I am 58 years old and planning a trip to France. After doing what I could with language tapes and self-study to refresh myself in a language I had only studied in school 40 years ago and had never spoken well, I knew I needed help to develop some confidence and learn conversational skills. I hired Catherine for a series of lessons (2 per week) over a month or so. It turned out to be an excellent decision. She took the time to understand what I needed and geared our sessions accordingly. She was generous with her time and her effort. Each time she tried to push the boundaries of my knowledge and ability a bit further without neglecting to review and reinforce what we had already worked on. However, she was always flexible and ready to let the lessons go where they would or where it appeared I needed help. She obviously spent a lot of time preparing for our sessions, often preparing written materials and aids specifically for my needs. I know it could not have been easy for her to hear me stumble through and mangle the language, but she was always patient and encouraging. We worked on general conversational situations and common phrases, but we also worked beyond simple traveler's French, spending time on grammar, proper verb tenses, pronunciation (which was invaluable) and idioms. She frequently gave me cultural tips about France and the French to help me enjoy my trip more. I can not claim even conversational fluency at this point, but I am certainly better prepared and more confident than I could ever have become working on my own. Moreover, she was flexible in working out a schedule that worked for both of us and was unfailingly cheerful and prompt. A very good experience.
