How Online Courses Work

Flexible, fun, and fully immersive classes for adults and children are led by our outstanding native French-speaking teachers on Zoom. These virtual meetings aren’t just text-based courses spruced up with a few images or voice recordings to help you sound things out – they are comprehensive, immersive French courses that emulate the quality and environment of our in-person courses.
