 “I have been learning how to speak French and other aspects of the language with Emilie Castellanos for almost a year. I learnt some of the language at school over 30 years ago so have some basics knowledge. I have found her lessons to be very well structured and the way in which the lessons are formulated gives you just enough information to absorb in one lesson. You are never overburdened. Emilie is very patient and ensure you are comfortable with her explanations before moving to another topic. It’s great to have such a good teacher.”

 

– Kathy Jackson, Intermediate-level Student.
