Live French is about teaching the French language and culture differently

Hélène Phelipon, Live French

"I am Hélène, your trainer and coach for your immersion course. I was born in Angoulême, in the heart of the Cognac region."

I have been living in Paris for many years, where I work for big international companies. I am a passionate and experienced French and bilingual professional language trainer and coach with a Masters in linguistics, culture and training. For almost 20 years, I have been introducing students and professionals to the French language and culture in offices, university classrooms and real-life settings in France and in the US. I attach a particular importance to culture and the subtleties of intercultural differences in the teaching of a foreign language.

I believe that by experiencing culture in real situations you greatly expand your learning capabilities!

Whether you love history, architecture, gourmet food or good wine, come discover the beauty of France’s Cognac region while getting a healthy dose of French language training and exciting cultural discoveries!
