Doing the ‘all French’ parts of class used to be overwhelming, but it is getting easier and it has been helpful. I like how we do a lot of review and just take things one step at a time

My instructor is amazing with her organization skills and her efficiency with making sure that the online section has all the materials for success. Her helpful organization hints, support, patience, and sense of humor are remarkable and make the ‘pressure’ of learning a new language seem not so bad after all. It helps feeling like I am being set up for success, and my instructor provides that wholeheartedly.

One language sets you in a corridor for life.
Two languages open every door along the way.
