Hear what some of our graduates have to say.

I would not have been able to obtain my language profile without the help of Sophie and her incredible team! Sophie Hubert built on my strengths and developed tools to help me overcome my weaknesses so that I was able to get the C in my oral testing that I needed for my job. Despite the pressure of the upcoming test, each lesson was enjoyable. Sophie’s team is incredibly professional, always prepared, and made me feel like I could achieve my goal. I believe that they are the best school in the business and would highly recommend The French Doctor. Merci beaucoup Sophie pour tout!

“I have taken quite a few sessions of French Training over the years. Of all the training I have participated in over the years, I have enjoyed the sessions through The French Doctor the most. I really enjoyed working with Sophie Hubert and Marine Decaillet. These instructors are always well prepared and they always use a lot of handout materials and exercises to help us learn, which I found very helpful. Due to COVID-19, on-line sessions are being offered for the Fall of 2020.”

Marlo, public servant
“Excellent service! French lessons catered to exam format. Good notes after each class on areas to work on. Helped target areas for improvement. Would recommend to others preparing for the government exam.”

Grace, public servant

“I’ve done various French training over the years working in the federal government, and this was by far the best. The instructor (Julie Saint-Mleux) was excellent, she facilitated the virtual learning very well, and the program activities were very well laid out and structured.”

Shannon, public servant
“The French Doctor made it easy for me to learn the most difficult aspects of the French language. I feel much more comfortable speaking in French and I owe it to this school. The teachers are fantastic and I love working with them. Special shout out to Marine and Julie – you both rock!”
