I had Cécile as French language teacher for two courses at the Centre Culturel Français in Milan, Italy.
The course was in the evening after work and I had no real pressure to learn the language (I was studying French just because I liked it). These are the circumstances in which one would get to the course already too tired to feel like learning something, soon get bored, and just give up after a few classes.
With Cécile nothing like that happened. She has been able to communicate her passion for the language and we ended up learning French while having fun and looking forward for the next class. And, believe me, having fun while you're learning French grammar is not to be given for granted.
Cécile has just been the best language teacher I have ever had, and she is a reliable and trustworthy person.
