It has been a pleasure learning to speak French with Emilie. She is patient, understanding and makes learning fun and interactive. We started off at a basic level and then built up the vocabulary and grammar according to my ability. Having lessons with Emilie, taught me how 'real French people' speak rather than how the books/CD's teach you. I now have more confidence to speak French, thanks to Emilie. Merci beaucoup Emilie

Je suis très content d’avoir pris des cours d’anglais avec Émilie qui m’a beaucoup appris et fait arriver à un niveau d’anglais assez élevé pour pouvoir faire la section européenne anglais durant 5 ans mais surtout qui m’a permis de me débrouiller à l’étranger grâce à cette magnifique langue qu’est l’anglais ( ps : j’espère qu’il n’y a pas trop de faute parce que niveau français c’est moins bon )

My Daugher has been taking French Classes with Emilie for the past 2 years and it has been so successful in so many ways .Listening and talking with a fluent French speaker is such a bonus as well as the classes . Emilie takes into account what the students strenghts and weakens are so quickly and my daughter really looks forward to her weekly class.I would highly recommend these classes as we are reaping the benefits .

    We have had the pleasure of weekly lessons with Emilie for the past year. Our proficiency with French has improved dramatically thanks to Emilie’s customized approach, which she adapts to each of our levels. Her patience, expertise and kindness has made the lessons both effective and fun!

    I arrived in France with no clue about the French language apart form the basic bonjour etc. I started with Emilie about 18 months ago as it was important to me to understand the language and to have the ability to comminicate on vartious levels when visiting building depots, banks, garages, shops etc.
    I was never any good at languages but I must say that, with Emilies great help, I am now able to do so much. She adapts each lesson to suit my needs and is by far the best teacher I have had.
    Her casual approach makes you feel comfortable and it brings joy to what would normally be a daunting task.
    In fact, I have already recommended Emilie to other people and they all say the same "Emilie is great" :-)

    Emilie is an excellent teacher!! My daughter Eider has been doing online French lessons for more than 6 month and it has been a great experience. Emilie is a very patient (which anyone that takes a language needs) and it's very comfortable to practice conversations, which is also a huge plus.. Her lessons were engaging, useful and she was always encouraging Eider to try. Eider has improved her French level so much!
    I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning/improving French.

    Learning French with Emilie has been a pleasure. Having never learned French in school, I was a true beginner and her lessons have helped me continue to develop my language skills. From her practical lesson plan to the start of the class everyday life conversations in French, I feel like I'm really starting to grasp the basics that build into fluency and I couldn't recommend her enough! Thanks so much for your help, Emilie!

    I had studied French in high school (more than 15 years ago!) and did not continue at University. I started doing classes with Amanda a few months ago and it has been amazing how quickly I have progressed and got back my French from a corner of my mind. She has been great and able to adapt the class to my requirements, always making it fun to follow. I have been able both to practice oral French and write. Now I feel very confident about my French and want to try to take an exam of an official certification like the Alliance Française. Thank you so much Amanda!

    Emilie is so patient and makes french easy to understand. Which in turn makes you want to learn the language even more. The one to one skype lesson is much better than a classroom and you become more confident with each passing class.Thanks for making studying a language fun and easy. Merci Beaucoup : )

    Learning through Skype is no different than in a classroom; one on one.
    I have had weekly sessions with Emilie for the past 6 months and attained a much higher level of fluency than I would have expected at this stage. Emilie's professionalism and patience make learning enjoyable and thorough experience.
    Merci beaucoup Emilie...

    Emilie has been teaching me French once a week for around 5 months now over Skype. I had never spoken a word of French before taking these lessons. Progress has been very good and I am really enjoying learning the language. In this time I feel comfortable reading and having short conversations en français! Emilie is a fantastic teacher who makes learning French a fun activity and seems to have great success with her students. Merci beaucoup!

    When we moved here in 2008 we all had individual lessons from first Amanda and then Emilie including our 6 year old son who couldn't speak a word of French on day one. We now just have a lesson from Emilie by Skype for our son once a week to augment his school work as his knowledge of French far exceeds ours. We consider these excellent lessons a vital (and very enjoyable) part of trying to integrate into life here as we're very much a working family who happen to live in France and need more than tourist French.
    Highly Recommended - Thank you.

    My company has many French customers and I thought it was important that I could communicate better. I started with a basic level having studied in school 10-12 years ago, but I have worked with Emilie once a week through Skype for about a year and I feel like I am making great progress.
    A couple of months ago I made a presentation to a customer in French.
    Thank you for all your help.

    Ivor and I have enjoyed French lessons with Amanda during our five month stay in the Dordogne from May until October 2013. We are already looking forward to a continuation during the summer of 2014. We were very pleased with the way in which Amanda dealt with the different levels of mastery of my husband and me, and also with her positive guidance and pleasant sense of humour. She speaks a beautiful French. We could understand her very easily. We went for two hours at a time, once a week and noticed a big improvement in our ability to speak and listen. We recommend this lovely school with great confidence. Ivor and Linda Korck, Constantia, Cape Town

Dear Amanda
After buying a house in the Dordogne for holiday visits, we were very lucky to find you to teach us conversational french.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our lessons with you. They were the perfect balance of conversation and theory - and you easily handled our different levels of french knowledge in our joint sessions. We will definitely take more lessons with you when we are able to spend more time in the Dordogne.

Dear Emilie

As an older person learning a new language is not easy but you have helped me a great deal. Your lessons have been really good as well as enjoyable and I also appreciate your patience.
Best regards Peter

Hi Emilie,
It’s great to hear from you, I am still working on my French here in Ireland but it doesn’t compare to living in France and studying with you. Many thanks for helping me to progress with confidence, I am now in a Level 2 class.
I am very impressed!



17. Jill Burke - 2011-02-19 18:27:25

Amanda, I cannot thank you enough or rate you highly enough. I had no confidence in speaking French but you were so patient and kind that i managed to overcome my shyness. Your lessons were always interesting and relevant and I hope to resume my lessons very soon. Best wishes, Jill


16. Tony Duignan - 2010-10-22 07:38:47

Dear Amamda, I am adding to a long list of excellent references which you have thoroughly deserved. Your teaching style encourages and allows students to progress quickly. Your lessons are interesting and varied which quiyte suits my style. Thank you for your patience with me and I will continue to recommend you or Emile to anyone who would ask did I know of a good French. Good, you are wonderful. Merci beacoup, Tony.


15. Terri Bowen - 2010-10-21 16:05:44

Thank you Emilie for your help, support and guidance. The one-to-one lessons really work for me and I really appreciate the personal lesson planning. I have found a new enthusiasm and enjoyment in learning the language and that only comes from excellent teaching skills. I find myself looking forward to homework and my next class - so thank you, thank you.


14. - 2010-10-20 18:40:08

Dear Amanda,
I was given your name on a flight to the UK, and it was one of the best contacts I have ever received.
Your lessons have given me so much confidence and enjoyment; not only are you a patient and thoughful teacher, you really understand how language works.
You also gave my daughter, Ella, a flying start at St Joseph in Sarlat, and she is now excelling in French.
Our family, including dogs, are all very fond of you and consider you a Great Friend!
We all wish you the very best for the future, and look forward to seeing you again, soon.

Bonjour les filles
merci pour les cours d’anglais, qui me servent actuellement à New York. Grâce à toi Emilie,ma vie de tout les jours est plus facile. Thank You
Votre site est superbe !!!!

10. Carolyn Cox - 2010-09-27 07:45:57

I moved to the Dordogne 4 years ago with twin boys aged 13. Amanda was recommended to me to help them learn French properly and she tailored the lessons to their needs. She established an excellent rapport with them, (not easy with teenage boys!) and aided them to achieving Brevet with "assez-bien". They are now at Lycee studying for a Bac S and are well settled into the French education system. Amanda was an essential part of their assimilation, I would recommend her to anyone and have done so to English friends living in the area. Thankyou Amanda!
