At the moment while I am writing this article (December 2018), we still don’t know what is going on. Nobody, including European deputies know what is going to happen, when and how.

Learning French or any other language involves research, and ultimately choosing the best program for you. So the question is: Do you take your French class with a group, or are you more suited to private classes?

Learning French: Why September is a good time to start or, restart your French classes

Waaaow! Time flies! September is already around the corner. Can we start summer again? I wasn’t ready! Some of you are probably still enjoying a nice glass of rosé with a beautiful view of the beach while listening to the “criquets”. Summer is (supposedly) about recovering from last winter, enjoying friends and family, traveling to new places, discovering new things and maybe thinking about new projects and challenges for the coming fall and winter seasons. What’s your next challenge? If you’re reading this article, I assume taking or retaking French classes might be one of them.
