    I highly recommend Karin as a French tutor, I found her online 2 years ago when was looking for an opportunity to immerse myself in a French-speaking home environment, hoping to improve my speaking skills. My situation was a little different since I am a senior citizen, not a student. However, the arrangement was perfect for my needs.

    I had such a wonderful time living with Karin and her family for 10 days that I returned the next year for 12 days. I have continued to study with her by Skype and hope to return for home study again next year.

    Karin and her family are welcoming and warm, including me in family meals and taking me along for family outings, in addition to offering more structured times for learning. She is very flexible in her approach, according to the interests of her cliaents.In addition to teaching French, Karin is an artist and also teaches classes in creativity. Moreover, Karin and her husband are well-educated, cultivated and talented people who are fun to be with.

    Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa mi estancia en casa de Karine.Las clases adaptadas a las competencias que necesitaba mejorar o trabajar para el año que viene han resultado ser de gran ayuda.Además,hemos trabajado tanto el oral,como la expresión escrita como la comprensión oral.Las clases han sido muy variadas y entretenidas.La conviencia con toda la familia ha sido excepcional y hemos visitado las playas de los alrededores,la villa Noailles,el centro de Hyères…
    ¡Lo recomiendo de verdad para aquellas personas que desen mejorar su francés y acercarse a la cultura francesa!

    My husband and I have been working with Karin once a week for two months now. We are not progressing at the rate we should be because we only meet with her once a week and we don’t practice outside of class. We have a busy schedule and we cannot dedicate the time we should to French. She has not given up on us. Karin has made modifications and suggestions to her curriculum to find ways for us to learn outside of class that suits our busy lifestyle. In addition, her teaching style is very pleasant and easy to learn with. Karin is prepared for class each time we meet and she presents the material with enthusiasm and ease. I would highly recommend Karin as a French teacher.

    happy travels,

    I spent a few months in La Londe and took some lessons with Karin. She is an enthusiastic and fun teacher. She helped me with my pronunciation and gave me more confidence with my speaking.

    I had French lessons with Karine for five months and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn French! She is an excellent teacher; she made me feel very welcome and at ease and she made the lessons really enjoyable. I progressed much faster than I expected thanks to her!
