Program Testimonals

My experience at Trois-Pistoles was fantastic. I learned new ways to teach using the neurolinguistic approach. My French also improved and I met colleagues who shared their resources and experiences. The instructor was also fantastic. She was engaging and always ready to help. She made the class very practical as well which helped to make connections with our classes.
