I was so impressed with [my professor’s] teaching techniques and her presentation of lessons… She was dynamic, could convey the subject with clarity and had a great sense of humor. I learned a lot in this class, most of all I learned to relax while learning French because [she] never judged you on your mistakes but felt that we learned while making mistakes and she is absolutely right.

J’ai adoré mon séjour comme fille au pair à Paris grâce à mon choix d’école. [Ma professeur] est la meilleure prof que j’aurais pu imaginer pour mes cours de français. Avec elle, j’ai eu l’occasion de beaucoup apprendre et de m’amuser avec ses drôles histoires. L’Étoile, 100% recommandable.
