I'm an old lady, I'm a second mother for 9 exchange students who came in Belgium for one year. They came from different countries: Australia, U.S.A., or from Europe : Sweden, Denmark, Portugal.. I have to help them learn French. Speaking English gives me the chance to keep in touch with them and their family. And also with them, why twenty years after their knowledge of French was going down. Your lessons are a good opportunity for me. Your lessons are pleasant, they don't take me too much time during my busy days... Yes, old people are busy: caring for my husband, my twelve grand children and to welcome my neighbours...— Monique C. (HUY, BELGIUM)
