NOT another English class.

Fixing Franglais is a unique series of corporate training workshops for French speakers who write and speak English in professional settings.

Finally, natural English for French speakers.

your natural English toolbox

Fixing Franglais uses an original four-step approach to self-guided correction in English.

Designed exclusively for adult French speakers, these trainings draw on psycholinguistic principles, and the resources and methods used by professional translators and language professors. 

Fixing Franglais won't teach you English. But it will give you a unique set of tools for identifying and eliminating Franglais, and finding the right words in natural English based on your specific context.

 

Because expressing yourself in a foreign language isn't just about knowing words!
