Salut, je m'appelle Hugo et je suis le créateur d'innerFrench.

After graduating from a Parisian business school and working for a big advertising agency on the Champs-Elysées, I realized that this was not my path.

Like most of the best things that happen in life, it was by chance that I started working at the French Institute in Warsaw, Poland. But it didn’t take me long to understand that I had found my dream job.

I realized how fulfilling it is to help someone learn something new. When my first student, who started learning French from scratch with me, made his first grammatically correct sentence all by himself, I almost cried! 

However soon enough, I got tired of using the classic « textbook » method so I decided to adopt a different approach based on Steven Krashen’s famous Theory of Second Language Acquisition.

This led me to create the innerFrench podcast and the Build a Strong Core program.

Today I feel very lucky to have such an inspiring community of French learners around me and to be able to help them in their journey.

If you have any questions, let’s get in touch!
