Do you want to know more about your tutors? Well, there is Marie, the founder of Latitude French, who after working in Auckland for 5 years is now based in Wellington. At Latitude French we want to keep small, friendly and deliver tailored French lessons to our students. :-)

Marie is a native French speaker, born and breed in the heart of Europe, in the very small country of Belgium, famous for its beer, great chocolates and waffles. I am from the west part of Belgium; the old town of Tournai, a stone’s throw from France and the main city of Lille. "
"Early 2010 I landed in New Zealand with my partner and many ideas for projects and proud to be resident of such a nice country. The seeds of Latitude French were quickly sowed, and here I am, happy to meet great kiwis and share our language and culture with our students in Auckland and Wellington"

Your French tutors in Wellington:


           Kia ora everyone! Bonjour tout le monde!
My name is Marie, I am passionate about architecture, art, outdoor activities and travelling. I really enjoy the French language and the very rich French literature. 
Following a 3 year degree in interior design and a 5 year masters in Architecture, I worked as an architect in Belgium and in France for a few years. Seven years ago, I migrated to New-Zealand with the idea of creating my own business, and getting                         to interact with the people. I have come to realise that I could combine both goals                         with my enthusiasm for the French language. 
                        I have a real passion for promoting the French language. Over the last 7 years , I                         have had the chance to teach French to people from various backgrounds and                         different needs. Students from all age and all levels (de “7 à 77 ans” as we say in                         French). I am based in Camborne-Plimmerton.
                        A très bientôt.
              "My name is Trang. I grew up in East of France and spent the last 20 years in Paris area. I was a social worker in France. I taught French in China and in a social-integration support association in France. I also had the opportunity to promote French culture through workshops of daily life. I love dancing, cooking and travelling."
                       Trang is based in Whitby, she started working with us in June 2017.
             "My name is Marion. I am 28 years old. I am an experienced french nurse. I have been living in New Zealand for two years. I love  working with children and share my passion for French language and culture."

                "My name is Laurence, I am from the Loire Valley (Tours). I was a young education councillor when I met this English assistant from Wellington. I took a year off from work the following year to go to NZ ... That was the beginning of my Pacific journey. I spent 6 years in NZ, falling in love with this beautiful country and a completely different society. Then I went to Tonga where I stayed for 2 years with my Tongan husband before being back in my previous job when I became a mother, in                       New Caledonia this time. After 13 years there raising our 2 kids we decided to move to                       NZ. I will be really happy to help you with your French at any level. A bientôt !"

                      Laurence started working with us in November 2017 (based in Beach Haven)
