A caring and authentic online French school
Hello, I'm Manon
I am a native and certified French teacher and founder of the online French school: Ohlala French Course.
Why did I create Ohlala French Course?
Because a few years ago, I was in the same situation as you! Well, not with French, because it's my native language, but with English. I thought I had a decent level of English, then I decided to expatriate to an English-speaking country.
And then, I was brought down to earth!
Emigrating made me completely step out of my comfort zone and I thought I would progress very quickly by being in an English-speaking country. Except that... I was completely blocked.
Blocked by the fear of speaking a foreign language!
Impossible to find my words when I was talking to someone, even though they were right there in my head.
I was petrified at the idea of speaking in a language other than my mother tongue. I didn't even take the risk of talking with others anymore
And you know what? The day I really started to progress is the day I stopped being afraid of speaking a foreign language, afraid of making mistakes, afraid of looking ridiculous.
And that's why I created Ohlala French Course:
so you can speak French without being blocked

My team's and my mission? It's to boost your French learning!

You thoroughly deserve to achieve your French goals, to realize the projects you wish through this language, and above all, you deserve to flourish.

You just need a little help to get there! My team and I are here for that. To help you reach your goals in a simple, fast, and effective way.

Manon

My name is Manon, I am French and a certified French teacher. I am here to teach you how to speak real French, authentic French.

I am a "French 2.0 teacher" from the moment I decided to become a French teacher, my ambition has always been to teach French online. Passionate about online learning, I am constantly learning about new digital tools and interactive methods to be always at the top for my learners. I believe so much in e-learning that I have completed and passed my Master’s degree in French as a Foreign Language at distance and online. I will prove to you that learning French can be a lot of fun, even grammar. Yes, believe me, I make French grammar simple and fun! With me, you will learn the vocabulary and expressions that we really use in France. Not the vocabulary in textbooks that French people never use.

One of my favorite things is to share with you little cultural, linguistic or historical anecdotes about France or French-speaking countries, to have a story, meaning, and a little extra - behind each word and idiomatic expression.

Benoit

A teacher always ready to take on new challenges and to help you reach your goals in French. My name is Benoit. I am Belgian and live in Brussels, where I have been teaching History and Geography for 15 years. Passionate about pedagogy, I followed a Master's degree to become a French teacher.

I consider that learning a language is the heart of all learning and the starting point of a new knowledge of oneself and the world. As soon as I graduated, I started teaching French online. I find online teaching exciting because it really allows me to adapt to the learners' demands and help them reach their goals in an individualized way.

I love to give anecdotes about the use of certain words, make connections between language use, culture and history.

Sabrina

My name is Sabrina Lipoff and I’ve been teaching French for 8 years, in France and abroad. I am a versatile teacher since in addition to teaching French, I collaborate with international organisations, I create and correct the DELF and DALF exam, and I train other French teachers.

I work online since 2019, both for teaching and creating online trainings for teachers and learners. Therefore, I master the digital tools and I know how to use them efficiently to teach French. In my classes, I focus on speaking, in a relaxed, friendly and kind atmosphere. I can’t wait to meet you and guide you in your learning of the French language!

Alexandra

Always smiling and dynamic, my name is Alexandra (aka Alex) and I am passionate about the French language and culture

Global traveler at heart, I have taught French in Australia and Spain. For me, learning French should be a process of fun and wonder.

Understanding the attitudes, cultures, values, and ideas of a country's inhabitants, I have no trouble making contacts and surrounding myself with a wide range of multicultural people. I also consider learning about a foreign culture as important as learning the language itself.

I am also creative and like to look for interesting and eye-catching learning materials that create a friendly learning environment.

I am also passionate about travel and art.

Vanessa

My name is Vanessa, I am French and I live on the shores of Lake Geneva. Certified and experienced French teacher (over 12 years in education already!), I have had the opportunity to teach FLS (French as a Second Language) and FLsco (French as a language of schooling) in France, as well as FLE (French as a Foreign Language) abroad. I have notably taught French in an elementary school in Louisiana, USA, for 5 years.

I am a versatile teacher because in addition to teaching FLE, I am a school coach for children in difficulty, notably in MECS. I am a proponent of active learning ("learning by doing"). That's why I set up a variety of pedagogical activities, and ideally playful ones, on topics close to the learners.

I use teaching methods that have already proven themselves (CI (comprehensible input), TPR (total physical response), teaching proficiency through storytelling and storyasking, etc.) and I regularly take courses to stay up to date in my teaching. The most recent one allowed me to obtain a diploma in educational engineering in 2023. I am convinced that learning a language must be done in a dynamic, friendly, and fun atmosphere!

Interested in cultural discoveries, I have had the opportunity to study and/or work in Lithuania, Canada, Australia, and the United States. I am looking forward to meeting learners from all over the world and introducing them to France and the French language.

Babacar

Hello, my name is Babacar!

I come from Senegal, where I learned French and Wolof as my mother tongues. I moved to France nearly 20 years ago, and I did a Master's to become a French as a Foreign Language (FLE) teacher. I have since worked with a diverse audience (children, teenagers, adults, migrants), both in-person and online.

What I love most about this profession is the contact with people! I am very communicative and teach in a relaxed atmosphere. I believe that the most important thing for learning a language is feeling comfortable and having self-confidence!
