Earlier this month I stayed in Paris for a week in an air BnB with my husband ,in the lovely hip and happening suburb of Batignolles in 17th arrondissement.
My objective was to improve my confidence and fluency when speaking French.while living like a Parisienne.I was lucky enough to find Françoise as my teacher, I was able to visit her at her apartment for French lessons on three mornings and for two mornings we went on excursions to the areas of Montmartre and the Marais.
Françoise is a very experienced teacher, so very quickly she was able to see my weaknesses and focus on improving those areas.The lessons where relaxed and fun, but at the same time I felt I was challenged and so gained confidence.
Françoise has lived in Paris for many years so the excursions to the Marais and Montmartre where extremely interesting and she took me to all the places that the average tourist would never find, Throughout the excursion we chatted in French in a relaxed natural fashion.
At an intermediate B1 level I think it is hard to find the right French course and the right teacher, that is why the French immersion with Françoise was so perfect because it was tailored to my needs.
If you are looking to improve your French I would highly recommend an immersion in Batignolles with Françoise.
