The French Classes for Expats are designed for expats owning a property in France or planning to buy a vacation home there. The lessons are suitable for learners who have basic knowledge of the French language or who are advanced learners. If you are unsure about your French level, please do not hesitate to contact me to have it assessed during the French introductory session.


Many learners have trouble understanding French speakers as they speak quickly, use many contractions and have a specific vocabulary that you cannot find in French textbooks. To respond to such demands, each class has been crafted to focus exclusively on real-life situations that you are likely to experience while living in France.


The lessons include many activities and exercises on how to order at a local French market, how to call your internet supplier, how to deal with problems with your French bank and other useful and fun scenarios. You will eventually understand fast-French conversations based on different situations. 


As each activity is crafted based on your level of French and specific needs, the lessons will bring you concrete results. You will eventually gain confidence, become familiar with common French structures and learn to understand native French speakers.

The objective of the French lessons for Expats is to make you familiar with the French language spoken by native speakers in real-life situations today. You will progressively understand fast-French conversations and learn the correct structures used by native speakers.

My name is Tanguy and I am a qualified French teacher.

Being a native French speaker, I was born near Paris and I grew up in more than 12 cities throughout France. 

I completed my BA in linguistics in Birmingham, United Kingdom and an MA in linguistics and phonetics at the University of Toulouse, France.

I have taught French to students at a number of prestigious institutions such as the University of Birmingham, business schools, international companies and aviation schools. 


With my 6 year’s teaching experience, I have also helped British and American expats improve their French language skills to comfortably settle down in France. They have contacted me to help them improve their listening and speaking skills (ordering at a French market, understanding fast-French conversations in real-life situations or getting used to French speakers with local accents).
