Comment from Katie, who attended the Immersion week in September 2014

I just attended a full week immersion program with Anne at the farm in Thourie. It was am amazing experience. Not only is Anne an exceptional teacher, she is a wonderful guide for all of Bretagne. She put her heart and soul into the program and her love for the culture and language is profound and infectious. I came away with a renewed desire to improve my French language skills as well as a wonderful memories of the trip. Her patient and flexible approach to the course made it easy for all. Her sense of fun and enthusiasm are a natural gift and I strongly recommend this program to anyone with an interest in a unique and very personal approach to French language and cultural immersion.

Merci Anne!!

Comment from Yvonne, who attended the Immersion week in October 2014

French immersion with Anne in Thourie was great! The activities were varied, challenging and enjoyable. I loved the excursions with little tests along the way. Anne has boundless energy and a passion for the language and culture that comes through in her teaching. She is thorough, well prepared and adjusts her teaching methods to the needs of the students. With her patience and encouragement I achieved my goal of gaining confidence in speaking French. Anne’s group management skills are formidable! I admired the way she organized all our class activities, cooking sessions and excursions. She was able to get us all working together in a very short time. I met some lovely people and learned a lot of French. Thank you Anne for taking care of us and thank you for working so hard to make our time in Thourie so much fun.

Comment from Kathy, who attended the Immersion week in October 2014

This is a fun, stress-free, convivial week of learning French with Anne at her family home of Les Burons in the beautiful Breton countryside; classes are always small, only three to five students. Unlimited opportunities to speak in French abound, and one is always gently encouraged to ask questions and participate in everything. Anne's teaching methods make learning fun all day. During the breaks, one can use the wifi, relax, or take a walk to see the neighboring farms, which are inhabited by cows, horses, and ponies. Then, after a delicious lunch prepared by Anne with the help of one or two of the students, Anne takes everyone to explore the quaint villages, see sites, or visit the nearby historical towns. Even on the afternoon tours, all are encouraged to continue learning, usually immersed in a project that Anne has suggested. Evenings at Les Burons are comfortable and friendly with lots of laughter during l'Apero, as those who wish help Anne prepare the meal. All become acquainted with many French as well as Breton customs, foods and drinks. After a long, happy day, students finally retire to their private rooms for a welcome rest, while listening to the owls hoot in the woods nearby.​

Comment from Jeana, who attended the Immersion week in September 2014

Just got back from Anne’s immersion class. I completely agree with Katie Rosson’s quote above. The classes were well thought out and we made significant progress. The accommodations at the beautiful farm were very comfortable, the meals were fun to cook and delicious, and the excursions to surrounding villages of Brittany were very interesting. Check out Anne’s Pinterest board to see our group in action.

    Wow. This is MARVELLOUS,

  • kathy king

    This sounds amazing! I am signing up!

    I was thinking more about your site and one of the things that makes it very fine is that it actually feels rather like being in France. There are other sites that are good in terms of the mechanics of learning the language, (in fact, I started the Speed Learning Languages program and it was downright dour). You seem to provide an experience that feels French – and fun! So thank you again.

  • Yay, Kathy and Bill actually signed up. What about you? There is still one spot letf for you to learn French, French food and the French way of life with Anne in October. Sign up now!

    I was excited to go before, but now, I am even more excited after reading Katie and Jeana’s reviews. I have been taking weekly Skype lessons with Anne for a year and a half, and I will soon get to meet her in person and make even more progress with an entire week of language immersion! I am going to look at the photos on Pinterest now!

    I hope someone will take the last spot in October with us as this is too good of an opportunity to miss.
