Mme Dorothy Toirac was my French teacher at Grace College 1968-69. If I speak near native French today, it's because of her teaching and inspiration. I adored her. Never did a finer French teacher walk the face of this earth. She was tough as nails with the highest standards. A most remarkable woman, and I so regret that she passed before I could tell her these things. I was in high school with her fine son Tom. As I call, they spent most of the 1950s in France as missionaries. Mme Lewis, the only native speaker in Warsaw, said Mme Toirac spoke as a true native.
