I’ve been taking French lessons with Stéphane Raynaud de Fitte for about four years and I have completely enjoyed this experience., Stéphane is a very intelligent person who can discuss any subject and also explain the etymology of any word. English shares many words with French but their meanings are not always similar.
Stéphane’s explanations and his native speaker pronunciation have helped me to much better understand and speak this beautiful language. I would not hesitate to recommend Stéphane to anyone who wants to learn or improve their French language skills.

Stephane has been teaching my daughter, who is now 6, French over the past 4 years. He is wonderful with her, and finds innovative ways to engage her interest even when she is tired or otherwise not so inclined to participate in a lesson. I could not recommend Stephane more highly!

A truly stimulating experience! For three years, I took individual lessons with Stéphane and it was very good. I really loved that! I was looking forward to this moment every week! I also joined his class in small group as well as the advanced conversation group he created, it was a very complementary experience.
Stéphane is very interesting, funny and enthusiastic. He is especially incredibly patient! I was always happy before the class when it was over, with the feeling of having accomplished something and having learned. I have now gone abroad to work for several months but I hope he will have the time to continue the lessons with me when I come back!

His sparkling personality and his career in many fields make Stephane a very interesting teacher! I love talking with him about the pitfalls of the French language, and he helps me to know better the culture, the arts and the art de vivre of the French people. We also talk a lot about history and politics.
I strongly recommend taking classes with Stephane, because beyond the language, our topics of conversation are exciting!

For the 6 months that my partner and I are learning with him, we observed in the small group that we joined that he likes to teach us. We really like our lessons. Stephane is very attentive and attentive to the needs of everyone in the group, even when we came once with our puppy!
His enthusiasm and humor make the experience very exciting in an excellent atmosphere. And it offers very good rates.
We highly recommend Stéphane to everyone! On a 5-stars rate, we would give it 6!
Join us at the group!
