“Maman heureusement que tu m’as fait faire du français avec Barbara! Sinon je n’aurais rien compris à l’école!” Here are the words, maybe in a slightly less perfect french, that my 10 years old daughter told me when we moved to Paris this autumn and started school here! Barbara succeeded in less than 6 months to get my girls to a level satisfactory enough for them to feel comfortable and not completely lost. Barbara is truly great teacher for native and second language pupils alike that need to progress in french. She was able to adapt the level of teaching for each of my two girls 7 and 10. I would have struggle without her. Merci beaucoup Barbara!"
