Don’t take my word for it, read below what other people think!

Since my wife started to attend Delphine’s French Clubs, she got so much more confident! When we go to France she is no longer asking me to talk to people, she chats with everyone!

Dear Delphine,

I think you’re doing an excellent job.  People can learn in a relaxed and friendly environment and I think it is a very positive experience.

A very positive experience

I really enjoy coming to Delphine’s French Club, it is more fun than an evening at the Pub with my mates!

Christine

A positive attitude

I enjoy the club and its relaxed manner, which owes a lot to you, Delphine. It is nice to be where you do not feel anxious about making mistakes and talking about a range of topics. In the past I have rather avoided French lessons for a worry about things not being totally correct in terms of grammar etc. I feel reasonably confident about trying to speak French and in France I do not worry if I make a few mistakes and I feel thankfully that is the same with our club. Also at the Club I feel we are broadly of similar ability so no one feels out of place. I have a reasonably good memory for vocabulary which helps and perhaps what I need to do more is to work on the verbs and the different tenses as often I cheat by operating largely in the present tense!! But I enjoy myself!

I enjoy myself!

The Club provides an encouraging, comfortable environment in which to practise speaking French without embarrassment or awkwardness, which means you try more even when you’re not quite sure. You make it into an enjoyable, fun meeting with lots of laughter (in a good way!).

You have renewed my enthusiasm to improve my french

I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday afternoon chatting in French with Delphine looking at family photos. I still find it fun and satisfying to learn French even at a retired age. I thoroughly recommend Delphine very highly.

Delphine is a positive and imaginative teacher. It’s been great fun improving our French and we thoroughly recommend her.

Merci beaucoup, Delphine!

Positive and imaginative

Delphine is a true professional and leads the conversation groups with encouragement and just the right amount of direction. It’s definitely been a good way to improve my french and I hope to return to them again in the future. Thank you Delphine!

A good way to improve my French

I have now had 3 one to one lessons and not having spoken much French since leaving school many years ago. I at first was very nervous and unsure of what I could remember. I am now looking forward to my 4th lesson, amazed at how much Delphine has dragged out of my memory and I am really enjoying learning again and with her help my conversation skills are starting to be much more understandable. So pleased I took the plunge to start learning again. Thank you.

Jayne

So pleased I took the plunge!

Delphine is a very patient teacher and never makes me feel self conscious if I get it wrong. Her get togethers are very informal but carefully structured so that we cover subjects relevant to today’s France. Most enjoyable and to be recommended.
