Every student is unique… so why should every French course be the same?
At FrenchExpress, we understand that our students have different requirements, not only in terms of their level of ability but also with regard to their objectives, learning preferences, and schedules. That’s why we’ve developed a “menu” of course adapted to your specific needs.

with native speakers
A native of Cannes with a master’s degree from the Paris-Sorbonne University, Sylvie Galli has been working with expats on the Côte d’Azur as a French teacher and cross‑cultural coach since 1990. Since founding FrenchExpress in 1994, she has taught countless private and business clients from all over the world. A fluent English speaker and natural networker, Sylvie has a passion for sharing her love of her native language and country with her international students, many of whom become fast friends. More than a teacher, Sylvie is a true educator who has spent years developing her own teaching methods and materials, and sharing this invaluable knowledge with her team. In her free time she adores cooking for friends, hiking and cycling in the mountains, singing in her choir, and drinking good rosé.
The newest member of the FrenchExpress team, Fanny Goudour was born and raised on the French Riviera. She completed her studies in communication, event management and language at the University of Montpellier, then spent a year backpacking in New Zealand. After returning to France, she worked in advertising and marketing roles before discovering her talent for teaching. Now fully trained in FrenchExpress methods, she especially enjoys working with younger students and children. When she isn’t with a student, you might find her writing short stories, going to the gym, or hiking in the mountains.
