Fabienne and the Novexpat program are absolutely phenomenal! I came into the program as a complete beginner speaking no French at all, and even after 6 months I was able to go to Paris and communicate in shops, restaurants, etc. Having taken other more traditional (i.e. book-based) courses with other languages, I have to say my comprehension and ability to speak has progressed much more rapidly that I could have hoped. Also, Fabienne is a join to work with and learn from. Highly recommend taking any of the courses available!

I joined the French Booster program and it was really a rich learning experience! As I'm not a beginner it's not as easy to find courses or content that can help me get to that next level of living in France without stressing about French but I really improved a lot in 2 months. Even my friends and colleagues in France told me that they noticed a big difference. The Neo platform and the overall management of the course is super professional and well-prepared as well. Fabienne is always very kind and thoughtful. She goes above and beyond to make sure everyone gets the most from their time at the course. It was also very lovely to meet other students and find people that I can continue practicing together. I definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed my Novexpat program and found it invaluable! With my very motivated teacher, we followed a program mixed with discussion & formal courseware on their custom platform. The courses cover vocabulary, grammar, verbs & conjugation (in a fun way!) and also include day to day jargon as well as cultural soundbites on films, music etc to help you not only learn the language, but the culture too. :)

I really can't say enough good things about Novexpat. Over my ~5 years in Paris, I studied at multiple schools, meetups, etc. Novexpat was the best by far! Everything I was taught was super relevant, practical, and immediately useful. My only regret is that I didn't start studying with them sooner! If you want to get results quickly, study with Novexpat!

This program is perfect for a beginner. The structure and the pace are wonderful. I was a complete beginner, and I have made lots of progress. Lily is an amazing teacher. I can't recommend this program enough.

I learned SO much. I have been studying for 3 years and this was the most useful for everyday life. I heard about Novexpat through a friend. The first day I was given words one could use when meeting someone new. I thought how silly. I've been meeting new people for 3 years. But these phrases and words were not how I had been introducing myself. What a difference this class made. I felt more french and more confident with each lesson. Each week I learned useful everyday words and expressions that I used the minute I left the class. Fabienne is patient and kind and the material is clear and interactive.

Fabienne's lunchtime online conversation course is a great way to build upon and challenge your existing skills. The small group, friendly atmosphere, and online review tools are really helpful. Fabienne is extremely patient and well-prepared, and knows how to keep things on track to ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate. I highly recommend Novexpat!

I cannot recommend Fabienne's class more! She is a true delight. Moreover, the webapp NEO is useful and attractive with exercises you can do and do again, and again. Because of the pandemic, I took the course online, but have no regrets. I feel as though I received the full learning experience. Trust me, I have taken many French classes (in 3 different countries and 4 cities), and this is the only class I recommend. Enroll and Enjoy.

"Novexpat can offer French courses to suit all levels and they are led by very enthusiastic tutors. The learning methods can be tailored to suit individual learning objectives and include a wide range of sources. Whether you are looking for a structured or a more informal means of improving your proficiency in the French language, I would have no hesitation in recommending Novexpat. I have made a lot of progress, and highly increased my confidence. She is highly professional and has very thorough knowledge of French language."

A fun and interactive way to learn or improve your French. I enjoyed taking the 8-week long intensive French Booster with it's online platform that has many exercises to review what you learned in class. I also enjoy the small things like the weekly email French Expresso. Thank you Fabienne for a wonderful experience and for all of the help and guidance you've provided.

I have loved my one-on-one classes with Novexpat! I feel like Fabienne really understands my level and with one-on-one classes she really takes the time to make sure I understand the new material before moving on, or if I already know a part of the lesson we are able to move along faster than if in a classroom environment with many other students. She is extremely patient and allows me to ask as many questions as I wish and also makes me feel extremely comfortable and confident. The learning style behind Novexpat is very practical as the material you learn caters to everyday life and phrases/concepts you can put to use immediately. I also really enjoy the online app and learning platform to help study, it’s very convenient that it is specified to each individual lesson. I am so grateful that I discovered Novexpat!

This was a great experience for me. There are lots of things that can be tough when moving to a new country, and two of them are culture and language. This was a chance for me to learn about French culture while improving my language skills, while also learning with a patient and kind teacher.

I have been taking the course for several weeks and it is helping me improve my French so much. The online classes are small and the structure allows for you to practice what you are learning conversationally. For reference I am level B1. Fabienne is very patient and really knows how to teach! Highly recommend!!!

I participate in the French conversation classes which are an hour each for 2 days a week. You have the flexibility to choose Mon/Thurs or Tues/Fri. Fabienne is a great teacher and hosts a class which has a good balance of structured learning in 'every day' French (focusing on a specific topic each time) and giving us all an opportunity to talk in class. All in all very enjoyable and practical. Highly recommended!

The french booster program with NovExpat was excellent. During the duration of the course we were taught lots of French idiomatic expression used in daily life for different topics, which not only helps to communicate better, but to understand as well. The Neo platform is the best, as you can learn and practice at your own. The classes are very dynamic. The groups are small. Thank you Fabienne and keep up the amazing work!

Fabienne and the NovExpat team are changing the way people learn French. Her methods go far beyond teaching grammar and conjugations; they teach you the living language - that which is most relevant to adapting and integrating into the French culture. I can’t say enough about how much and how quickly I learned - and how enjoyable the lessons have been! I see Fabienne for private lessons now but the French Booster course was so good, I plan to take it a second time!

As a veteran teacher myself, I love how the lessons were structured in Novexpat. I always felt like the learning was focused on useful and relevant material. In addition, I'm a mom of two toddlers so the flexible scheduling of the courses (during naptime!) was super helpful. I have made a lot of progress in my French language skills and I'm excited to take another course with Novexpat.

Very positive experience. The course is really well structured. My main objective was to improve my oral French in normal day to day situations. This was extremely well covered. The classes are divided by subject which makes them very interesting and immediately useful. I could feel my confidence to speak French increase with every lesson. The teacher, Fabienne, is amazing and the duration of the lessons is perfect with a short break and lots of practice time. The platform Neo is also full of resources and available during and after the course. Extremely happy!

Learning French turns out to be a travel adventure. Fabienne’s classes are shaped with a definite structure that covers all the relevant subjects I want to be able to communicate about, but she makes it feel flexible, and adapted to those of us in the room. It’s been really fun, and funny to be there—lots of humor and popular culture and learning about French movies and Parisienne mindset. It’s the kind of class you go to, and then want to keep studying with her. She’s always in good spirits and very encouraging.

I really loved my French course. It was useful and fun with a structured approach where I actually felt like I learned something every class. I was also able to put it to use immediately and I also recognized the phrases in every day life immediately as well. I could relate to my colleagues at work better and gave me more confidence to speak. Highly recommend!

I absolutely recommend this program! - it is not only a French course, it is also a discovery trip to understand better French culture, you learn a lot of interesting things along the way! Fabienne is super energetic and generates a very positive vibe in the group! I did not find especially remarkable the tool while on the course, but once we finished, it has been great to be able to review the vocabulary, to go through the recommended material that I did not have the chance to explore then... Congrats Fabienne & Pierre for such a nice program!

I followed the FrenchUp program. The combination of online courses and face to face (on Zoom) teaching worked perfectly for me. Plus, the program was very flexible, and the teacher adapted the courses to my level. It was what I needed to build up confidence and upgrade my French knowledge.

I am very pleased that I took the 8 week French Booster course with Novexpat. I really enjoyed the structure of the small-group participatory lessons, the accompanying website and homework, my classmates, Fabienne (the teacher) and of course the results: greater confidence not only in written and spoken French but also tips and tricks for fitting in to life in Paris.

'Classes with Fabienne are incredibly useful and pleasant at the same time. Weekly conversation classes give just the right amount of push to help even the people on busy schedules to gain confidence. Through-out the well structured lessons one has the occasion to put French into practice and hold conversations of various lengths and complexities with like-minded people. Novexpat founders and their team are very open and warm. The diligent and vibrant team, while putting relentless effort in always keeping-up with the innovative methods to cater for the enthusiasts of French culture, gives precious cultural insights for a swift and smooth integration.

I really enjoyed learning french with Fabienne (Novexpat)! The conversation courses, they provide, are very well structured, topics explained in an easy way! Learning new phrases and taking them into a practise directly during the course made them to sit in my head:). Friendly and enjoyable learning with a great teacher! Courses were even more effective thanks to the teachers skills to master “zoom”and their interactive french learning web (Novexpat) for practicing learned topics afterwards. Great job for the teacher and the students! Hope to see you in 2021! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻

I recommend Novexpat for those who want to learn living French! Fabienne taught us not only grammar but also many expressions that are frequently used on a daily basis among French. This helped me a lot and boosted my French level a lot :) Worth trying!
