Eliane – Linda review
Stayed in April 2019
I have just finished a two week French immersion with these objectives in mind: to speak French more fluently and to improve my listening skills, as well as to work on my grammar weaknesses and pronunciation.
Eliane works very hard to give her students a worthwhile immersion. She used a variety of teaching methods to make my lessons interesting and specific to my needs. I found Eliane to be very patient and she is very competent at what she does. It has to be the most efficient way for a student to progress and I am amazed and delighted with how far I have come in those two weeks.
I felt completely at ease with Eliane and Benjamin – they are both welcoming and kind and they showed me such warm hospitality.
I chose to stay in the studio in their garden – a lovely space and a very comfortable retreat at the end of the day. The door to the main house was always open and Eliane told me more than once to “fais comme chez toi”.
The lessons started with conversation over breakfast (at 9am) and continued shortly afterwards with a more structured lesson until noon. Then time for a break back at the studio until lunch was ready to be served.
Eliane is a great cook and I was treated to mouth-watering meals.
As well as the lessons there were excursions and outings and these gave me more opportunities to develop my French abilities.
It was a very positive experience for me, and I would definitely recommend an immersion with Eliane to anyone wishing to improve their French.
