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. (Readers of this blog have gone to stay with Christine and they loved it!)
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!
