re a family of sports enthusiasts and we also love music and singing, which I’m still actively involved in as part of a band with my older brother.

My teaching style :

My teaching style is shaped by your needs and your learning objective: Would you like to improve your oral skills to speak everyday or professional French? Would you like to discover French literature, improve your written skills or resolve grammatical misunderstandings? Anything is possible, because I'll work with you to identify your needs and organise your learning progress. From beginner to advanced level, I've been lucky enough to work with many students from a wide range of backgrounds and I'll do everything I can to meet your needs ;)

I loved my stay with Christelle, Madame Frenchy!! She is such a knowledgeable person and truly so caring. I felt instantly welcomed in her home by her family. She also loves teaching and she is always ready to explain something I don’t understand. It’s so cool to see how a French family lives, speaks and enjoys life together! I highly recommend!

John

Une maison et une famille tellement parfaite pour les étrangers ! Si vous voulez parler français, ils vous aideront sans doute; et si vous voulez parler anglais, ils ont toujours envie de pratiquer avec les anglophones. Les repas sont toujours délicieux et les conversations sont toujours vivantes. Je vous recommande cette B&B vivement !

There is not enough that I could say to thank and praise Christelle. I was the first foreign student that she graciously welcomed into her home with her family for an extended period of time back in 2018. My time with them is one that I will never forget and always look upon with cherished memories. The amount of care and intention that her and her family put towards me was one that was so above and beyond that I truly am at a loss for words. Looking back at all of the experiences through true immersion in France is truly unforgettable and without a doubt, a once in a lifetime experience. Christelle is such a kind and understanding person and it shows through everyone around her, even their dog Venus ^.^ This is something you can’t miss !
