Elodie Guillon, Owner & Instructor of French With Elodie
Bonjour and welcome to French With Elodie! As a native of Paris, and a lover of my beautiful language, I have developed a true passion for teaching. I have been helping business professionals and adults with French lessons in the DC area for the past 10+ years. In recent years, I have done extensive work with the US Justice Department and the US Department of Interior. With the latter, I have held French classes to help teams learn the language for their wildlife conservation work in Africa.
I can offer something for everyone. Beginners will learn to carry on basic conversations right from the get go, and advanced students will quickly master the language with meaningful discussions. Book club and movie workshops deepen the knowledge of the language and the culture through fun group discussions. My goal is to help all students master the French language and culture like a true native. Once a year, we travel to France for an immersion trip to give students the opportunity to put their efforts into "real" practice.
In my spare time, I chair the Alexandria French conversation group that includes over 900 members and meets twice a month in Old Town Alexandria. The group has become a true social and fun experience for Francophiles in DC. If you wish to become a member, sign up here.
With over 20 years of experience in multi cultural environments combined with 10+ years of experience teaching this beautiful language, I am confident that I can help you or your organization achieve your goals. I teach French language classes in Arlington VA, Alexandria VA, and Washington DC. Please check out my client testimonials and let's chat!
