EFNY instructors are bilingual or native French speakers and experienced professional teachers, with at least one diploma from a French-speaking country. We select all teachers for their ability to provide a stimulating environment that inspires children and encourages them to expand their knowledge of French. We assign teachers carefully to fit the age group of each class in terms of both personality and teaching experience.

We brief teachers to combine the best of the French and American approaches. They apply our rigorous curriculum, but also remain approachable and use an individualized teaching philosophy. All EFNY teachers have the ability to share the culture of French-speaking countries through projects and interactive methods.
