My Language Exchange is the effort of Helene Cormier and Dan Yuen to help people all over the world learn, practice and become fluent in a foreign language.
The two founders met in early 2000 when Dan was a registered student in Helene’s Language Exchange Workshops in Montreal, Canada. Dan was trying to become fluent in French and found Helene’s workshops to be more useful than anything else he had tried before. This experience convinced Dan of two things. One, language classes and immersion alone are not sufficient to become fluent in a foreign language. Two, language exchange practice with a teacher is probably the most effective way to bridge the gap between language classes and communicating in the real world.
