Meet your French Teacher

My name is Christine, I’m French and I’m your French teacher.
I live in Norway and I’m the founder of A Cup of French.

How did it all start?

I started giving French private lessons to Norwegians in 2008 and founded Franskforalle in 2013.

Franskforalle means “French for all” in Norwegian.

I really enjoy teaching my native language.

My goal is to teach French in a safe, fun and easy way, to any levels, ages or needs.

The most important thing to me is that my students have pleasure in learning French.

French is a difficult language, but there are ways to teach that makes French easier and more fun to learn.

There is no age limit to learn French. My students are between 5 and 80 years old.

I make tailor-made courses for each of them and I have good experience in teaching both teenagers and adults.

My blog and infographics

Lately, I’ve been developing infographics to help people to learn French grammar and vocabulary in a playful way.

This is a new side of my work that I really enjoy.

I decided to start a blog and I’ve grown interest on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Change of name

As a result of this, Franskforalle became A Cup of French in 2018, to get a more international name. 

I chose this name because I wanted to illustrate that you can learn French like having a cup of tea.

You can have a daily cup and you can have it anytime.

You can also enjoy it as a little break in your day.

My cup of tea” is an expression describing something you like, you are good at or you enjoy doing.

My goals and vision

The idea behind A Cup of French is to provide French learners with a cozy interface.

I want to give the possibility to learn French in a fun, but educational way.

When I started this project, I wanted to find a balance between academic websites courses and a more personal and friendly way of teaching French, without losing a rich and serious content.

I want to give the feeling that you are learning French over a cup of tea or coffee.

With A Cup of French you can learn French in an easy and enjoyable way, from a native speaker, at your own pace.

I now split my time between running my blog with all social medias and teaching Norwegians students in Oslo. 

I’m also working on a new project, making videos to explain the French grammar in a new way.

These short videos are going to be easy to understand, learn and memorize and fun to watch.

They will be followed by exercises in order to test what you just learnt.
