'I spent 3 months working in a youth hostel in Sète, France. I had a brilliant time and the skills and experience I have acquired as a result of this placement have and will be invaluable. The work placement not only greatly improved my language skills (and allowed me to use them in a working environment), but also gave me the opportunity to experience living in France. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and working in a youth hostel allowed me to meet a variety of different people. I was able to build a network of useful contacts for the future and to make some amazing friends! I found ‘Boost your French’ incredibly helpful throughout my entire placement. Time was taken to find a suitable placement which matched my skills and interests; I received a lot of support with facilitating the placement (putting together contracts, contacting the employer, appropriate documents etc.) and everything was always dealt with quickly and efficiently.'Shonagh
We are editors of a multilingual journal which has regular articles in French. They all need to be proofread before going to press and we have chosen to employ the services of Boost your French.
We are totally satisfied with Catherine's services. She meets our deadline which is sometimes very tight and we feel that we have had excellent value for money.
We have been attending Catherine's classes for the past two years. They have been very successful and enjoyable. Our group consists of one adult, one 13 year old and two 15 year olds. The classes have included listening, speaking, reading and writing, in preparation for our GCSE exam next year.
Catherine has coped with the mixture of age and ability really well, supporting us individually and as a group, maintaining our individual involvement and motivation. We would all recommend her classes and teaching skills unreservedly, to all those wishing to learn or improve their French, whatever their age and ability.Adult Language Student
