“Working in financial services mostly with French individuals and corporations, our management decided to give employees an opportunity to learn French. From my experience, speaking even a few words of French helps to break the ice during conference calls, in-person meetings and client dinners. Taking French lessons proved to be a fun team building activity and enlarged our corporate culture. The teachers are knowledgeable and fun.” — Nataliya M., Groupe Natixis

“I feel compelled to say a few words about the great operation at FIAF. A few years ago, the company I work for had allowed my boss, a native English speaker to take private French lessons.  My boss and I came upon FIAF and am happy to say we have been with them ever since. We cannot say enough how lucky we have been to find such a great group of professionals!” — Patricia K., Ipsos Americas
