Language Training Tailored to Your Special Needs and Culture Exchanges
The French & African Language & Culture Center (FALC) was founded by Yolande Matumbu, a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo where French is spoken in government and business as well as native tongues of several African languages.
An experienced, certified teacher, Yolande has also become fluent in English.
Why learn a foreign language?
Because it will enrich your life!
Your reasons for enrolling in FALC may include:
Isn't it difficult to learn a foreign language?
Not the way it's taught at FALC; classes are friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and the emphasis is on having fun while you learn.
Yolande's approach is through Conversation:
"I start with conversation, because people want to start using the language right away. They want a practical approach. So we start speaking the language immediately. With French, for example, I will never speak to students in English -- everything will be in French. This helps students to learn quickly. Of course, to speak correctly, you must also learn the grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary, which we teach in conjunction with conversation."
FALC's classes allow close interaction for ample individual instruction and pacing tailored to the student's needs and abilities.
