"....some of the hints you gave me about the menu were a help.  I didn’t order an entrée and expect it to be the main dish.
Thanks again for teaching me enough to be polite.  It opened doors, created smiles, ..... Merci,"

'If you can take classes from Chantal in person, so much the better. However, doing it remotely via Skype is a viable alternative. I bet you'll enjoy your classes with her. I know I do."
