If you are looking for a place to learn French in Lansing/Okemos, this is the best place. I’m a Ph.D. student at MSU and I started to take French due to working in tandem with labs in France. I wanted a place to supplement my French learning and this place fit perfectly.

The class sizes are small, no more than 4 people, and even when you first start you will be taught 99% of the time in French. This was hard at first. You will feel confused and self conscious about not knowing the right thing to say or not understanding what is going on. But trust me, stick with it. You will start to pick up small words and phrases and before you know it you’ll be understanding a lot of what is said.

This has put me leaps and bounds above the others in my French class at MSU in terms of pronunciation and learning all those tricky rules in French. There are also a lot of extras that come with the school. Such as French game night on Friday, which is super fun, and other opportunities to connect with other people who love French.

Give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed.
