Welcome to Chez Lieve, the website for French Classes in Roncesvalles Village in west end Toronto. 

Lieve  teaches French conversation classes to adults from her home during the day. The group classes are taught at 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 Winter term has now ended. A sortie is planned on March 14. 2024.
The dates for the Spring session are now posted. Registrations for the Spring session are open. There will be 7 classes and a sortie TBA. The cost is $245 for the Spring session. Please register before March 15th so I can finalise the groups.

Lieve is a long time resident of the Roncesvalles area and a former French instructor at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. 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.”
