Diane is extremely positive and encouraging. Her knowledge of language learning is very helpful. We talk about topics of mutual interest and the time flies by. She usually will work some formal exercises into the lesson to introduce or reinforce grammar I am lacking. My french is improving with her guidance. Thank you, Diane!

Мне очень нравятся занятия и преподаватель. Я начала изучать французский с полного нуля несколько месяцев назад. Я считаю, что мне очень повезло, что я изучаю французский с таким замечательным учителем. Она всегда поддерживает и мотивирует к разговору, даже если ты делаешь миллион ошибок, все они будут замечены и аккуратно, тактично исправлены с пояснениями. Уроки всегда проходят эффективно и весело, я узнаю новые слова и грамматику, но при этом в разговорах постоянно обращаемся к уже пройденному ранее, поэтому у меня не получается забыть то, что я уже прошла:) у Diane отличный русский язык, почти без акцента, хороший словарный запас, поэтому мне было все понятно из ее объяснений на русском языке. Мы не используем учебники, уроки максимально персонализированы, можно после занятия просматривать все пройденное в гугл документе, это удобно. Я рекомендую занятия с этим учителем, начинающим и продолжающим изучать французский 🇫🇷🥐🥖

Diane is an excellent teacher. She is patient and flexible. She corrects my mistakes but is still able to keep the conversation moving. She explains grammar (or how to best learn difficult grammar) well. Our conversations are always interesting, and the lesson summary she sends following our sessions (with all my errors) are really helpful. They allow me to go over my mistakes so I can hopefully keep from making them a habit. We have discussed random topics, articles and, of course, French. We’ve worked on my pronunciation with dictation, after which she sent me a sound file of her reading the same paragraph. She explains how French language is used naturally, as well; some things are not really found in textbooks. Our lessons are something I look forward to on this journey in learning French. On top of all this, she is a very nice person! I’m so happy to have found her.
