With French lessons, increase your chances to find your dream job in a French-speaking country or here on the French Riviera, Nice, Marseille or Cannes.

Better business communication and networking opportunities

Speak to someone in a language they understand – that goes to their head. Speak to them in their own language – that goes to their heart. Build strong relationships with your colleagues or local business partners and never miss any networking opportunity. Speaking French will help you make quality contacts wherever you are in the French-speaking world or on the French Riviera and help your business thrive.

The French speaking world has so much to offer from one continent to the other! We’re also very proud of our own region of origin: the French Riviera. From the popular districts of Marseille to the colourful lemon festival in Menton, the French Riviera offers a vibrant cultural life. Wherever you are, films, concerts, festivals, exhibitions and so much more, they’re all yours to discover by learning French

Discover the French-speaking world

French is the language of France. But it’s also widely used in major European economies such as Luxembourg, Belgium and Switzerland. French can also be used around the world: in Africa, America, in the Caribbean islands, and the Pacific islands. in addition to English, French is your best travel companion, whether it be for tourism or business.

French Online

Digital tools offer so many new ways to learn languages. Most of them are extremely different from the approach used in traditional language schools and more efficient than most phone apps.

You’re about to enter a whole new world of possibilities

Learning a language with digital tools doesn’t mean you’ll be learning alone facing your computer. 

Do you find language learning overwhelming and need guidance and structure? Are you more autonomous and looking for solutions that suit your personality? Your tutor adapts to your needs and walks alongside as a guide, a coach or a teacher.


About us

Dear future learners,

It’s a pleasure to meet you all. 

My name is Vincent Gouedreau. I’ve been working as a French teacher for more than 10 years.

I became a teacher in Japan in 2007 and this experience soon became a passion. I love teaching French, its culture, history and traditions. 

I’m a fully qualified French teacher. In 2016 I passed the DAEFLE exam (Diploma in Teaching French as a Second Language) and got a certification to become a DELF (French proficiency test) examiner.

I’m currently preparing a thesis for my master’s degree in language pedagogy. I specialize in plurilingualism, a teaching approach that, among other things, helps students rely on the language they already know to learn new languages and learn more about their own. 

This approach will be very useful when we study together. Indeed, your mother tongue will help you learn in a more efficient way and give you more confidence and motivation using French.

Settling in a new country isn’t always easy. A new language to master, new cultural codes etc. You can count on my knowledge of the French social and business cultures to help you experience France in the best possible way. 

I’m familiar with digital tools. Indeed, when used in the right way, they can increase your learning efficiency and provide an infinite source of interesting resources.  

Finally, if you want to prepare for a French proficiency test, I’ll be happy to help you with the DELF exams. 

I’m looking forward to meeting you !

About us

Hello, bonjour à vous tous,

I am pleased to introduce myself to you.

My name is Thomas Pokoïk, I am French and Belgian. I was born and raised in Paris.

I have been working as a French teacher for foreigners since 2016, when I spent a year teaching in New York for the language school Fluent City. After I got back to Paris, I taught at the international organization OECD and for the school Language Studies International.

I hold a Masters degree (M2) in teaching French as a foreign language (FLE, in our jargon). I dedicated my research specifically to the topic of teaching French to expatriates settling in France.

My teaching style is inspired by my personal experience of living abroad (New York, but also Montreal and Athens), and my background as a learner. Indeed, in addition to English, I speak Modern Greek, some German, Serbian, and have notions of Arabic (Lebanese) and Russian.

My goals are to establish the best quality connection between the teacher and the student, and to pass my knowledge in a clear and interactive way. I also firmly believe that a language class improves communication, intercultural awareness, and personal growth.

Learning French is an interesting challenge. I have no doubt that I will adapt to your profile as a learner, to your needs, in order to build your progress in the most effective and positive fashion.

Lastly, let me add that I am experienced with exam preparation, such as TEF Naturalisation, to acquire French citizenship.

À très bientôt ! Sincèrement, Thomas

About US

Hi everyone, my name’s Jean-Baptiste Joachim and it’s a real pleasure to meet you. 

I’ve been working as a French teacher for 7 years. I started my career in Luxembourg in 2013 where I taught French at the American Embassy, in major companies such as Amazon or Traxys, as well as private classes 

I speak 11 languages and have always found the exploration of the learning process fascinating. After exploring several approaches, I now specialise in digital education and work with people from all over the world and all walks of life.

Learning with digital tools is different from learning in a classroom. Digital tools can really help you make the most of your learning experience and offer a wide variety of solutions to help you reach your goals. 

However, such a diversity of solutions can be puzzling. Having someone to walk you through your options can be a great asset. That’s why, my greatest professional joy is to empower all learners and help them develop their own strategies to learn French as efficaciously as possible.

I’m looking forward to meeting you all.
