Les Twins, Laurent and Larry Bourgeois, reveal that Beyoncé taught them how to speak English.
“We didn’t speak English when we started to dance with Beyoncé and JAY-Z – at all,” Larry recently told People about the greatest lesson they’ve learned from Beyoncé to date. “She’s a great teacher. She [taught] me how to speak correctly.”
“[Then] they showed us how to live in New York,” he continued. “I was like, ‘Mommy, I made it!’ and she was like, ‘Come back home!’ and I was like, ‘No, no I’m staying here!’”
“[Beyoncé] really [made] us feel like we were unique,” he added.
Of course, dancing alongside the Queen B was just the beginning of their epic career. The dynamic duo, who currently has an Instagram following of 762K, has since gone on to groove with music superstars including Meghan Trainor and Missy Elliott. They’ve modeled for French haute couture fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Still, following their residency in the states (with Beyoncé’s support and guidance, of course), the French dancers revealed, “We [made] sure she was under our wing.”
“Definitely when someone puts this big name on us, we wanted to make sure she was so proud of us because we’re gonna give her like a thousand, million percent way more than what she’s thinking about us,” explained Laurent.
And while Bey may have shown the pair the ropes, introducing them to American culture and giving them an English lesson, the siblings have a few words of advice for the new mom when it comes to raising her newborn twins, Rumi and Sir.
“Do not dress them the same after two,” said Laurent. Larry added, “Do not treat one with more love than the other because they will always remember.”

Love her or hate her, Bey’s got a good heart.
