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!
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!).
I really enjoyed the Club. You made me feel very relaxed and I loved the way you structured the session.
I did really enjoy the game we played today…. You always come up with some really good ideas. I have really really enjoyed the conversation group, and you have renewed my enthusiasm to improve my french. So thank you again.
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!
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!
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.
Delphine is an excellent teacher – I cannot recommend her enough. My French wasn’t great when I first came to her but after 5 lessons I am already more confident and my conversation skills and vocab have massively improved. Can’t wait until my next lesson!
Lovely positive friendly tutor. Did some French speaking practice with my reluctant 12 year old who really enjoyed it in the end! She was patient, kind and very helpful. Did online session and that worked very well. Would recommend Delphine for sure. Thank you
Delphine is a kind and encouraging teacher. The classes are relaxed, fun and I have really gained a lot of confidence in such a short time. The groups are small and one of my favourite locations to meet is the French Cafe in Newquay – the cakes are amazing! I have also had a private lesson with Delphine and will be doing so again in the New Year alongside the conversational group. I would highly recommend Delphine to anyone, from beginners right through to advanced speakers.
I really enjoy the conversation class with Delphine on a Wednesday night and I am very proud of my progress. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a patient and capable teacher . 🙂
