Frantastique has been great fun. I first studied French in a U.S. public high school, with an inspiring and very generous teacher, Mlle. Madeleine Doerfler. But then I went to Venezuela, became fluent in Spanish and nearly forgot my French. I owe this to you, Mlle. Doerfler (alas, now departed), and to myself, for the added pleasure of being able to speak to my increasing number of French and Canadian friends.— Geoffrey F. (Carboneras, Almería, SPAIN)
