Learning a second language is a big challenge which most people will have to face in this day and age.

Whether you need to learn French to improve your day to day life in your new adopted country or to stay competitive on the professional market, it can be a wonderful, mind-opening experience when done with the right teacher.

Imagine improving your French with a highly trained and dynamic bilingual coach who understands the challenge you are facing because they have been in your shoes before.

All our coaches are bilingual (French/English) so there are no awkward ‘‘lost in translation’’ moments.


Online learning is the best way to improve a new language.

It is especially convenient for busy professionals and full-time parents who have a limited amount of time to spend on language classes.

Here are the main reasons why our clients enjoy studying online with us


  • Work with a great bilingual teacher no matter where you live!
  • Lessons can be easily scheduled via our private online scheduling system.
  • Lessons can be rescheduled within 24 hours notice.
  • Lessons can take place even if you must travel for business, which offers more regularity to the learning process.

Maximum Efficiency

  • No time or energy lost in public transport to get to the lesson.
  • No books, notepads or pencils needed!
  • No photocopies, homework or texts lost/forgotten on the way to the lesson.
  • You can work until the very last minute prior to the start of the lesson and resume your tasks right after the lesson.

Focus & Motivation

  • Private lessons on Zoom eliminate most common distractions which occur during face-to-face lessons.
  • Online learning creates a more focused environment for the participant (especially when using headphones to block all surrounding noises.)
  • The use of online tools (blog & newspapers’ articles, audio and videos exercises) enhances your interest and increases your motivation to attend the lessons more regularly.
  • You are much more likely to complete your assigned homework online than on paper.

Better, Faster Results

  • Online learning offers better and faster results than with traditional face-to-face lessons.
  • Several major companies use online teaching services like ours to ensure maximum results for their employees.

Our outstanding language coaches are here to help you unlock your potential with solutions adapted to your learning style and priorities.

French lessons with Isabelle is the right choice if you need flexibility, if you want to adapt the class to meet your exact needs, and if you want to enjoy your class! I had no experience with online learning before and was a bit skeptical about it all. It ended up being one of the best decisions I recently made! Following the recent birth of my child, I contacted Isabelle because I had to prepare for an important job interview in French. Not only did she prepare me well for the interview with regards to the language requirements, but she also acted as a coach, motivating me and building my self-confidence over the 10 classes we had together. The best thing? I finally got the job I was aiming for!

Isabelle is a superb teacher of the highest professional standards.  I approached Isabelle to provide private, custom tailored business French language development lessons and she exceeded my expectation.  She was able to focus on my immediate mandate to improve my written French skills while always remaining alert to any gaps in my grammar requiring attention and thus dynamically incorporating revision of such into our lessons.  I greatly appreciated her charm and presentation skills in delivering the lessons which provided for achieving measurable progress through the course while always remaining stimulating.  Particularly interesting was her ability to deliver learning material remotely via Skype, fluidly integrating extensive online resources, which allowed me to continue with the lessons despite my constant travels.  I highly recommend Isabelle as a teacher and connoisseur of languages.
