Trevor from USA
"I can use four words to describe Time to Speak French, personalized, proactive, professional and productive. After an online French course with one of the big language education companies, I did not feel like my objectives for learning French were accomplished. With Laura at TTSF, we started a face-to-face evaluation of my French after which she followed up with customized subjects and activities designed to address my weak areas. Her professional and very approachable attitude made the lessons comfortable and fun, even when attempting some of the most challenging language topics. Without a doubt, my French has progressed beyond my expectations with TTSF. Most of all, Laura makes learning to speak French Fun."
