Passionate teachers to help you give the best of yourself at Ohlala French Coffee
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
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.
Students convinced and confident to speak French thanks to my approach.
I really like the classes and it helps me a lot. Teacher Manon prepared the class with different clear and fun materials. :-) I hope I can do more classes in the future.
I like learning with Manon because it's more than learning, it's also developing my self-esteem and strengthening my self-confidence to speak more freely.
The combination of the activities, the visual / graphic elements and the structured program make Ohlala French Course an ideal place to learn, grow and improve. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and extra care that has gone into the production of the course materials.
I really like the Ohlala French Course because I was able to start speaking in a short time. The course topics are always interesting and the atmosphere is conducive to speaking. Manon always helps you, she tries to understand you and you can always ask her questions. The material used for the courses is of very good quality. In class we work on all aspects of the language: speaking, listening, reading and grammar. I am very happy to work with Manon, because I have obtained excellent results in a short period of time!
Manon is an excellent teacher! She is innovative, creative and spontaneous in her method to meet any individual objective. She makes sure that any goal you expect from the course is achieved as quickly and efficiently as possible! Her extremely professional background has allowed me to pass a complete level in a very short time. I highly recommend her!
I absolutely recommend Ohlala French Course ! Great instructional materials; each lesson is well-planned and designed.
Manon has a nice balance of grammar lessons and conversation to practice the lessons. She was invaluable in helping me prepare for a RDV with a government office in Paris.
What I like at Ohlala French Coffee is learning about other cultures when I speak with students in other countries and also the knowledge of different accents in French by other students. I am very satisfied with the course, I have noticed that when I speak on the phone with French people, it has become much easier and more common.
I was really struggling to speak French and I didn't have confidence in myself. After each session, I feel better and I need to speak more French! For me, it's like medicine. What I like about Ohlala French Coffee is the teacher, the fact that I speak in French for 45 minutes, I join people from every corner of the world (it's beautiful), the corrections and notes we get after class, the themes of each week.
Before the program, I was reluctant to speak French with non-French speakers. I thought it wouldn't be useful. Mainly because you can't correct yourself. But in fact I find it useful. It gives me the confidence to speak, to improve my fluency and I realize that it is not necessary to be corrected all the time. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be understandable. What I like about Ohlala French Coffee is the combination of activities and conversation sessions. The conversation guide pushes me to go into topics in more depth, I have to use vocabulary and grammar in a more complex way. I need to get out of my comfort zone.
I wanted to improve my French and I especially needed to get used to speaking and listening in French, but I also needed grammar and vocabulary lessons. So Ohlala French Coffee is perfect for me! It has everything. It's a complete course, there are grammar and vocabulary lessons, new written exercises every week and the most important thing for me, a lot of happiness during the conversation every week. It's a perfect French immersion without going to France. The price for all this together is incomparable and very affordable. And no problem if one week you can't go to two lessons, there are still two! It's fantastic! The teacher always answers all doubts and questions in class or on the private Facebook group. It helps a lot in learning.
I was afraid to speak French and I joined Ohlala French Coffee of course to improve my French. And finally, I speak more with my French friend (I have no more excuses!) What I like at Ohlala French Coffee is the possibility to speak for 50 minutes and the intercultural exchange.
I really like the resources shared on the member space of Ohlala French Coffee and doing the conversation with people who come from all parts of the world. I restarted studying French three months ago, and now I am more confident when I speak with someone, even if I do not have the opportunity to practice oral outside of class.
