Coucou! I am Lily, your teacher and co-founder of the school! I live in Paris, where I studied sociolinguistics and philosophy. I then worked for seven years as a french teacher with several schools. After encountering many frustrations at how language schools work and teach, I decided to co-found my own language school. I am also an author (le FLE côté Pro"- a manual on business french) and DELF/DALF certified examiner. I can't wait to meet you and make you fall in love with my culture and language!
Salut et bienvenue! I am the coordinator in charge of your subscription, class schedule and all follow-up questions! After 10 years in educational management, I am here to make your learning experience as smooth as possible! Bon apprentissage!

I have been working with Lily for almost 1 year now and have significantly improved my French skills. She has helped me to feel more confident in my French speaking and writing skills, and has always been available for help. I moved to Paris from the United States and have taken several language courses, but Lily's are the most relevant and effective! Highly recommend her services!Caroline Utt: 🇺🇸
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study with Lily and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their French language skills. She is an exceptional teacher and a wonderful person.Svetlana Geshtovt: 🇷🇺
I have been lucky enough to learn French with Lily for nine months now. I tried a lot of languages schools before and I can say that Lily is the most amazing teacher I ever had. Learning French was never easy for me, but her teaching style is exceptional, and she has a remarkable ability to make the lessons both fun and informative. Because we talk French that much during a lesson, I can put in use what I learned and it gives me a lot of routine.Jana Salten: 🇩🇪
Lily embarks her students and takes them a step further in every lesson. Her range of learning methods is vast, the topics current, and her joy for language infectious.Dr. Carole Ackermann: 🇨🇭
I had the pleasure of being under Lily's instruction for a period of time in 2022 and I had the most amazing experience. Not only did she make the classroom a safe, judgment free space, she integrated French culture and gastronomy into the curriculum. She is funny, kind, and goes above and beyond every day without fail.Natalie-Lorraine Berson: 🇺🇸
When I started studying French I didn't understand anything, it was hard and kind of boring. But when I got to Lily's class everything changed. She's sweet, patient, attentive and explains really carefully. She litteraly was the first person to make me like French so I'm truly grateful with her.Juan José Diaz Ortega: 🇨🇴
Lily is a wonderful teacher, always good methodical and pedagogical prepared. I was teaching for 20 years and I can recognize and appreciate her linguistic and communicative competence. Her teaching strategies are very good and very effective. She also has great presentation skills and ability to motivate learners for learning.Dr. Aleksandra Cykman: 🇵🇱
Setting up in France and having a french boyfriend made mandatory for me to learn French ;-) After multiple and not convincing experiences with different teachers in individual and group lessons, I have finally/luckily found the right teacher with Lily. Lily is a very structured teacher building the basics in a very effective being the grammar and the vocabulary. She is therefore securing quick progress while ensuring that the fundamentals are solid. Bottom line, my french boy friend will become soon "mon mari" which proves that I learnt quite good French with Lily :-)Carmen Gaus: 🇩🇪
I began French lessons with Lily a year ago and I owe all the progress I've made in learning the language, especially in speaking it, to her excellent teaching skills. She is structured in her teaching approach, yet she tailors her lessons to each student's current level and ability to pick up the language. She ensures that you learn the more theoretical parts of French such as conjugation of verbs while focusing on the more practical learning like talking about your weekend plans, ordering at a restaurant or asking for directions, using interactive videos and fun exercises. I have definitely enjoyed learning French from Lily and always looked forward to our weekly Zoom class. Lily, tu es une professeure extraordinaire. J'ai de la chance de t'avoir comme professeur!Saloni Almeida: 🇮🇳
Lily is a wonderful teacher. She is passionate, patient and has a feeling for a persons language level. She challenges you just enough and brings new thematic vocabulary and exercises to every lesson. Whether you want to learn more about a specific topic in life, such as travel, work or family, or whether you want to improve your listening, reading or writing skills, she will be ready to help you!Nadja Spaar: 🇨🇭
I have thoroughly enjoyed my French lessons with Lily. Lily is engaged, patient and also knows how to get the most out of our classes. Her practical way of teaching leaves you feeling confident that you are grasping the basics of this complex language before progressing. Living in Paris herself, Lily incorporates the use of current words to help her students to sound more authentic in our speech. I really enjoy my classes with Lily and I have no doubt you will too!Candice Vigaro: 🇿🇦
I needed to learn French quickly when I got a spontaneous job offer in Brussels. Paying bills, going to city hall, and settling in all meant that I needed to quickly acquire a basic understanding of French. Fluent Academy has helped me tremendously in achieving and exceeding that goal. The course itself is well structured and completely online. This has made it easy for me to learn French anywhere and anytime. After 4 lessons that included a well calibrated mix of grammar and free speaking, I was already able to hold a basic conversation in French. I particularly enjoy that every lesson is centered around a new topic that gives many impulses to engage in interesting discussions even at a more basic level of French. Another thing that I really enjoy is that the teachers are very positive and motivating. I never felt judged for making mistakes and the friendly atmosphere motivated me to speak a lot and progress quickly. I can only recommend to take a course at Fluent academy!Sebastian Gerber: 🇩🇪
Starting my french classes changed my arrival in France and it was critical for my integration, both personal and professional. The classes are enjoyable, challenging and adapted to my level and needs, it makes learning a new language an experience and not a struggle. I could not image I would be able to write a review in French as well. J'ai commencé mes cours de français pour préparer mon départ pour la France. Avant, je n'ai pas utilisé la langue française pendant plus de 20 ans. Non seulement pour le quotidien et l'intégration, mais surtout pour l'environnement professionnel. Grâce au soutien de Lily, j'ai pu participer, je veux dire participer activement à des réunions après quelques mois. Sans cela, il n'aurait pas été possible de travailler efficacement. Je vous recommande de prendre des cours individuels, car cela permet une approche très personnalisée de vos besoins, qu'il s'agisse de conversation, d'écriture ou de préparation de présentations ou de discussions... cela vous facilitera grandement la vie.Joao Costa: 🇵🇹
