“learning a second language was something I have never endeavored before”
“When I met her, learning a second language was something I have never endeavored before, and I thought that it is not my strength compared to my abilities in mathematics, engineering, athletics, etc.
I only wish that I would have found her sooner!”
~ Troy Teague, CTO and Board Director, at Cavaloz Energy
“after five weeks… I took myself by surprise speaking French”
“After five weeks of taking Llyane’s Intensive Course I took myself by surprise speaking French, automatically and without thinking!
I am amazed that after five weeks I had an unplanned, spontaneous conversation with a stranger, in French!”
~ Catherine Parker, Designer
“my French skills have dramatically improved”
“By working on a one on one basis with Llyane, she has been able to point out misconceptions about pronunciation and grammar that I have had since beginning to learn the language.
Having a flexible schedule and the convenience of online classes. I can still get a weekly class in regardless of where I am.
If you consider learning french with Llyane and are hesitant, I’d say to you: Do it! Llyane is an excellent coach, and having an online course can fit into your schedule!”
~ Aaron Conran – Software Architect
“I realized how much my comprehension of French has improved”
“I took French for a year but still struggled to understand or string together complete sentences. I was frustrated that nothing I learned really stuck and didn’t find my classes very motivating.
Llyane puts a lot of emphasis on pronunciation, and I realize now how much it matters! It means the difference between past and present, singular and plural.
During a recent trip to Paris, I was able to say some things in French without getting puzzled looks from the Parisians.”
~ Joni Savage, Software Architect
“Llyane has a way of unlocking one’s potential”
“I’m well on my way to becoming fluent in French but, in addition, I’ve learned not to underestimate myself.
Llyane has a way of unlocking one’s potential that transcends simply learning another language .
I would advise anyone to take advantage of what this lovely lady has to teach. I haven’t regretted taking the plunge for a second, and I’m fully confident that anyone else who invests in themselves in this way will agree. Llyane has my 100% endorsement. Elle est un entraîneur incroyable…”
~ Will Scott – Public speaker
“I knew almost no French when I began with her – I am now moving to France”
“I knew almost no French when I began with her nearly 6 months ago. I am now moving to France in one week, and although I am not yet completely fluent, I am confident in my abilities to communicate effectively.
Llyane paid very close attention to my specific needs and gradually geared her style of teaching towards them, becoming a perfect match for me!
I am sure she can do the same for you! Thanks Llyane!”
~ Laura Licata – Self employed
“I am a lot more confident – all thanks to you”
“I thank you for all the good you have done me. It may not seem like it but I am a lot more confident than I was 3 months ago. All thanks to you.”
~ Josh Schaffer, pilot
“an efficient way of learning in my own time”
“I was finding the slow progress of previous large group lessons frustrating, and kept “hitting a wall” with my grammar. This set-up is exactly what I had been looking for, but couldn’t find! An efficient way of learning in my own time, but also incorporating intensive one-to-one sessions with Llyane — fantastic!
~ Sioned Owens, Ski trainer
“her programs are first class”
“I have been taking weekly Skype lessons with Llyane for almost 2 months now, and it’s been great!
I find her teaching style to be very, very good and extremely helpful. The way she teaches is what makes learning French for me, enjoyable and fun!
I would highly recommend her to anyone! Her programs are first class, and Llyane knows what she is doing. If you are thinking of signing up with her, do it! You will NOT regret it!”
~ Mike Southwood – National Account Manager at Quinco and Co. Inc.
“she’s the best and I am so glad I made the decision to sign up”
“The Intensif class allowed me to learn at my own pace, building on each module, rather than an online interactive course that decides the pace for me based on assumptions and timing. It is full of resources, videos and audio tools that focus on reading, phrase construction, grammar, and ear gymnastics.
It is a very flexible program in terms of your schedule.
I highly recommend this course to whomever is interested in learning French, no matter what your level, because Llyane coaches you from your starting point. She’s the best and I am so glad I made the decision to sign up for her programs!”
~ Kathy – Board of Directors
“she’s a master in her field”
“She is a master in her field. If you are looking for a great coach you have just found her. Believe me there is no better instructor to learn the French language.”
~ Alexander Aton – Self employed
“she has helped me gain confidence in speaking French properly”
“I have always wanted to learn French as a second language. And with Llyane’s help I have made a huge improvement. Llyane has a wonderful way of explaining the French language.
She has helped me gain confidence in speaking French properly. Llyane has a wonderful way of coaching her students.
I was impressed with the lessons and will recommend her to anyone who is motivated to learn and speak French!”
~ Vanora Reghelini, nurse
“we now conduct the lessons in French, something I would not have believed three months ago”
“I find the lessons fun, friendly and stress free, but most of all very informative. My French has improved so much so, that we now conduct the lessons in French, something I would not have believed three months ago. Llyane is flexible with the times of the lessons and organizes them to suit my needs.
I find Llyane highly engaging and a great teacher.”
~ Ian Mccaffrey – Owner at Crosby Plasterers
“she remoulds herself to fit each of her students in order to become an individualized rock of support”
“In short, the J’Ouellette system is much more than an online class. It is an experience that changes your perspective on life, inspires you to reach new goals and potentials, and allows you to relieve yourself of the rigid walls of traditional learning.
As for Llyane herself, in her you gain a friend and confidante who can simultaneously coax and demand from you only your absolute best. She encourages mistakes, embraces personal quirks, and remoulds herself to fit each of her students in order to become an individualized rock of support.
She dares you to dream, challenges you to push past any misconceptions you may have about yourself, and, when all is said and done, leaves you feeling a little wiser and a little more French.”
~ Leah Downey, student
“she does not compromise her product which is your success”
“Llyane is an effective teacher if you want to learn to speak, think, and write French. She has an excellent correcting ear and reinforces you positively. Her accelerated program is very effective. The program builds comprehension and confidence.
Llyane is extremely flexible with your schedule if you are a professional with other time obligations. At the same time she does not compromise her product which is YOUR SUCCESS.
The program is a fine value for what you get.”
~ Michael Craig – Business owner
“I’m super-impressed with the attention to detail”
“After Llyane’s course I can hear the difference it has made in my pronunciation! Better still, I have become more aware of my pronunciation errors as I hear myself speak and can self-correct. The pronunciation class filled in the missing pieces for me. For the first time, I now see and hear the patterns, organization and structure behind the pronunciation of French words.
I’m super-impressed with the attention to detail.”
~ Debbie Cochener – Owner at France Travel Info
“working with Llyane is life changing”
“One of my biggest fears of learning another language was having to speak it to others.
Llyane came highly recommended from a friend and still she surpassed what I imagined.
She never let me sit in “I am overwhelmed”, “I want to give up”, or the fluster of “I don’t know”. There is just no room for that when working with her.
Working with Llyane is life changing.”
