Marie is an incredible French teacher. She provides high quality lessons in a friendly and relaxed environment. Her lessons immerse you in the language and are tailored to your individual needs and interests. She motivates you to reach your aims and goals- she encouraged me to sit my DELF B2 and provided me with all of the tools needed to pass it. I feel very lucky to have found Marie and cannot recommend her enough!

Marie-Claude caters the French courses around your language needs. I found this very helpful because as my language needs changed over the years, so did my courses with Marie-Claude. Each course was interesting, challenging, and thorough. We covered conversation, grammar, and writing skills. I couldn’t have survived learning the language if it wasn’t for her support and patience.

I have used Marie-Claude Vial as a one-to-one French teacher on and off for a few years now. The fact that I keep returning to her is credit to her style, adaptability and effectiveness. […]
She recently helped me pass an internationally recognised certification by suggesting which examination to go for (organization and level) as well as being instrumental in my preparation.
Her friendly approachable nature, along with her endless patience and sense of humour help to keep lessons interesting and relaxed, yet effective. […]

My husband, son and I took French lessons with Marie-Claude for about 8 months during our time in Annecy, France. Marie-Claude’s strength as a teacher is her ability to cater for people of different skill levels and needs. All her lessons are tailored to suit what you need – it was practical and relevant French. My husband needed assistance with ‘medical’ french for his job as a surgeon and I required more conversational every day French […]. Marie-Claude made sure our individual needs were met. Marie-Claude not only tailors lessons to suit your specific language requirements, but she pays particular attention to how you learn as a student. My husband and I learn very differently and she was able to keep us both motivated and interested, adapting her style to maximise our potential. […
