My name is Nia (Joania). I'm a passionate French Teacher and Language Coach from Paris.

Languages are my passion. I'm a native French speaker, but I also speak English, Spanish and Lingala. I'm currently learning West African Pidgin !

I would be very happy to help you take your French to the next level.

So let's learn together!"

What are my students saying?

Maria, Honduras

"I truly enjoyed the classes I got the opportunity to attend". It was a fun and educating experience I will always remember. They helped me to improve my pronunciation, grammar, and confidence while speaking French. I recommend these online classes with Nia to people, they will definitely help anybody in their French learning journey"

Monick, Brazil

"The course was great. The teacher makes us speak French all the time and she speaks in French too. The class is very dynamic, you don't get bored."

Suzy, USA

this class is great for helping with proper pronunciation and learning rules of French. I am learning so I can speak with confidence the next time I travel to France for my finance and my wedding. Nia's class has helped me improve a lot in just a matter of weeks. I am looking forward to seeing the progress I make months from now. She makes it interesting with games and dialogs to share with you and her as the teacher, so you get a good feel for real life conversations and examples.

  • Is it possible to learn a language as an adult?
    Yes, of course! I've learned lingala as an adult in 6 months and I really enjoyed it! Moreover, the majority of my students are adults. I can't wait to share with you the different techniques that I use for my students and myself to learn languages!
  • Is French difficult to learn?
    It depends on your native language. If you already speak English, French isn't that hard: there's a lot of similarities regarding the vocab and the structure. Moreover, there's a lot of free resources, movies and series that you can use to improve your French. I would be very happy to help you find them!
  • I want to improve my speaking. Is it the Speak French Café going to help me speak better French?
    Yes, of course! You can suscribe to our 1-on-1 classes (all levels) to practice your French and learn strategies that will help you speak better French.
  • How long will it take until I get fluent in French?
    No one can determine in advance how long it will take to get fluent in French. The answer to this question depends on 4 main factors: _your current level _your mindset _your learning strategy _your learning pace But there's a good news: each of these factors can be improved!
  • What if I'm a shy/introvert person?
    There's no problem with being an introvert person. Sometimes it can even be a good point: I've noticed that most intoverts are good listeners and an empathetic people and these qualities are very useful if you start learning a language and a new culture. If you feel like your shyness prevents you from speaking, don't worry. I would be happy to offer you a language coaching session (limited spots) to help you overcome this fear. You will be very proud of yourself!
  • Can I have a trial lesson?
    Of course! You can book a Trial lesson here!

    There's a lot of advantages! You can learn anytime, anywhere. You can learn with a native teacher from Paris. Classes are fun and interactive. Plus, it's safer: you have no physical contact which is a good point during this Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Which platform do you use for classes?
    Zoom. It's really effective, you can create a free account and get access to the video recordings of the classes if needed. But it you're not familiar with it, don't worry, I will help you get started!
  • Can I start for free?
    Yes of course! If you are interested in taking one-on-one classes with me, you can book a free call (limited spots)!
