  • Testimonials

    My exceptional French teacher at FIAF creatively weaves grammar, conversation, everyday living, and culture into lessons. All my experiences with FIAF have been excellent.
    — Teresa P.

    “Our daughter was committed to learning French but could not take it at school and we live too far to enroll at one of the FIAF sites. FIAF set up an online high school level course for her. Her instructor skyped with her weekly. He used the communicative approach, emphasizing grammar and vocabulary acquisition and oral and cultural proficiency. He was professional, kind, and patient, and provided lessons that were intellectually challenging and stimulating. Our daughter not only gained knowledge, but also confidence in her use of the French language. She very much enjoyed the weekly sessions and looks forward to continuing her education in French.”
