  • Nicole was friendly and lots of fun. We had a great group of students and I felt challenged.
  • The course was well paced and each student received good attention. Presenter/Lecturer was very good.
  • A wonderful term’s instruction in French by Nicole. She is a most encouraging and supportive teacher and creates a collegial class environment where we are all encouraged to contribute to conversations in French and to further our acquaintance with French grammar.
  • Nicole is very engaging and she is always moving us forward Good revision but most of all that it is a small class so you receive the attention that you need
