Alice-Michou is a well-educated and polished native French speaker who came to the United States from Paris, where she grew up studying and working for fine French companies. Alice also spent her childhood years in a prestigious French Catholic Boarding school (Couvent des Oiseaux) in Saigon and Dalat, where she were taught all the "bonnes manieres" (social etiquettes). Even among native speakers, Alice speaks French with a noticeably beautiful Parisian accent.
Known for her enthusiasm and patience, Alice is fun yet serious, and loves helping her students achieve progressively higher levels of competence and appreciation for the French language.
Alice has developed effective techniques to help French students learn to communicate like a native, and to help more experienced speakers master the art of conjugation, grammar and orthography. As a result, her students (from elementary through graduate professional levels) quickly adopt a solid base and show great improvement in their French within a short period of time.
Alice has been the organizer of "Austin French Language" (with over thousand members) since 2008. She has taught small group classes, as well as "one on one", and received outstanding testimonials for her teaching.

I am a native speaker, and studied the Vietnamese language since first grade to 12th grade.
I taught many French colleagues in Paris and my French Club members here in Austin, Texas both speaking and writing proper Vietnamese since 1980. I love to help people to speak to other's people's heart.
I also was told that I am a Travel Agent by career, but a great Teacher by nature. I hope to leave something behind when I'm gone from this Earth.
