Shauna / 31 years old United Kingdom

I have made much more progress in 6 months than I ever imagined. A big thank you to Tiana for always making the lessons fun and for your patience, you’re the best 🙂

Starting point
Shauna started taking classes with us when she and her husband moved to France for his job. She immediately decided to learn French to be able to manage daily situations and also to make a social life for herself. She had studied a bit of French at school but had almost forgotten everything.

Free trial class
During her free trial, Shauna immediately got on very well with her teacher Tiana and together they defined objectives and a learning programme. The idea was that Shauna should be able to have everyday conversations as quickly as possible and communicate with her neighbours and new acquaintances. She chose to have three classes a week.

The first weeks
The first few weeks focused on vocabulary, basic expressions and verbs, and pronunciation. Tiana used a mix of short dialogues, games, repetition and consolidation exercises, and clear explanations to get quick results. In addition to this, Shauna had homework after each lesson so that she could continue to make progress outside of her lessons with Tiana. She quickly acquired a solid foundation and gradually gained confidence. After 6 weeks, the sessions started to include more and more real-life situations and role-playing, while continuing to make progress in vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.

After 6 months
After 6 months Shauna has reached a B2 level and is now able to talk easily about a wide range of subjects, understand television and read books without having to use a dictionary. She continues to take classes, to improve, and now has the ambition to become a real expert in the French language.
