In 2013 some friends and I were planning a trip to France, so at the beginning of that year, I decided to start learning the language. The reason was not only to communicate but also, to keep my brain active, as I’m not getting younger. After 4 years, I still find it as enjoyable and as challenging as when I started. The teachers are French, and they are friendly, helpful and very good at their job. I love the interaction with the other students, and because there are some social gatherings, I’ve had the chance to meet people from the other classes. I plan to continue with the course, as it has become part of my life. Diane.
