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.


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 to judge the produce at the markets like a local connoisseur each week, and greatly enjoying life the French way.

She holds a master's degree in French/English translation from the Université de Bordeaux, a bachelor's in Spanish/French translation, and she is certified as a judiciary interpreter at the highest level.

She lives with her husband, Thierry and their five fantastic children, in two languages and between two continents.

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.

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.

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!

This course is for the student:

  • Who has always wanted to study French, but either did not, or wants an easy level
  • Who is quite over the "repeat after my screen" approach, merci!
  • Who has decided that NOW is the time to say "oui!" to yourself, to enjoying life, to speaking French: they all go together!

This may not be the French class for you if:

-Your favorite is studying grammar for hours on end

-You have had years and years of learning French

-You really WOULD rather stare at your screen and click on the next inane phrase offered that may or may not have anything to do with real life.
