The French conversation classes held by Marilyn Morris in her charming cottage are always enjoyable. The group is very friendly and we are of varying ages and abilities. Marilyn is an excellent (and very patient ) teacher, and her lessons are relaxed and informal. I always look forward to the classes and try not to miss any!
Jane McFarlane, Gillingham.

 I cannot thank you enough for all your help over the
years with our four children when they were taking their GCSEs and A Levels - it has been invaluable.

I will really miss my lovely dose of French every week!
CG Winchester

I needed to quickly learn the basics of the German language for a new job. Marilyn has a broad knowledge of the German language, people and culture. She is an experienced teacher and takes a very pragmatic approach to learning, tailoring the approach to the individual need and circumstances. Our lessons have been interesting and fun and after only a few hours I felt confident to use what had been learned with my new colleagues.
Thanks again for all your support.

David Hall, Shaftesbury, Dorset

Thank you for your French conversation classes over the past year.  They have brought a lovely breeze of freshness and colour into my life - all we have talked about, what I have learned and getting to know everyone.
Kathryn Vere, Winchester

I got an A* in French A2 and  100% in my A2 French Speaking exam, couldn't have done it without you, so thanks very much.
FM, Meonstoke

We have just got back this morning and Frazer was pleased to find out that he'd achieved a Grade B in GCSE German. He's very happy and we are too.
Thanks for all your help because without his one-to-one revision sessions we have no doubt that he would have struggled to pass the exam. In such a short time you gave him the skills and the confidence and now he's done well.

Leanne Attrill, Denmead

I have really enjoyed my one-to-one, advanced French lessons and you have been a brilliant teacher. I feel as though I have made a lot of progress
F.W., King’s Somborne

You came to our house every week to fit around Frankie’s very busy schedule and made the lessons most enjoyable. She found it easy to learn using your methods and felt relaxed working with you. You worked alongside her school French lessons, building depth of knowledge and confidence. She now enjoys the language and is continuing to study French beyond GCSE. Thank you from us both.
Jenny Mulholland, Hedge End

Thank you very much for your efforts over the past few months. I think that I can speak for all my colleagues when I say what a pleasure it has been to hone our language skills under your tutelage. Whilst none of us can claim to be fluent, we have all learned significantly and, what’s more, enjoyed ourselves thoroughly at the same time. You managed to keep everything lively, interesting and relevant.
Andrew Black, Graham Martin & Company, Chartered Accountants, Eastleigh

Thank you very much for coaching me for two years. I really enjoyed the lessons and I learnt so much.

Marilyn provided English support at Lainston House Hotel for our non-English speaking staff. Marilyn was always professional when I dealt with her, bringing her wealth of teaching experience to the table. She took on board the brief and delivered exactly what was required, teaching the students basic English to be able to converse with guests, and providing a route for their development in English skills. She also developed our more confident non- English speakers, 'fine tuning' their skills to be more customer focused in the Hotel.
Fiona Foley, HR Manager, Lainston House Hotel, www.lainstonhouse.com

The trip to our suppliers in France went very well. We were amazed how much we had taken in and could say. We were also very pleased that we could understand what our suppliers were saying or, at least, when they didn’t speak too quickly! Gill even managed to give someone directions to the station. Thanks for all your help, it has been much appreciated.

I had learnt French at school but hadn’t used it for 10 years and desperately needed to brush up my written and spoken French for work. Since starting lessons in 2007, my colleague and I now have the confidence not only to write all emails to our suppliers in French, but to pick up the phone and actually have a conversation in French, something which I never thought I would be able to do. The great thing about the way in which Marilyn works, is that all the lessons are specifically tailored to our requirements and she is very flexible in her approach. I have no hesitation in recommending MBS Language Training to friends or colleagues wanting to improve or develop their language skills.
Lisa Jones, www.thierrys.co.uk

MBS helped me move my French standard to a point where I can now confidently extend my company's business activities to France.
Rob Carter, www.millgatewinchester.co.uk

My daughter wouldn't have achieved these grades in Spanish without your help at MBS. She has now been accepted by the university of her choice.T.K., Romsey

The flexible, friendly and personalised course you provided was an excellent experience which I enjoyed very much.
A.M., Hedge End

After just one hour of French with Marilyn, much to my surprise, my daughter emerged not only with a smile but enthusiasm and more importantly expressed a desire to continue with more lessons. This is truly a great achievement on Marilyn's part and I would definitely recommend her.
 Ian Guthrie, wwwthebestof.co.uk/local/winchester

MBS prepared our daughter for all aspects of the examination, bringing on her reading, writing, listening and speaking skills using up-to-date materials...she obtained an A* grade.
A.W., Swanmore

Thank you for all your help over the last few months - it really has been of great benefit and my French has greatly improved - especially in the key area of reading.

Off I went to Morocco after weekly French lessons with MBS.  Thanks to you I was able to successfully barter in the souks and generally feel confident that I could communicate with people.
Emma Hansford, Director, www.challengemanager.co.uk

The tuition provided by MBS gave the team the confidence to travel to France and communicate with people ensuring that my company produced a highly successful television series.

Marilyn Morris accompanied us to France where we had a stand at an exhibition.  Her linguistic skills were a great asset in helping us to communicate with potential clients.
Celia Lincoln & Gail Tsoukala-Steggell, Heritage English, Lymington

MBS delivered a very professional service in a friendly and relaxed manner which built confidence and ensured increased linguistic ability in a very short time.
Martin Ladd, www.pitman-winchester.co.uk

When my colleague and I went to MIPIM, the property and development conference in France, we found that we were well prepared by the excellent French tutorials provided by Marilyn Morris at MBS. I was particularly delighted and impressed by the care she took to research building, property and sustainability issues. Her warmth and good humour made the tutorials informative as well as enjoyable and I highly recommend her courses to anyone planning a business trip abroad.
Duncan McKellar, Design Director, Househam Henderson, www.hharchitects.co.uk

We have been really pleased with how Jo Bestoni at MBS has coached our daughter for her AS Italian exam. She has really built up Ellie's confidence and has been very helpful. I would happily recommend her.
