What Students Say
"Thank you for all your positive input as to my abilities and the methods of better approaching my learning of the subject material, Maria! I am looking forward to taking Spanish 7 in a Spanish speaking country, and to your excellent teaching methods and techniques for learning this beautiful language."
"I really appreciate the format of the online French class I am taking. The instructor is fantastic and since I struggle with hearing loss I am able to hear the instructor so much better than I could with in-person classes."
"I just wanted to say thank you for adjusting to the online classes. We love classes with madame Helena. Helena is the first French teacher who really inspired me to study français!"
"I am thoroughly enjoying my German language class. It is very interactive, and François is patient and encouraging, which makes learning a second language a lot of fun!"
