Nathalie – Jessica review
Stayed in 2018
I decided to do an immersion week to improve the fluency of my spoken French, as well as my confidence.
I chose to stay with Nathalie as she wasn’t located too far from Paris, where I was staying, and the area looked beautiful.
I am so glad that I chose to stay with Nathalie! She was incredibly welcoming and friendly, and despite being fairly nervous, I felt at ease straight away. Her house and garden were lovely, she had two adorable cats, and it was really nice to have my own part of the house.
We did many excursions, such as visiting Fontainebleau castle, looking in vintage shops, going to the market, walks and bike rides through the countryside and visiting other villages.
Throughout these trips Nathalie and I discussed a broad range of topics, allowing me to pick up a lot of vocabulary and get better at explaining myself in French.
I was also invited to a dinner party and an annual party, where I met lots of other French people and got to practice French in a natural environment.
Overall, not only did Nathalie help me to gain confidence and make my French feel more natural, I also had a really fun, relaxing week in a beautiful part of France.
It was a really great experience and I’m thinking about coming back next year to do it again!.
