She will share with you her teaching experience and her daily life.

YOUR HOME STAY FRENCH IMMERSION IN PROVENCE
Hello, my name is Geraldine. I am a schoolteacher with years of experience in teaching French as a foreign language to children and adults in France, South Africa, Kenya and Morocco. I am married to Frederic, an airline pilot. We have three grown children who no longer live with us. In Provence, I have decided to open my family home to students wishing to learn French by immersion, and to share my love of the French language and culture.
The dining room where the lessons take place is extended by a raised terrace which overlooks the river. As soon as the weather allows it, we’ll eat our meals on the terrace overlooking the river.
I make simple and tasty traditional French cuisine from fresh products that I buy from local producers–fruits and vegetables, goat and sheep cheeses, honey, olive oil etc., or from traders committed to healthy eating.
I have a discreet and independent cat.
I don’t smoke, but you may smoke outside on the terrace
LEARN FRENCH LANGUAGE
My 15 years teaching experience enables me to adapt my courses to your level and your needs (oral or written, comprehension and production; tourist or professional). My experience as a school teacher has taught me to teach groups at heterogeneous levels, and I will be happy to teach you if you come together as two people, whatever the level of each.
My lessons will be in French but I will be able to communicate in English if necessary. The French class will take place in the dining room which is the most convivial common space of the house.
Because the French love food, you will also enjoy
Discover amazing French sites, your teacher as your guide
During your leisure time, there are many activities to explore
Your stay is also discovering French culture while relaxing
As a former art historian, I worked for a network of monuments and museums in Provence for 10 years before becoming a teacher. Today, I like to discover and help you discover the heritage of my region. Also, I will be your guide to explore La Roquebrussanne, Saint-Maximin, Aix-en-Provence and Toulon, their heritage and their markets.
You will meet native speakers there, you will understand their culture a little more, and you will practice your French at the same time! If you are athletic, you will have the opportunity to practice many sports activities in an authentic setting: hiking, running, electric or non-electric mountain biking, golfing etc.
If you like shopping, I can organize a session in Aix-en-Provence to visit its many shops.
We can discuss your preferences, and establish a program tailored to your personal desires and needs.
