The Alliance Française was first established in Paris in 1883 with the aim of promoting French language and culture around the world. The Federation of Alliances Françaises in the United States was founded on March 4, 1902.
One of 1,135 chapters in 138 countries, Alliance Française de Charleston was founded in 1960. Its 300+ members represent the mingling of two groups: a French community seeking to stay connected to their French heritage and an American community interested in experiencing French culture.
Patient teacher ; speaks Italian almost entire lesson ; always punctual.encouraging me , which I need a lot .
Gina is very flexible with her teaching approach. She meets me at my level. She slows down when I may not be grasping a concept and speeds up to keep me engaged.
I would whole-heartedly recommend her!
Gina was great for our first lesson. Very knowledgeable and does not try to overwhelm you with too much information. I am looking forward to my future lessons.
Gina's lesson was great. Her teaching style is interesting and conversational. I feel like I'm learning Italian better than I would be just from an online course or a classroom setting.
Gina was very experienced and knowledgeable of the language and was extremely helpful in teaching me the basics.
