I've studied French from high school days, then lived in Paris for two years after graduating college. I correspond on a regular basis with friends in France and feel as if I can improve my grammar and learn "modern" terms that weren't even thought of when I was in school. I'm even learning abbreviations. Lessons are fun and teachers are friendly and eager to answer questions. I especially enjoy dialogues in which I can hear the language spoken.— Theresa E.
