Eliane – Joanne review
Stayed in May 2019
I have just finished a wonderful Immersion week in Roye at Chez Éliane, Éliane and her partner Benjamin were very natural and welcoming from the start. We had a lovely dinner (she is great cook!) and relaxed first evening getting to know each other. I had wanted to do a French Immersion Course for work and to improve my conversational skills. Prior to my arrival, Éliane had asked me questions to gauge what I wanted to achieve from the course, as well as for work I requested meeting more French people in a social setting. She kindly organised a dinner party with her friends to attend so I could join in, a fun evening ensued in a welcoming French atmosphere.
For me; the morning lessons, walks and afternoon excursions were a great combination. We spent one afternoon, at my request visiting the Somme region historical War Memorials which was very interesting. I also had the pleasure of meeting Éliane’s grandmother, mother Chantal and her student Stephan who joined us with Benjamin for lunch one day, after lunch some of us visited the magnificent Cathedral of Amiens and strolled around the city.
I really feel Éliane put a lot of effort into making sure I got the best out of my time spent with her in her home, from a learning perspective but also to feeling at home. The studio in the garden is spacious, clean and very comfortable for any visitor staying, I am sure if I needed anything else then Éliane would have done her best to provide it for me. I highly recommend Éliane for an informative, fun and interesting way to improve your French language capabilities.
