Isabelle L – Katherine review
Stayed in March 2019
In March I had a wonderful week in an immersion program with Isabelle.
In thinking about how to describe my stay, I realized that most of what I was thinking of saying has already been said by many others. That just goes to show what a consistently great experience Isabelle provides! She is a well-prepared, professional, patient, and gracious teacher and hostess.
Our lessons were developed specifically for my level and needs. Isabelle used a variety of materials including some DELF materials for the lessons. For me, that was perfect because it gave me a chance to experience what the DELF tests might be like.
Isabelle has a very pleasant, conveniently located apartment. The student room is bright and confortable with everything I needed, including a TV so I could get extra French listening practice. We had lots of time to chat with our three meals a day together and numerous outings. Isabelle’s son, Theotim, often joined us for lunch and dinner. The meals were healthy and delicious.
I especially enjoyed our outings which included beach walks, a visit to the Parc Ornithologique (I’m an avid birder) and coffee and lunch with Isabelle’s friends. Isabelle also invites students to her yoga classes. I would have loved to attend, but skipped those and the trip to the dunes because of having a cold.
I highly recommend an immersion stay with Isabelle if you want to improve your French and experience French family life.
