They Learn French With Us

I’m a French teacher with superpowers…

French teacher in Paris Yasmine Lesire

Coucou! / Bonjour! 

Je suis Yasmine from the podcast Le Français avec Yasmine. I started my language-teaching adventure in 2009 when I began offering private French classes while studying at university.

I soon realized that teaching is my passion, and after completing an MBA and developing a successful methodology, I decided to become a full-time French teacher. Now, I happily operate two schools in Paris and Brussels, as well as offer online classes. 

Every week, I publish a podcast episode about the French language and I send a juicy newsletter. My goal is to share with you my tips and tricks to skyrocket your French. You can receive my secrets by leaving your email address below. 

Master the French language. 

Do you dream of speaking more naturally in social settings, with confidence and fluency, and not like a baby? 

Unfortunately many French learners feel tired, overwhelmed and anxious because of past negative experiences. Discouraged by unstructured and amateur teachers or traumatized by toxic and mean work or school environments, they think their dream of French fluency is far-fetched…

If you’re … 


fed up with being nervous everytime you speak French, like you’re always tripping over your words


tired of being dependent on your partner, kids, or colleagues for translations


still struggling to understand native speakers and climb out of your learning plateau


feeling alone or abandoned in your studies

… don’t give up! It’s time to try a new methodology with I Learn French. With my team I’ve helped over 1,000 French students gain more confidence and proven that French is fun and fluency is possible — even if you think you don’t have a knack for languages.

We don’t just teach you French, we empower you to confidently speak and explore a new language.

There isn’t a better feeling than connecting with another person through communication — and imagine doing that authentically en français! We know that language learning is a marathon, and we’re here to help pave the way for your French learning journey, at your own unique rhythm.

At I Learn Frenchwe offer custom French classes either face-to-face or online, individually or in groups. We also offer a specific program for professionals and businesses who wish to improve their team’s language skills. There’s a reason why we were chosen by the prestigious OECD to provide coaching to Senior Managers and Executives. Rien que ça!

What Our Students are saying

“If you want to immediately make progress in your French speaking skills, then you must attend Yasmine’s courses!”

I was looking to take my skills to the next level. Working on my own, I made a little progress. But connecting to Yasmine’s recent Zoom course (Intermediate Level) propelled me forward in a way I couldn’t do on my own. And that’s because the course is a live environment where learning happens in the moment. And the unexpected funny glimpses into French culture are a treat! Yasmine knows how to teach French to adults who want to be able to begin helping themselves with the language sooner than later. She gives you a foundation, and you learn how to quickly build on top of it. And she has the patience of a saint!

I Learn French

“I’m finally starting to think in French!”

“I’ve tried to improve and learn French so many times, in different ways with different instructors. I’ve always been disappointed. I decided to take an intensive course at I Learn French during the pandemic, even though I was nervous from negative past experiences with mean French teachers. I was so happy I did. I love the way Yasmine designs the groups to be small and supportive. I actually looked forward to the lessons and had fun along the way (didn’t think that was possible!). Now, after her intensive course, I’m finally starting to think in French!”


Research Analyst

“I only wish I’d found her sooner…”

“After 10 years I have finally found my perfect French teacher. Yasmine is super-friendly, funny, interesting and patient and happily adapts to your own interests and the areas that you wish to focus on. I have done one-to-one classes and also the intensive course with a group and made so much progress in both environments. With Yasmine, learning French is actually very enjoyable, I only wish I’d found her sooner. Highly recommend.
