Student Reviews

"The class was great!

"The course was well structured and gave me just enough information to feel like it was in depth without going into so much detail that would have made it confusing."

"It helped a great deal to have the instructor correct our pronunciation while we spoke."

"The teacher was really engaging and we had the opportunity to talk with other students and also train our French with each other and get to know each other."
