What Students Say

"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!"
