Welcome to Chez Lieve, the website for French Classes in Roncesvalles Village. Lieve teaches French conversation classes to adults from her home during the day. The group classes are taught at 3 different levels. Conversational skills are learned through discussion of current events, the arts, songs, hands on activities, along with grammar essentials and verbs taught in context.

The schedule for Fall 2019 is posted: classes start on September 24th, 2019. There are no classes over the Summer.

Lieve is a long time resident of the Roncesvalles area. She started teaching French locally for the French Immersion parents at Howard PS as a support for their children. She has many years of experience in that area and also reaches out to parents from other schools, interested learners, local residents, seniors etc...

Her lively and enjoyable classes have become well-known in the neighbourhood. In her classes, Lieve combines a climate of social gathering by sharing cultural and global news, and initiating discussions on art and current events and topics preoccupying the minds of Torontonians wanting to learn French. All homework is optional.


Coffee, tea and chocolates are served around the dining room table Chez Lieve.

“I've been attending Lieve's French classes for 10 years now. It's a great way to keep up my French. Lieve keeps us on our grammar toes, leads us in lively discussions about everything from the latest political uprisings to the whereabouts of the French president's wife, and feeds us lattes and Belgian chocolate. All this with a great bunch of people. I couldn't ask for more.”
