This year I booked a holiday for the family through France-voyage.com. Some days later, I received an email - why not work on my French? It was followed by free lessons. I was nicely surprised by my level, which was ''opération de base'', level 3. The time that the lessons cost me during the trial period was very reasonable and the level, easy to follow. I already was thinking how to keep up my level of French...and this was the way to do it. In July we went to France (of course...where else?) This time I had no adaptation time - normally it takes me about 3 days to speak fluently. For me, this is just a great way to keep up my knowledge of the language and even to improve myself, with minimum time and money investments. So I save time for my 2 boys, 1 husband, 1 dog, my work and my sports.— Jeanine O. (Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS)
