Raymonde – Edward & Shirley review
Stayed in April 2019
We had a very enjoyable stay with Raymonde and Michel. Lots of speaking French and good conversation, especially at dinner, which included Swiss wines.
Raymonde’s teaching was fun and profitable, using role-playing and other exercises in listening and comprehension. Also, she was very flexible and modified the day’s visit to suit my preferred method of learning French and to fit our schedule for meals and excursions (only one of us speaks some French).
Our trips to a lovely arboretum (with an interesting museum about traditional Swiss woodworking and carpentry) and to Lausanne, where we went to a super crêperie, were fun and educational as well as great for speaking French. The location near both Lausanne and Geneva allows visits to cities, and the smaller towns close by such as Rolle and Nyon were great too. It’s a beautiful setting with the Jura mountains on one side and Lake Léman on the other.
Overall the visit with Raymonde is a great way to improve your French and to learn about Switzerland. The accommodations were super with a bright spacious room and private bathroom.
