What former students have to say about this program:
“The CERAN method is exceptionally well design for a complete language learning experience. It caters for complete beginners all way through to those just looking to perfect their fluency in their chosen language.”
Zu R., L’Oréal Paris.
“Because the classes are small, the teachers work closely and attentively with students: within the framework of a class, they address the needs of individual students. Moreover I had the opportunity to continue using new material the whole day. For that reason, I improved my French in less than a week.”
David K., Professor. Pennsylvania.
