What's Play with French.?
Play with French is a playful way to learn a language.
We are language teachers and professional actors & we use acting games and exercises to get you talking and connecting in your new language.
You don't need any acting experience!

Our brain learns best when it's in play mode
and a language is learnt best through real social interactions.

Bonjour! Moi, c'est Pauline!
I come from Belgium and French is my mother tongue.
I studied French literature, cinema, theatre, arts and performance studies at University.
I have been acting for 12 years, having trained professionally both in Paris and London
and I have been teaching French and Drama for 5 years now.
Acting and playing are great ways to learn a language. With fun and movement, words that used to be foreign become more familiar!
I will be very happy to teach you my mother tongue through games and acting.
Your French teacher
Salut, I'm Ann-Sophie
I’m originally from Paris but I’ve also lived in Nice, the French countryside, the US, UK and Ireland, leading me to a degree in Comparative Literature + Teaching French a Second Language and later an Associate Degree in Acting.
I’ve been a Londoner for 8 years now, where I’ve been teaching French as a second language for students of all levels and all ages (ie 8 to 70 so far).
As I’m also an actress, writer, dramaturg, voiceover artist and translator, I’m very excited to combining language learning and theatre again (also known in certain circles as combining efficiency with tons of fun)
