Testimonials - French Language Classes

Here are just a few testimonials from recent French classes at the CALA Summer Language Institute:

"Learning this new language just as I learned my first language really helped me learn it quickly and I know I will retain it much more easily,"  --Kelsey T., High School Student

"I loved how such simplicity allowed me to understand and participate in such a complex language so easily!  I was told that as I got older it would be more difficult to pick up and retain a new language, but this method proves that statement wrong by making us all young again!"  --Caleb S., College Student

"Now that I have gone through [another CALA course] I discovered how much joy and confidence it brings to students!"
