“It was an immense pleasure to attend Sylvie’s French and Belgian Film Seminar. Over the course of two days she introduced to the participants three carefully selected award-winning films produced by French and Belgian female directors. Each film was preceded by a short presentation where Sylvie skillfully (and with a great sense of humour) explored the biographies of the film directors (all three of them turned out to be truly fascinating characters) as well as main driving forces behind the films. Being absolutely different, yet equally enthralling, I found all three films highly enjoyable and thought-provoking. It was a great educational experience and I very much look forward to the next seminar…”
“It was totally worth it!  I had so much fun and I feel as though my French went up to a different level!  Thank you very much once again!”
“Thoroughly enjoyable. I think we benefitted from the small size of the group. An ideal format ”
“It was good to see three films I have never even heard of and there was a good variety and a good introduction to each one. The discussions were very interesting.”
” Did not know what to expect just wanted to be immersed into French, however Sylvie has opened doors for me and of all the courses I have attended this is the most beneficial. She was so well prepared and led us into this new world. I’ll be back.”
