My husband Chris and I spent a week improving our French with Marion in September 2021 near Ouroux in the beautiful rolling hills of Beaujolais. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Marion is delightful and a very gifted teacher. Our French is at different levels, but she successfully accommodated her teaching to meet our specific needs. My husband, who hadn’t studied any French since school, and was understandably nervous, was immediately at ease. Having studied the language on various apps during the long Covid lockdown in South Africa, I was thrilled to learn in an environment with someone who spoke clearly and de-mystified much of my Internet French. Our week wasn’t all study though. Our apartment was comfortable and had a beautiful view. Marion is a creative and enthusiastic cook and she and Melie shared their knowledge of French wine with us. In fact, one of the outings we chose was a visit to Chateau de Pizay, which enhanced our knowledge of wine as well as French. We have family in France and need to be able to understand and speak with them readily, so I know we will be back for another rewarding week with Marion.
