French Classes and Culture in Katy, West Houston.
French is a great language to speak and a true asset in today’s world. Learning it should be fun and rewarding.
Our approach is different. We combine classes and programs with cultural events and workshops to provide a true immersion.
Although learning grammar is important it is not the best approach to learning any language. We develop your listening and speaking abilities first. You learn through activities, discussions, and role-playing games to help you become confident.
Beyond language, cultural members and students learn how to make their own French baguette or discover regions and traditions of France.
Join in on our French mornings or French movie nights and social events to immerse yourself further.
