I had heard about Anne’s programmes from Yvonne, who found her first immersion immensely valuable. She was also planning a second one, so this in itself speaks highly of Anne. My husband just happened to have a conference in Paris, so what better follow up than to be immersed in Thourie. Anne was so cheerfully flexible in the planning stages, even when we added an extra trip several weeks out from the commencement. We visited Rennes several times. We hauled her to Mont St Michel, then to Concarneau, taking in Rochefort en Terre and Pont Aven. Thence to Carnac to see the stunning stones. She adapted the programme to our interests the whole time, adding personalised videos and excursions because she noticed an interest. She also was so patient with me, consistently instilling confidence,  constantly encouraging me to voice my thoughts in French. Her skills as a teacher are patently evident. She is extremely organised, has vast resources prepared for easy access and is consistently cheerful and positive. We adored the accommodation. Such an authentic experience but with all the comforts and cleanliness to put one at ease. And the food!!!  I wish we could bottle her and take her home. Anne has high order interpersonal skills and will cater to all requirements… large, small and quirky. We are so glad we came.
