The staff were fantastic, and paid particular attention to my request for emphasis on spoken rather than written French. They were charming, helpful and delightful 'professeurs'.
I loved every moment of my course, and gained in confidence every day.
My host family was perfect, one was a retired English teacher, the other a retired French teacher. They never used their knowledge to interfere with my spoken French.
I gained confidence enormously. I am now quite comfortable conversing with strangers on almost any subject, although I know I do make mistakes.
