Welcome to the French Language Salon!

For those of you who are new to us welcome, and for those of you who have studied with us before welcome back!  We at The French Language Salon genuinely look forward to getting to know all of you, and to help you make strong connections with the French language, and culture.

If you’ve never studied with us before here’s a brief introduction to who we are and what we stand for.  Founded by our Program Director, François Thibaut, The French Language Salon is a division of SWC Enrichment Center dedicated to teaching French to adult language learners.  Thibaut began his career in the late 1960s, working as a teacher in the Paris public school system; eventually moving to New York City and founding his own private language school, The Language Workshop for Children.

Over the last 40 years, François Thibaut has perfected his own original teaching style, The Thibaut Technique ®.  This technique focuses on education by engaging the emotions of the students, while taking into account the different styles of learners: lookers, listeners, and movers.  Eventually, Thibaut’s groundbreaking work in children’s language education earned him recognition from CNN, Good Morning America, The Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, The New York Times, and New York Magazine.  When founding The French Language Salon, Thibaut adapted this wildly successful method for his work with adults.

No matter if you’re a beginner looking to start your journey into the French language, or you’re an experienced student with many years behind you, The French Language Salon is here to help you every step of the way.  Don’t forget to keep an eye on our blog!  We’ll be posting a new piece every week on a different aspect of French culture, and we’d love to have you join the conversation!
