My students—both current and previous ones—are my inspiration for teaching.

What pleases me more than anything is seeing them progress in their lives in French, as well as in their understanding of my native language. For me, it is not just about teaching a two-month course–it is about helping them succeed here in France.

Let me introduce you to one of them:


Maria, psychologist

Maria Lurssen was born in Berlin, Germany. A psychologist, she has been in charge with public relations in a German company. She now lives with her family in Fleury en Bière, close to Fontainebleau.

Learning French because :
« I think it’s very important when you live in a country to speak the language in a way so that you can communicate and that suits your personality. And on a practical level, it’s very difficult if you don’t speak well. Also, I heard Catherine was very popular with moms from the school, and it was a good way to get to know people in the Fontainebleau area. »

Experience with « French in Fontainebleau » :

« Catherine is a very talented teacher and very patient. She’s well-structured, but always offers a lot of variety. What I liked also is she tests you before classes begin and puts you in a group where the levels match. She adjusts very well to the needs of the people in the group. Also, Catherine speaks English very well, and this is an absolute plus for beginners – even if modern teaching methods suggest you speak only in French. »

« And she takes dialogue that happens to you—talking to a teacher, dealing with a difficult neighbor—and she’ll let you do role-playing. Even French people said my progress was exceptional ! »
