Elena's testimonial for Frantastique

"After graduating from Yale Law School, I decided that it was time to prepare for my forthcoming job at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

It was in that moment that I discovered Frantastique, which rapidly became my new hobby. It is probably one of the funniest and most useful French courses I have taken so far.

Merci beaucoup, Frantastique team! Because of you I am even more excited about moving to France! :)"
