Chantal – John review
Stayed in June 2019
If you are looking for a super French immersion program, look no further. Chantal offers the best.
First of all, the accommodations are outstanding. You will have a wonderful, clean, and private room with a private bathroom in a small cottage just adjacent to the house. It is nicely furnished and includes cable television and WI-Fi that works perfectly. Just outside is a swimming pool that is easily accessible and kept warm with a pool cover.
More importantly, however, is the personal attention that Chantal will give you. Her warm personality made me feel included, set me at ease, and made me feel as if I were part of the family. Mealtimes were especially important for this, very traditionally French, and I must add that Chantal and her mother Liliane are the bomb chefs!
In addition, Chantal encouraged me to run errands with her, go shopping, and she even took me to the nearby town for my dry-cleaning. She used every opportunity available to help me expand my French vocabulary and improve my grammar.
There are of course, the structured lessons as well. Chantal is an outstanding teacher with superb credentials. Her teaching methods and instructional materials are up to date, motivating, and effective. It is obvious that she has a lot of experience working with foreign students. She is positive, upbeat, and encouraging. I learned so much during the 10 days I spent with her and her family.
It was an incredible experience that I hope to repeat someday in the future.
