"I am a visual learner. I have enjoyed the presentation of leaning and enjoy very much the history and culture learning experience I am having with the video lessons, along with learning and lengthening my vocabulary in French. It's wonderful to be able to speak the proper names of the foods along with explaining and carrying on the teachings of history as conversation pieces while serving to guests. Thank you."
