Language learners

I have always wanted to understand French (and also be understood when I try to speak French) when I go on holiday to France. Ewa has managed to recover the small amount of French I learned in school and has built on it .She is a patient and encouraging teacher, I really enjoy learning with her and am gaining confidence with both speaking and listening to the language. One to one lessons allow me to go at my own pace and recap things I have forgotten . I can highly recommend her teaching. – Elizabeth
Learning a new language can be daunting, but with Ewa the lessons are tailored made to suit your ability. Looking back over the term, it’s amazing how much you cover which is all relevant to day to day living. In no time at all you feel more confident in speaking the language and look forward to progressing with each lesson. I highly recommend Ewa for her enthusiasm and approach to teaching which makes the experience of learning a new language an enjoyable one. – Sheila
I have tried the ‘teach yourself’ French with CD’s without any real success but have made so much progress in a short space of time with Ewa. She started right at the beginning for me and I really enjoy her method of teaching and patience, which makes the quite daunting task more enjoyable. – Peter
