"I just wanted to say a word about my teacher for Level 1 French. I cannot say enough about how good she was with the group, and how she got everyone involved in speaking.  I always had a lot of energy going into class and even after. I looked forward to class every day."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the language classes with the YMCA.  I think one would be hard-pressed to find better teaching skills anywhere.  My teachers were superb.  One in particular has a lovely manner with students and quickly puts them at ease; she is so welcoming and encouraging. Also, the way in which the teachers worked together to ensure that the material covered in the morning class was deliberately re-enforced in the afternoon class was particularly valuable.  That is an excellent technique. I teach in an Irish university so I would be very aware of teaching practice and teaching skills, and the experience I had with the two YMCA teachers was flawless."
