Apps can help you learn a language but can take you only so far. Give your fingers and neck a break! I offer in-person or small group lessons for all levels in NYC or via Skype for those outside the New York area.
275 million people people speak French around the world.
French is the only language besides English spoken on all five continents, an official language in 29 countries (second only to English).
French is a mother tongue to 1.6 million Americans,
and 6 to 11 million Americans speak French fluently as
a second language.*
For students enrolled in French, I have a proven track record of helping students to improve their grades and enjoy French more.
