👩‍🎓 Ellie Louis 
French Professeur + Founder

Imagine the transformation from being embarrassed to speak French to becoming confident and appreciated for your skills.

At 21, I faced that very challenge when my school French didn't work in my real life in France. Somewhere along the line those shaky, scary first steps turned into a determination to be confident in the language and be accepted as a local. And it happened!

Years later, I wondered; "What if the way I had learnt could work for other people too?" Then the opportunity came up to teach a French evening class.

The reaction and results took me completely by surprise. My new adult learners proved that they could all master French and be confident using it. They were learning with me in an English secondary school evening class. And now I see that same passion, enthusiasm and determination everyday I teach online. It's thrilling to hear how doing this one thing so positively affects people's confidence in so many ways.
