French Life Immersion & Intensive Classes

Your instructor


Claire will accompany you throughout your stay.
Her long experience has taught her that each moment of training presents a challenge for the instructor, who must constantly adapt to the student’s needs, culture and sensibility. Her main aim is making rapid progress through fruitful exchanges. The friendships that sometimes develop are her best reward.

Experienced in teaching French to foreigners for more than 30 years, Claire began working for other language study programs before opening her own business in 1992 in Paris, where she trained the staff of large companies with the help of a team of colleagues.
Claire has also trained many individuals.

For the past nine years, she has successfully taught Intensive French Classes on the Ile de Ré.
