Meet your teachers:
Angela, an accomplished French court interpreter, excels at imparting her favorite second language to all seekers. She is CONVINCED you will love learning or reigniting your French with her.
She lived in France for half of her adult life, pursuing wave-watching on the Atlantic shore, learning to cook and greatly enjoying life the French way.
She holds a master's degree in French/English translation from the Université de Bordeaux.
She lives with her husband, Thierry and their five fantastic children, in two languages and between two continents.
Thierry: who is passionate about sharing his Gallic culture and language.
Although he moved across the big pond to better see life from an American perspective (for his wife and children) and ended up remaining, he is and always will be the French guy. He knows what it takes to learn a language; the nuances, the parts that never do make it into a textbook.
He lends his native French competence and a great tolerance for all the ways one can mispronounce his name and other French words.
Join us, and bring a joyous French vibe to your house.
The two of us met when we were teenagers and we each spoke approximately one and a quarter languages.
We had a big dream; one family, two cultures, two languages and as much of the world as we could see.
That dream has come true and we can help you make yours do the same.
We give you everything you need, from the instant you awaken: to start speaking in French with the one you are with. This includes an extraordinary value package of
VISUAL AND AUDIO lesson format
TRANSCRIPTS (to print and display)
AUDIO FILES (to download and listen to wherever your day takes you)
And the extraordinary extra step of monthly calls to ask your questions and get personal help: all included!
I had fun doing this class. As a beginner, working on pronunciation was a challenge, but the audio, visual and written all work together to make it easy. The dialogs reflect what happens in my day. It is easy to find spots to use them throughout the day with my husband. The video calls gave me a chance to practice, to get the sounds to be French, to do it over, if I wanted to talk and get advice. This is unlike every other time I tried to learn French, with a cassette or a book or a program online.
J'ai apprécié ce course! My friend and I committed to calling each other each day to go over the dialogue and the vocabulary on the resource page. We had fun swapping roles, dramatizing the dialogue, and discussing how we might incorporate the phrases in future conversations. We are looking forward to more adventures in conversing en français. Merci beaucoup!
I had a blast being a part of it... it became a focal point for my week, which was really nice. My speaking partner was sweet and funny and a great guy. We were well-matched in our levels of French and willingness to make mistakes with each other. We may try having future conversations, maybe every few weeks, to keep being able to practice. I was nervous about it all, but Angela and Thierry made it easy and interesting.

- Were you too a product of the sit-and-try-to-learn a language method ? Mad grammar skills but holding a conversation...? Way beyond our grasp.
CAN YOU TOO SAY?
"The apple is not a man."
"Hey, turn on the light, I dropped a needle."
Change that all: Say what you say each day, but say it in French!
