He offers a useful and flexible mix of reading comprehension, ear training, and conversational dialogue, which is exactly what I was looking for. Plus, he's a friendly, patient, good-natured fellow, which makes the learning experience all the more pleasant. I would definitely recommend Pierre and On Site Languages."

"Pierre provided on-site services at DHL Global Forwarding in 'beginner' French classes for myself and three of my work colleagues. While I had no prior French Language experience I couldn't believe how much I actually learned in such a short period of time. Even my colleagues in Montreal where thoroughly impressed with my pronunciation which definitely can only be attributed to Pierre's persistence. His communication style, patience and persistence really paid off. I look forward to future classes with him."

I believe very strongly that On Site Languages is fortunate to have such a professional, caring, and innovative techniques that help students understand that learning French is much more than grammar exercises and comprehending Molière.

..."I feel as if I've been trying to become fluent in French for longer than Napoleon ruled.  Now, with "On Site Languages", I have finally made real progress.  I'm starting to converse with my colleagues in Montreal and can follow along at meetings.  I've also made a great impression on my Parisian in-laws who are astounded at my improvement."

"After 4 years of working together, Pierre Gilbert has reawakened the francophone within me. His forward-thinking customized approach is truly tailored to the student's needs. Whether working on written, comprehension, reading or grammar exercises, Pierre always finds creative ways to break through to one's true potential in a fun and challenging environment.

I can honestly say that my time with Onsite Languages has given me greater insight into the French language than the years of conventional schooling that preceded it.

I cannot thank Pierre enough for his patience and look forward to working with him in the years to come.

Kudos to OSL."

"I have received instruction from Pierre Gilbert for one year, in which time we have vastly improved my French language skills. My schedule demands flexibility and a program that is designed to my needs. Pierre has been outstanding in this regard. I recommend his service unreservedly."

Pierre Gilbert taught staff in our office  French for 5 years. During this time he showed a remarkable understanding of the adult learner. He was able to develop courses for a variety of staff with different job requirements and language abilities.

The course was fun-sometimes the high point of the week. Pierre was always well prepared and used various media in interesting and entertaining ways.

He enabled me to make up for weaknesses in my knowledge of the language. He corrected documents I had prepared for my work and modified the course as the requirements of my job changed over time.
