french SUCCESS STORIES - HOW LEARNING french CHANGED STUDENT LIVES
We've gotten a lot of great feedback from our French students over the years, telling us of their successes and how learning at the French Institute changed their lives and gave them opportunities. Here are just a few stories::
improved spanish skills
I lived in France for a year, three years ago. When I came back to Auckland I enrolled in your school. The approach to learning, with the accompanying library is excellent and provides a logical, structured and fun way to learn. Last spring, when I went back to France, my friends told me that my French was much improved. Thank you French Institute
volunteer helps in central america
I traveled to Africa to volunteer and make a difference. Learning to speak French has really helped me to enjoy my travels. As I now sponsor several African children through World Vision, your course has allowed me to effectively speak with them. Thank you very much
reconnected to my culture
I was born in New Zealand and grew up in our monolingual education system, I was not allowed by my teachers to speak anything other than English at home so I grew up only speaking English. After taking classes at the French Institute I was able to talk to my mother in French, visit our relatives in France and live there for some time.
better manage my seasonal workers
I bought this course because I work with many seasonal farm workers. Sometimes I could get away with giving instruction in English, but often I could see that they did not understand. After doing this course I can now give them special instructions, tell them where to go and everybody is on the same page with no misunderstandings. Best thing I have ever done!
english teacher working in peru
I decided to take some private classes to brush up on my high school French as I was applying to teach in France, in no time I gained the confidence to speak in French thanks to my amazing teacher. Thank you for the links to schools in France and to be an English teacher assistant. Merci!
