I chose the Alliance Française de Santa Rosa because of the flexibility and variety of classes. I have also greatly enjoyed my teachers there and the cultural opportunities such as the cheese workshop and the botanical workshop.
I am a winemaker and a few years back I lived in France to study viticulture. Now firmly rooted in California, I wanted to keep my French language skills in good shape, but was not encountering many folks locally with whom to speak in French. That all changed when I joined the Alliance Française and enrolled in the courses. Not only have I tapped into a thriving Francophone and Francophile community in Sonoma County, but I have enjoyed keeping my French on the ascent.
I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying my Pronunciation lessons with Kate. She is fun to talk with, speaks great French and translates very well. My daughter is also enjoying her class preparing for the DELF. She enjoys working with Joelle and she also very much enjoyed her last class with you (Lisa). Thanks for working to help us get better at French.
My wonderful teachers at the Alliance (Kate and Julia) have helped me tremendously in getting over being bloquée (inhibited) in speaking French. In addition, the supportiveness of fellow students is just wonderful, and very often elevates the quality of the courses. The Alliance Française de Santa Rosa is for people who wish to learn and practice their French in a supportive environment.
