I have just had the pleasure of meeting Georgie a 10 year old student at Alpine French School.
Today, (Friday 2nd Nov) is the last day of his course at the Alpine French School. He has been on a French Intensive week’s course with one of our teachers Céline. Georgie has attended a private one and a half hour class everyday (Monday to Friday) where he has practiced his spoken French, listening skills, pronunciation and his grammar.
This is the Georgie’s third time at Alpine French School and his second week with Céline as his one on one tutor.
I often overheard some of Georgie’s lessons as I walked past his classroom and assumed he was originally from the UK, but now lived in Morzine. You know what they say about assuming?! His accent is perfect!
After speaking with Georgie and his Dad they told me that they owned a place in a village, just outside Morzine. They usually manage to get out and visit for 2 weeks in Summer holidays and at half terms, but most of the winter visits are for skiing! Last Winter Georgie was lucky enough to do a season here. He went to the French school in Essert Romand, the village where their property is for 4 months. What an experience at such a young age.
Céline’s comments: “Georgie’s progression has been excellent. He is now at the level of a year 8 or 9 pupil or A1:3/A2:1”
Céline also suggested Skype lessons with Alpine French School to continue with his development.
