What our clients say about us

Emily Kerr

I would highly recommend Griottes Polyglottes for French language classes. I had an opportunity to take an online class with Ingrid, and I found that she teaches in a fun and practical format. If you are a professional, manager or newcomer who wants to speak English and French fluently, then look no further.

Lina Alvarez

I’ve been learning French for 15 years and always had trouble gaining confidence speaking it. Ingrid’s classes are super fun. She always adds new games that make the group feels like friends hanging out. My confidence increased to the point where I speak French easily during work meetings.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't feel comfortable with improv or role-playing, can I participate?

Yes, our improv activities and classes are really easy. They require ZERO improv experience. NADA! You will be in a safe environment with a small and supportive group.

What English or French level do I need to join the classes?

Our language learning sessions are for upper-beginner (A2) to intermediate (B2).

If you are unsure about your level, book a short assessment call with Ingrid here.

Will I have enough time to speak and practice during a drop-in session?

We keep our groups small between 5 to 10 people for drop-in classes so everyone has multiple opportunities to interact and practice.

If you want more sessions, thus more time to speak and practice, you can check our weekend intensives or our 3-month program.

Do you offer private 1-on-1 sessions?

Unfortunately, we do not offer private sessions. Our classes are made for groups to build new habits, improve your skills, and interact with other people in a safe and fun environment.
