Learning Travel French is easier than you think! Especially if you take it step-by-step. I had the joy of living in France for 13 years. Since that time, I've been teaching French to adults and teens in a variety of settings. (And I taught English in France too!)
I can teach you to be operational in French for your next trip to France, whether for vacation or business. You'll be proud of yourself as you speak in restaurants, with locals, and anywhere you go on your trip to France!
I have a France-only website, Oliver's France, full of destination ideas, tips, and resources. You may also find my books helpful for travel: Magical Paris: Over 100 Things to Do Across Paris and A French Garden: The Loire Valley.

Real French for Travelers is the ideal course for learning practical French that can be used on a vacation to France, a business trip or to fulfill a personal goal. Each lesson is highly focused on a particular topic and is just the right length - short enough to keep the student's focus but long enough to ensure mastery of the particular concept being covered. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking for an easy, cost-effective way to master practical conversational French. Quentin S.
