FR Review:
ABC Language Exchange specializes in laid-back but effective language instruction for busy adults. Unlike some programs that immerse students in conversation on day one, ABC provides its students with the necessary foundation in vocabulary and pronunciation before fully switching over to the language at hand. Spanish, Mandarin, French and Arabic are especially popular, with an additional 20 languages also on offer. ABC comes highly recommended as a good alternative to the "rather impersonal Berlitz" or "more rigid country-sponsored programs" such as Alliance Francaise or Cervantes.

The small classes are capped at nine and filled primarily with young professionals who are motivated to learn a new language, but don't necessarily want it to "dominate their free time." With few exceptions, the instructors at ABC are all native speakers and "very flexible" in integrating new students as a result of the rolling class schedule. For students with previous experience under their belts, the placement evaluation is easily carried out over the phone. Prices are recommended as "very competitive," starting at $165 for four-week course.

Representative Client Comments:
"Their teaching method is very comfortable--just the right amount of bookwork and conversation." "The instructors I've had have been exceptionally patient with beginners." "I've been recommending ABC to all of my friends." "The placement process is really easy."

Project Description & Comments:
We recommend ABC to all my friends for both adult and student language tutoring. The tutors are warm and highly competent. My son is at Buckley and needed a bit of extra time with a French speaker and to sharpen his grammar. His tutor was fun and friendly, and totally did the trick. The price was really fantastic too. We did about 10 lessons. They were flexible on timing too, unlike the more expensive, highway robbery tutors on the upper east side!
