You want to communicate in impeccable French, but grammar, conjugation, vocabulary, and spelling are a real puzzle?

You often use Anglicisms because your vocabulary is limited. You have never been taught the rules of grammar, conjugation, and spelling, so you struggle to apply them in everyday life. Even though you find French to be a beautiful language, you are discouraged because you find it too complicated and have given up practicing it, both orally and in writing. Your lack of mastery and confidence hinders you in your professional activities, and even worse, it tarnishes the image that others have of you.

The passé composé and its past participles are an obstacle in your written productions.

You have difficulty transcribing heard words.

Your employer does not encourage you to seek training to obtain the required level of French in your career.

 


 

Are you struggling to speak proper French? Your children's future opportunities to join an enriched French program after primary school are at stake. Your teenagers have insightful ideas to express, but their grammar, conjugation, and spelling gaps are holding back the quality of their writing.

The French language offers countless ways to express oneself, but you find yourself facing a blank page every time you need to write, overwhelmed by the fear of making mistakes. Consequently, your confidence dwindles, and your French proficiency deteriorates with each passing day.

You possess a basic understanding of French, but years of predominantly speaking English during your career have caused you to forget certain French expressions. You long to reclaim those idioms, proverbs, and sayings to bring vibrancy back into your communications.

Pronunciation challenges undermine your self-assurance when interacting with a French-speaking audience or your professional circle.

As a native French speaker, you rely on automatic correctors to compensate for your grammatical and spelling deficiencies, even though you're aware they only address common mistakes. Consequently, using them leaves you with a negative self-image. Moreover, you feel a sense of dissatisfaction, fully aware that you're not progressing in your mother tongue.

Due to your insufficient language skills, you've had to pass up on positions that require strong French proficiency, hindering your ability to advance your career or secure a higher salary. Your professional growth has stalled, and in some cases, you've even faced demotion by one or two levels.

But fear not! There is a solution. With our comprehensive and tailored language program, we can help you regain your fluency and confidence in French. Our experienced team of language experts will guide you through grammar, conjugation, vocabulary expansion, and precise pronunciation. We offer interactive exercises, engaging discussions, and practical writing tasks that will sharpen your skills and elevate your French to a whole new level.

Don't let language barriers hinder your personal and professional success any longer. Join us today, and unlock a world of opportunities for yourself and your children. Embrace the beauty of the French language and watch as it opens doors to new horizons.

Enroll now, and take charge of your linguistic destiny!

 


 

Meeting the needs of those who want to master the French language for personal or professional purposes is my mission!

I have designed this training rigorously and progressively to allow you to gradually assimilate the fundamentals of the French language. As you progress in your learning, you will discover that the puzzle pieces will gradually come together.

Here is my program: From theory to practice

My principle is that in order to play, you must first and foremost learn the rules of the game.

For French, it's exactly the same. With my training, you will learn the basic rules of grammar, conjugation, vocabulary, and spelling through explanatory video capsules followed by interactive activities.

Furthermore, I use mnemonic techniques, which means processes that allow associating visual or auditory cues with previously acquired knowledge to better memorize new information. A mnemonic aid, if you will.

In addition to using memory, I also appeal to the five senses of human beings: sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste. That's my pedagogy: using everything nature has given us to facilitate and simplify learning as much as possible.

French, a gentle, romantic, and musical language

But what also matters to me is to transmit my passion for the language of Molière to you. Learning French, yes, but enjoying it at the same time is even better! That's why I have added two cultural modules to my training: one to discover expressions, proverbs, and sayings...; the other to study song lyrics.

Presence... at a distance!

Even though my training is 100% self-paced to allow you to juggle with your personal and professional constraints, you are not alone. I will accompany you throughout your learning journey. You will have 12 hours of privileged access to me through two forms of collaborative activities.

Question/Answer sessions

To allow you to address your inquiries, you will have access to me for one hour, every two weeks, in virtual and group sessions. Each person will be able to ask their questions in turn. Each collective intervention will advance each one of you individually.

"Bubbles and Blabla"

Every two weeks (alternating with the question/answer sessions), we will virtually exchange in a group to allow you to practice speaking and work on your pronunciation. This way, you will be able to reuse the learned concepts and interact with other learners. I will play the role of the facilitator.

At the end of the training...

You will master the basics of grammar, conjugation, and spelling du niveau découverte (A1), and you will be able to hum French songs.

You will be proud of yourself and communicate confidently in French!

Parlez-vous français ?

Le niveau Découverte (A1)

A method to follow, lesson after lesson, from A to Z, in order to discover and assimilate the fundamentals of grammar, conjugation, vocabulary, and spelling of the first level of the CEFR.

In this course, I will teach you the basic rules of the French language, lesson after lesson, through video capsules, interactive exercises to reinforce your knowledge, tests to assess your progress, and thematic sheets to enrich your vocabulary. The last two modules will focus on the cultural aspect du niveau découverte.

Le niveau Découverte (A1)

 

All the educational resources you need to learn to communicate confidently in impeccable French.

Here are some numbers that speak for themselves:

In Quebec, over 40% of students fail in spelling at the end of secondary school. And in France, the situation is not much better: in 40 years, over the entire duration of their education from elementary to middle school, a student has lost 520 hours of French. It's not surprising that in 2021, French students at the end of primary school make twice as many mistakes as they did 34 years ago. Even worse, the number of students making more than 25 errors has multiplied by 4.

But do you have any idea of the main source of these difficulties?

It's grammatical spelling: the rules of agreement between the subject and the verb, the agreements in the noun group, the agreements of the past participle.

So, if you also have difficulty in French, if you want to learn or relearn the basic rules of French, I have THE solution for you...

I have invested over $40,000 to train myself as a teacher, to equip myself with technological and pedagogical tools in order to launch my online French course platform.

I have worked for several years in the international network of Alliance Française, spent several months designing exercises and activities, building my content, recording videos, and developing assessment tests.

I present to you the fruit of my discoveries and my experience as an expert in French language teaching in this high-quality and truly affordable program!

Who am I … ?

... a French woman from France, well settled in Quebec!

As far as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a language teacher. When my children were in school, I always helped and supported them with their homework. I even provided tutoring for some of their friends who were struggling with learning.

Originally from southern France, I immigrated to Quebec twice. But before my second immigration, I decided to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher. I underwent distance training for two years with the Alliance française in Paris.

My dream was to become a teacher of French as a foreign language and settle in Ottawa to teach the language of Molière to English-speaking federal employees.

Since 2014, I have been living in Gatineau, very close to Ottawa, and I teach French to federal employees, children, and immigrants.

In 2016, drawing from my two immigration experiences, I created La Passerelle. My mission is to ease the cultural shock for new immigrants settling in Quebec, share my experience as a former immigrant with them, and provide them with all the tools for successful integration.

Through l'Académie Française, my online French language course platform, I am available to physically welcome newcomers according to my high standards of quality. My training and expertise are now accessible to a larger number of people, allowing me to be more productive, help more people, and live my passion.

When my students fulfill their lifelong dream or thrive professionally, I feel a sense of accomplishment. It is what drives me, makes me passionate, and fills me with joy. It is my vocation!

Testimonials ...


Some of my clients have realized their dream of permanently settling in Canada because they obtained the required number of points in French from the Ministry of Immigration. My younger clients have enrolled in French immersion school programs. My clients who are federal civil servants have maintained their French proficiency and either retained their positions or received a career promotion.

J’ai beaucoup aimé les méthodes pédagogiques de Delphine

Elles étaient exactement ce dont j’avais besoin. Presque toutes les activités ont été à l’oral, et grâce à ça, mon français s’est vraiment amélioré ! J’avais de très nombreuses occasions de m’exprimer, ce qui était vraiment important pour moi.

My son wished Delphine was his French teacher at school.

My son was tutored by Delphine during his last year of elementary school. He wasn’t feeling challenged enough at school with his French classes and we wanted to give him the best possible chance of being accepted into the French Enriched program at his junior high school.
Delphine worked with us to understand our goals and timelines. She structured her tutoring sessions to areas that would be assessed in the entrance exam. They worked on grammar, vocabulary and oral communication. He was given exercises to practice each week. When he had questions or if there was something he didn’t understand Delphine was patient and went over explanations until it clicked. She was very organized with her sessions and my son felt challenged and supported. All their sessions were done over zoom which was convenient. 
In the end he succeeded in being accepted into his French program. But what really impressed me was how much he seemed to enjoy the tutoring sessions. He had a great rapport with Delphine and used to tell me he wished she was his French teacher at school. We definitely saw the progress in his learning and he’s been doing very well in junior high school so far. We really enjoyed our experience and would recommend Delphine to anyone looking to improve their French

Delphine a une pédagogie spéciale pour expliquer la grammaire et la conjugaison.

J’ai suivi des cours pendant un an avec Delphine, huit heures par semaine. Elle est très gentille, très professionnelle et très qualifiée. Elle m’a enseigné le français et la culture française.

Delphine by far was the best teacher that I had.

I have taken a number of part-time French courses as a public servant with the Federal government. Delphine by far was the best teacher that I had. The highlight of my week was always attending French classes with her. I could always see how excited her students were to learn from her. Teaching comes naturally to her and she knows how to engage and immerse her students in the language. Excellent French teachers don’t stay for long teaching part-time courses at the Federal government. I count myself lucky to have been taught by Delphine. With her as my teacher I was able to build a solid base to continue to learn the language. I highly recommend Delphine for all of your French teaching needs.
