Hi, I'm Hélène!


 

I provide high quality, personalised language coaching and professional translation services.

Whether you’re looking to learn French, English or Spanish, or needing professional translations into French, you’ve come to the right place.

I have been a language coach and translator for more than 15 years based in Paris, Rome, Budapest, Brussels and now happily settled in Barcelona. Over the course of my career I have helped many people to unlock themselves and take the first step and to overcome potential blocks & embarrassment.

 


My students have enjoyed a 100% pass rate with complete satisfaction.


 

Cultures and customs have always held a deep fascination with me. I am particularly interested in languages ​​and improving communication.

Educated with a Masters in Foreign Languages specialising in Translation from La Sorbonne and a further Masters in European Studies, I am also certified as a French teacher for foreigners and certified life coach.

Along with teaching, my professional experiences have included working at the Berlitz language centre in Budapest and Brussels EU diplomatic missions including the Mission of Japan to the EU, which has given me invaluable insight into corporate and European practices.

It is my strong belief that in order to learn a language it is necessary to love it.

I go beyond teaching vocabulary and grammar. I infuse an enthusiasm in my students for not just the language but also the related arts, literature and philosophy.

It is rare to come across a more committed and professional teacher like Hélène! She expertly helped me through the entire preparation process for my international level language exam. She took me through a 6-month fast track exam prep that covered the areas of speaking, listening, writing and reading. I was particularly happy with her approach to teaching, adaptability to challenges, and commitment towards the ultimate goal. Oh, and she always made sure that our private lessons were never without energy snacks and coffee. Any organisation, or student, would be lucky to have Hélène as a teacher.
