About Our School
Founder Marie-Claire Thauvette (B.Ed., B.A.) began offering after school French tutoring and summer camps in 1988. Her engaging, positive teaching approach and creative educational philosophy quickly gained the attention of parents and students alike. Her business grew steadily through word of mouth. In 1993, she founded Fast Forward French, and expanded her unique French language training to include government and business programs.
Online training involves a variety of multimedia elements, including graphics, audio, video, and web-links, which all can be accessed through one’s internet browser. These elements are used in lieu of traditional classroom components. In addition to presenting course material and content, online training gives students the opportunity for live interactions and real-time feedback for such things as quizzes and tests. Online training is generally self-paced and customizable to suit an individual’s specific learning needs.
