Salut !

Moi, c’est Géraldine Lepère.

I’m a French woman (Paris-born, now living in the Alps) with a passion for sharing my love for French language and culture! I started Comme une Française in 2012 and have since helped more than 6,500 alumni learn to confidently understand and speak real, modern French through my paid programs – not to mention taught more than 8 million French learners through my weekly YouTube lessons.

Born to a French father and Mexican mother, I know the challenges and desire to blend into life in a foreign country. After two years of living in the UK, I knew that going beyond just grammar is essential to fitting in and feeling at home wherever you are.

If you love France and French life, I’m here to guide you, answering questions you wouldn’t dare ask about anything and everything French, so join me for learning and fun.

I love languages, and I wanted to improve my french from high school with real, spoken french so I could travel abroad. I loved having the insight of a native french speaker and I was surprised by all the little subtleties about spoken french. Instead of learning lists of vocabulary, it’s more like nuances that a non-native would take a while to pick up on.

I am not afraid to talk in French. She really pushes people and gives the nerve to start the conversation in a foreign language. It is okay to mess up too. Nobody is perfect!
