Jean-Paul Setlak is the Founder (c.1981) and Director of Focus Language Training.   He was born in Paris, France, and is fluent in French, English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Punjabi, Hindi, and Italian.   He holds a Masters degree in French from ASU and a degree in Music from UCLA.   As a multilingual teacher and writer, he has developed language and cultural programs in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Hindi, Punjabi, and Chinese, and has traveled and lectured extensively in the United States and abroad. 

Jean-Paul has taught thousands of people how to speak and understand  new languages.  He has taught on beaches, in corporate offices, on factory floors, in trains in Asia, in chateaux in France and in formal classrooms.  In more than thirty years of teaching, he has extracted some crucial principles which successful language learners all seem to use.  To share those has been his primary goal.  He is also a portrait painter and a deep meditation teacher.

Focus Language has been successfully operating in the Phoenix Metro area since 1981.  It has recently opened a second location in Chicago, in 2010.  Its mission is to give students a comfortable and supportive environment where to learn as efficiently and quickly as possible.  Early on, Jean-Paul realized that most language learning systems were ineffectual and dull.   As a passionate student of learning he set out to create methods which would allow students to thrive. 

Whether we teach individuals or corporate students, our course scheduling is always flexible enough to accommodate busy individuals.  Communicating passion for languages and learning in general has remained our primary goals.
