Video Testimonial from Bill, US Fish & Wildlife - Government Client
"Elodie is a great French teacher who employs a refreshingly non traditional way of tutoring. Whereas in a traditional class you might have to learn basic grammar rules or phrases or spend all your time conjugating verbs, with Elodie you just start speaking, she asks you questions, and you just attempt to have an entire conversation in French for an hour. When you make a mistake she will correct you and over the course of the lesson you will learn better ways to say phrases and learn new words and phrases as well. I find this to be far more useful in terms of increasing comfort with speaking than other French lessons I've had in the past, where I've just ended up memorizing flashcards with different verb conjugations. With Elodie I leave a lesson feeling like I am more comfortable conversing in French and that I could actually have a conversation with someone else about daily routines, what's going on in my life, or other situations that actually arise in real life, rather than learning basic phrases that aren't useful in actual conversation. I have very much enjoyed my lessons with her and feel much more comfortable with basic conversational French as a result!" Merri, Student
"I have worked with Elodie for over a year now and can say with absolute confidence that my French has improved dramatically while working with her. The best part is that French class with Elodie doesn't really seem like "class" at all. We spend two hours a week discussing a wide range of topics, and Elodie always keeps it fun and interesting with new topics to discuss. She teaches me new words and phrases and corrects my French when needed so that I can sound as close to truly French as possible! I'd highly recommend Elodie (and have!) to any of my friends or colleagues". Catherine, US government
"I spent a year in conversational French classes with Elodie. She has a wonderful style, encouraging, gently correcting and a lovely balance of real conversation, a give and take of ideas and stories of the moment. Whether it's news related or the latest film release, her teaching style is one of inclusion and upbeat helpful progression. I would recommend French classes with Elodie for anyone beginner or advanced." Caroline, Yoga teacher
"I found Elodie through the local French Meetup and at that time, I was looking for a new Tutor because my former Tutor was moving to Florida. I always enjoy my "Conversation Lessons" with her because she lets me talk freely and when I make a mistake, whether in grammar or pronunciation she very quickly corrects me. I learn currently used words and expressions that don't appear in any of my French text books. The lessons are always fun because Elodie is an interesting person with a good sense of humor. Take a lesson with her and formulate your own opinion. It will be fun." John, Retired
"I had studied French in college and found that I had forgotten quite a bit of what I learned because I no longer practiced it. I was looking for a way to stop that trend, and I found Elodie. I am so happy that I found her! I thorough enjoyed my classes with her - she is very easy to talk to no matter the topic, and she really helped me build confidence and remember that vocabulary and grammar I had once learned. I highly recommend Elodie's classes!! It's a great investment in yourself, and the bonus is that you get to know Elodie as well!" Cheryl, US government
