How do you go about correcting someone?

I met my boyfriend's grandma for the first time this weekend. Her English is a bit broken and while she was telling me stories, she kept using "he" instead of "she". How can I (or my boyfriend) politely fix this? Or should we just leave it alone?

My boyfriend said he would probably never get an opportunity to fix it in conversation because they only speak to each other in Russian.
