French Lessons with Christine

 I first saw Christine Camm on Instagram and knew that I had to know her story.

Christine is originally from Sheffield, England. She was a French teacher for over 30 years until she decided to follow her dream and move to the south of France. (My dream too!!!)

Christine and her husband Mark (along with their dog Leo) love to ski and wanted to be able to see mountains from the bedroom window of their new house!

“So I drew a line along the Pyrenees, the mountain range in the southwest of France, and we started searching,” Christine says.

It took three years but they found what they were looking for in the tiny village of Pujo, about two hours south of Toulouse.

“Pujo is so small that it has only one shop,” says Christine.

Oh but what a shop! It’s a French bakery  called “Patisserie Boulangerie Madrigal.”

“And it is simply the best “boulangerie” in the world!” says Christine.

 

Now, from her new home, (and steaming coffee and crusty baguette by her side) Christine conducts Online French Lessons in a business she calls Simply French Online.

She also offers her students the opportunity to visit her for a French Learning Homestay.  (Wouldn’t that be fun?)

Christine teaches students from all over the world and says anyone can improve at any age using a process she has developed called The Real French Method.

 

 This is way of teaching French that allows you to creatively and confidently engage in conversation right at the outset.

“It’s about developing spontaneous French speaking to learn vocabulary and grammar as opposed to rote learning using memorization and repetition,” Christine says.

In other words, you don’t have to be shy about speaking French. You know more than you think you do.

And Christine makes it fun!

(BTW Diana I also know Elizabeth Verwey who often speaks highly about you!)

    Pujo looks adorable but I wouldn’t want to stay in a village that doesn’t have at least a grocery , though coffee and baguettes are a good start. Unless there is a larger town close enough to cycle too, without huge hills in between! No, I’ll leave that offer for others, but would be interested in an intermediate to high-intermediate Spanish course on the other side of the border. My Spanish isn’t bad, but the Italian keeps creeping in.

    I would certainly love to live somewhere the snow stays politely high in the mountains. Weather bomb here in Montréal.

    Trudy, in the meantime get in the habit of listening to Radio-Canada at home. And nowadays you can read many things online, though Le Monde does have a paywall and not a lot of free content.
    Once a week Radio-Canada has top news stories from different French-speaking countries, which will expose you to different accents and to some extent vocabulary.

    • Nick Dale on February 5, 2019 at 3:20 am

      Well this is wonderful advice

  10. Erin Wagler on January 27, 2019 at 5:24 pm

    I am interested!!!!!!!!!!! I took 6 years of French, but that was 18 years ago. My dream is to take my whole family to France one day. But it’s been so long my confidence in the French language is almost non-existent. I’d love to take these courses!

  11. Maggie Sutrov on January 27, 2019 at 5:40 pm

  15. lagatta à Montréal on January 28, 2019 at 1:40 pm

    I’m dreaming of southwestern France and northeastern Spain and came across a mention of this book on Basque cookery, in the Guardian:
    Titre Basque : Spanish recipes from San Sebastián & beyond / José Pizarro.
    Auteur Pizarro, José, author.
    Éditeur Melbourne : Hardie Grant Books, 2016.
    In the Mtl library system!
    By the way, I agree with Christine about songs for French learning.

    • Diana Bishop on January 28, 2019 at 1:45 pm

      Lagatta, Thank you for all this useful info. I too would prefer a bigger place to live in the South of France.. maybe AIX which I do love.

      Spain too is on my radar for next year — Lord willing. Valencia!
