Modern Languages

Susi F., Ph.D., Grey Fox Tutor and native Italian speaker.

Grey Fox provides instruction in a wide range of modern languages, including the more standard (French, Spanish, Italian, German, Mandarin) and the niche (Irish Gaelic, Mongolian, Navajo, Yiddish). As with our classical, ancient, and archaic languages, we encourage our students to approach modern languages in a dual fashion, focusing equally on conversation and grammar. Too often modern languages are taught with a nearly 100% conversation-based approach, despite the fact that students never attain true fluency without a clear understanding of the language's grammar and its similarities too and differences from English.

Languages:

  • French
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • German
  • Modern Greek

And many others, from Arapaho to Quechua to Welsh.
