I moved to France, I could just about order a coffee and discuss the
weather. Now I have the confidence to have a conversation about
politics, the state of the economy, or even the size of my wood stack
all thanks to Normandy French Tuition.”

lesson in Flers]
Gaelle Napoléon has been my French teacher for the last 10
months on a
weekly basis during this period. On starting I could only remember six
words in French from my old school lessons aged 12yrs, which is an
extremely long time ago. My progress has been due to a one to one
lesson where there is the ability to go at my own pace and
understanding. Gaelle shows such empathy when I feel that I cannot do
it and manages to persuade you otherwise and give you the spree you
need to continue. I am now able to understand what those
around me are saying and can translate what is written which makes such
a difference to living here.”
Saint Christophe de Chaulieu, 61 [Private lesson in Flers]
“Gaelle is a very
approachable and competent tutor, and we are gaining confidence in our
spoken French with every lesson.
It is brilliant finding out the correct French expressions for everyday
use from someone who uses them everyday !”
