Imagine this...

You are travelling in France to meet some friends. You can’t find your train, and everyone is speaking at what seems like warp speed. Suddenly all the time you invested in your French language studies goes out the window, and all you can feel is the knot in your stomach. You try to muster up the courage to ask for help, but nothing comes out in French…and worse, you can’t even get the attention of the person behind the counter!

Sound familiar? At one point you have either experienced this scenario OR you imagined it going down like that.

But what if you could learn a language in a way that would help with your confidence and retention and give you the knowledge of cultural differences so that you are able to connect effectively with the native speaker?

At The Language Learning Institute, you can learn skills that enable you to converse at the level on which you are studying. We use tried and tested methods to build your confidence in speaking and understanding AND we support your experience by educating you in the cultural and linguistic nuances of what you are studying.

Founder/Director Nancy A Scarselletta

Hello! I'm Nancy. On my journey to becoming bi-lingual, I studied and lived in Biarritz and Paris where I was inspired to teach French differently. Wanting to teach students how to speak French and connect with people, I took my diverse undergraduate work, studies in phonetics at the Sorbonne, and my Master's Degree from Middlebury and created what is now known as The Language Learning Institute Methodology. Thousands of students have benefited from this way of teaching, and you can too!

French Teacher Sandra Perin

Sandra Perin was born in Croatia, where she started learning French at the age of 9. She attended bilingual French high school, before moving to Paris in 1998 to study Human Resources and International Trade at Sorbonne University. Passionate with French language and culture, she lived in Paris for 22 years and worked as an HR Consultant. Before joining the Language Learning Institute, she was teaching French to her family and friends, both adults and children.
