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.
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!
What students think of Ohlala French Coffee:
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.
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.
I decided to join Ohlala French Coffee for the opportunity to practice 3-4 times a week. The quality and friendliness of the students is really amazing. I had enjoyed the private classes, so I already knew that there would be good material prepared. I love Ohlala French Coffee for the interaction with other students and the lessons learned along the way. For me, it's like a continuation of the habits I had developed before, and an added motivation.

I decided to join Ohlala French Coffee because I lack practice in French. And I think that with Ohlala French Coffee I have many opportunities to improve my French. Also, I like the structure and the method of this course. It is possible to practice 5 to 6 times a week and in my opinion it is a good way for people who want to speak better. I like the variety of topics, as well as the structure of this course. I think this course helps me to gain confidence in speaking French.
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.
