I have recently completed my first six week beginners French course with Julian at the Boyle family resource Center and highly recommend it. The course is very enjoyable and well paced. Julian teaches with great enthusiasm for the language and offers wonderful support through the on line classroom.

Julien is a brilliant teacher! I’ve completed unit 1 beginners French and Julien is so enthusiastic and patient and I’m really looking forward to continuing my French learning with him for unit 2. The lessons are a mixture of interactive conversations, games and worksheets. Definitely recommended if you’re looking to learn a new language! Thanks Julien 😊
