“I am a professional person who needed to learn french quickly to do my business in France. I have had 2 intensive courses with Gaëlle, and stayed at the excellent Belle Vallée, and, not only did my French improve by an incredible degree, but it was also a very enjoyable mini break both times.

I think it is nearly impossible to speak french quickly without this type of tuition .”

"I have just returned from a fabulous week in Normandy where I took an intensive course in French, staying in an exquisite country house. Gaelle Napoleon, a gifted teacher, taught us in depth formal French but we also had fun learning colourful French phrases in the local idiom.
Learning was reinforced with cultural talks and visits to local historical and architectural sites. We also tasted 20 year old calvados, local poire (pear cider) and bought local cheeses and French hens at the market."

“Having not spoken French for some years, I suddenly found that I needed to entertain some French guests, who spoke little English. I looked in France magazine for a short refresher course. There were many advertised, so I chose the nearest to England . What a lucky choice it was. Gaëlle Napoléon adapted her busy schedule to fit me in. She welcomed me warmly, has a sympathetic approach and quickly identified my weaknesses. Clear explanations followed, and reminders were written for me to take back to England with me. A very good teacher, it also helped that Gaëlle obviously enjoys her work. My confidence quickly returned, and after my short stay, I came away totally satisfied.”
