Our French language program is implemented within a cultural context, so by providing an in-depth, linguistic and cultural instruction, we create a unique blend of stimulating environment and dynamic learning experience. We encourage students to be enriched by new cultures and to discover hidden opportunities. Students of all age preschool to retirees come to learn—or enhance existing skills. French adult classes will start again in January for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Learn French with an acclaimed and experienced native teacher, in person or remotely via Skype. Whether it is for school, work or pleasure, Sandrine's lessons are tailored to every student's needs and goals.
