Valerie Galinsky has long been fluent in a diversity of languages and cultures. Having grown up in Martinique, her first language is French. She also has native fluency in English — the result of her having come to college in the US, where she now lives — and in Italian — having spent a number of years in Italy.
In addition to her passion for languages and cultures, Valerie has a strong interest in health and well being, having worked for several years as a certified health coach, helping people achieve their goals in all areas of their lives. While doing this work, she found that many of her clients loved to travel and wanted to immerse themselves in the target language before heading to a foreign country. Language coaching then became an integral part of her health coaching practice. Soon, she started to receive so many requests for conversation classes that she had the insight to create a new venture merging her expertise in both areas. That’s how Be Fluent Now was born.
Be Fluent Now is unique in the field.
First, because its Founder, Valerie Galinsky knows that full immersion in one-on-one conversation while speaking about subjects that interest the student — as opposed to simply learning words on a vocabulary list or memorizing grammar — is the quickest path to fluency.

As a holistic language coach, she uses her health coaching skills to help her students integrate their language acquisition into the rest of their lives.
