From the moment that I arrived in France, I heard and saw many things exactly as they had been described and taught and immediately felt more confident, knowing that I really had been armed with some very reliable 'insider knowledge'!By the end of my trip, I couldn't believe how far my confidence and ability had come and this was primarily thanks to the excellent starting point that the lessons had provided.
I would add that Clare's book about 'dying less stupid' is amusing and an interesting insight.
In my view, anyone of any age or ability, could learn French under Clare's empathetic tutelage. My husband and I have been having French lessons with Clare for nine weeks.
You inspire and you have a very good method of getting your points across. lessons with Clare were very well organised and stress free.
I had French lessons at school and wanted to improve upon what I had learnt, I felt that I could learn at my own pace with no pressure to move on to a new topic without understanding the previous lessons.
We would certainly recommend Clare for French tuition, she is very experienced and helps us feel confident in speaking French even when we are little unsure and we feel that our French has really improved because of her encouragement. Clare Jones is an excellent teacher, and in a few short months has helped me dramatically improve my spoken French.
She is always well prepared for our lessons, has a very good approach, and makes me feel relaxed and so able to learn.
I would recommend Clare to anyone who wants to build up their confidence in French. The girls think you are lovely and most of all they enjoy coming to you.
I never have to bribe or cajole them into going to their French.
I am a mature student, to say the least, and French at school was my worst subject.
