Nadia is a brilliant teacher, full of enthusiasm and uses a huge variety of ways of learning languages. I'm embarrassed to say that learning a different language doesn't come easily in our family, but Nadia managed to get the very best from both our children enabling them to get excellent grades at GCSE. i would thoroughly recommend her'.
I first met Nadia about a year ago when she stepped in to help my son through his GCSE French. She was absolutely charming, very french & a wonderful teacher! My son got top marks thanks to Nadia's patience and excellent tuition.
My eldest son has just left for Europe to do a post grad course & had a lesson with Nadia before he left. He was so excited to resume his french speaking after meeting her, as she is enthusiastic, truthful & fun.
I only knew the basics before I met Nadia but now after a year of having lesson, I really have learnt a lot, Nadia has given me the confidence to go to France and actually have conversations – this is a far cry from just learning from a book. She makes the lessons really interesting, which makes it so much easier to learn.lessons are innovative and personalised, which is so refreshing and makes the whole process much more enjoyable. I would thoroughly recommend Optimum Languages.
with Nadia. The lessons are interesting, stimulating, well organised and conducted in a friendly yet exacting way. A broad range of methods are employed in order to consolidate what you learn. Nadia includes interactive lessons, reading various news related articles relating to France and UK, as well as books and magazines., Nadia invites her students to meet each other at film nights where we view one a fantastic French films (avec sous-titres!) and enjoy a chat, no matter what your level of ability.
As an adult learner, Nadia has helped me improve my French enormously, and I am planning to take the A2. She is a very enthusiastic and effective teacher, and packs a lot into each lesson. I was really impressed, so now my children are having lessons too. I highly recommend her.
