“I am proud to introduce you to the great Institut Francophonie team! A team that lives, breathes and dreams in French!" - Maude


Directrice / Référent handicap

"I hold a Master's in French as a Foreign Language (FLE). After 7 years of experience in teaching FLE abroad in England, Djibouti, Mozambique, it was in 2015 and with a lot of emotion that I took over Institut Francophonie following the retirement of Chantal DRALEZ, founder of the institute. An amazing adventure!"

What do I like most of all? Seeing our students progress over time and hearing them laugh in French!!!" 

Florence DRALEZ

 "With a Master's degree in Psychology, Florence has been applying her talent as a teacher at Institut Francophonie for 15 years now! What does she prefer? The success of her DELF / DALF students and teaching French to kids!
