Testimonials

I had been looking for an immersion programm for a long time.  Finally, I fund my way to Roquebrussanne. What a wonderful experience for me. Géraldine and her lovely family took good care of me. I quicly became a member of the family. Géraldine was patient and very supportive in bringing me to a new level of french. The whole family helped me.  During my stay, I had precious experiences and I learned a lot about French culture and the art of living. It's an unforgettable time for me. Thank you Géraldine.   Andreas, Allemagne, 2020

I was already residing in France and had a reasonable level of French proficiency. However, my progress was hitting plateau as I had no apparent objectives but to be able to communicate better in French. In the end, I decided to take DALF C1 exam in order to have a bit more structure in my learning. Although it was a last-minute decision, my host teacher, Geraldine had supported me and dedicated so much of her time and shared with me her wealth of knowledge. (and I did pass my C1 exam!).  Although I was already living locally, I actually had experienced the French culture and enjoyed the local nature and cultural activities a lot more than what I had experience in the entire year! Being introduced to the teacher’s social community, participating in outdoor activities or cultural activities together made my three-week stay a lot richer than any other language school programs or homestay experiences I’ve ever had. I have learned English, German and French in my life, and I must say that learning languages may not require home stay experience. However, I must emphasize the importance of immersing oneself in the local life in order to really understand the language at deeper level. This would accelerate the linguistic progress dramatically, especially at advanced level.   Emiri, Japon, 2020

J'ai passé un séjour parfait. Géraldine et sa famille étaient super ! Naomi, Japon, 2021

J'ai eu une très bonne expérience chez Géraldine. Vous ne trouverez pas de meilleur professeur qu'elle. Elle est très ouverte, parle clairement, lentement et prend le temps de tout expliquer. J'étais une vraie débutante mais après une semaine, j'ai remarqué que je m'étais beaucoup améliorée. La maison est charmante, la chambre super confortable et les repas sont délicieux. La famille, Fred et les garçons sont très sympas aussi. Récemment, Géraldine m'a aidé à passer mon examen DELF B1 en décembre 2021 avec les cours de zoom. Honnêtement, c'est un très bon professeur que je recommande sans réserve. Barry, Irlande, 2021

My stay with Geraldine at her home in southeastern France was truly amazing. While there I was warmly welcomed and treated like a member of the family. Geraldine prepared an itinerary with my input that took us to five towns and cities in the region to study art and architecture. I spoke French the entire time which took me to an entirely new level in French comprehension and conversation. I was very pleased with the progress I made as an intermediate French speaker. Geraldine’s home is lovely and I had a large bedroom with a very comfortable bed. In addition, she is an outstanding cook, preparing meals with fresh local ingredients. Highly recommended for an unforgettable experience! Victoria, Etats-Unis, 2022

Thank you, Geraldine, for a wonderful week in Provence. The excellent lessons, lovely meals, and amazing excursions all resulted in a French experience far beyond my expectations. I’m looking forward to returning next year. Jayne, Canada, 2022

I spent a week with Géraldine aiming to improve my French conversation, but I feel that I gained much more than this.   Speaking French all day improved my confidence and motivation.  Staying with Géraldine in her home in Provence meant that we talked about day-to-day things (food, family, weather, work), as well as French culture. There was a structured programme of activities organised in discussion with me and linked to my interests, but at the same time it felt informal and relaxed.

It helped to spend the immersion week in wonderful surroundings.  My stay in Géraldine’s traditional house in the centre of La Roquebrussanne, a lovely old village in the Var region of Provence, was very comfortable.   The bedroom was spacious and airy with its own bathroom.

I had been taking French courses in London for a while but I was a bit stuck and felt I needed something more intensive.  This week has been excellent for my French.  Géraldine assessed my level at the start and I felt that she was keeping things informal whilst at the same time noting specific issues with my grammar which we would discuss at the end of the day.   At the end of the week we discussed next steps for further developing my French.  I liked the pace and it was very personalised and sensitive to my needs.  I hope to do this immersive French course again next year.  I would highly recommend it.
