"Valerie’s amazing French conversation lessons have literally changed my life. As a person in my sixties who needs to keep her brain alive I cannot count the benefits I have been reaping from my lessons. First, Valerie, to my amazement, has been consistently excavating from my brain the old, long forgotten partial knowledge of some French I acquired over 50 yrs ago and never used. Second, as an Airbnb hostess I can now greet my French guests in their language and even have some simple conversation with them, all of which adds to my success. Third, it is an unspeakable pleasure to be coached by Valerie, whose brilliantly inventive and caring approach makes one feel like a million bucks.
Learning French with Valerie is like adding more music to your life. And if you like to sing she will teach you how to sound like Edith Piaf!"
"I have been taking Italian lessons with Valerie for over a year via Skype. She is an excellent teacher who is knowledgeable, encouraging, and warm. Every week we review what we did the week before and then expand. She takes you as far as you’d like to go with the language and is always open to suggestions. Her rates are affordable and she is very accommodating with your schedule. You can never stop learning a language and I hope to continue with her for a long time. I recommend her wholeheartedly."
"So much fun! Valerie is a superb teacher who keeps the conversation moving, with patience and encouragement and humor! Highly recommend."
"I have enjoyed my conversations with Valerie. She is good at encouraging you to speak in French - even when you don't think you have the words. For me, oral communication in French is more difficult than written. So my time spent with Valerie is great to get my brain thinking in French. I started with Valerie twice a week for two months before attending an immersion course in France. Because of my conversations with Valerie, I was able to jump right into the immersion course without as much fear as I would have had otherwise."
"As a language teacher myself, I can attest to the fact that consistent, one-on-one conversations are absolutely essential to improving one's skills and gaining fluency in a foreign language as quickly as possible. BE FLUENT NOW specializes in this crucial area of language learning — which isn't always prioritized as it should be in other organizations — and does so in such a fun and engaging way. You are sure to make huge leaps of improvement while talking about subjects that interest you. The classes are extraordinary in every way. I give BE FLUENT NOW my highest possible recommendation!"
Valerie is an amazingly talented linguist with a rare flare for teaching. Her leçons are both entertaining and educational. Learning a new language from Valerie has become my favorite activity in my very busy week. I cannot express ( in any language) the joy I feel from these lessons and how grateful I am for that hour she gives me weekly.
Valerie is the best! Highly recommend for french lessons!
"I highly recommend Valerie!! She is enthusiastic and effervescent, and a very effective teacher who will adapt her methods to the learning requirements of the student. Allez-y. "
"I recommend Valerie; she is a very good teacher.
I can tell I speak French with much more confidence than before after studying with her. I am also a teacher and I approve her methodology of teaching."
"My 11 year old daughter Juliette has been taking French classes with Valerie for a few months now. The conversational format has helped her feel more comfortable speaking the language in public . Each lesson is so much fun! Valerie is an engaging teacher and is really great with children."
"I recommend Valerie. She’s a great French teacher. Very interactive online classes. She makes the learning fun!! That 60mins class just flies by!"
