Lieve De Nil grew up in Belgium where she worked as a certified French teacher. For the last 28 years, she has been teaching French in Canada. After obtaining a Masters Degree in French Literature, she started teaching French conversation, French pronunciation and grammar at the University of Toronto, School of Continuing Studies in 1990, where she was honoured with an Excellence in Teaching award. She has specialized in teaching conversation classes to adults, starting her classes for parents of children in French Immersion. Lieve now reaches out to the very broad community of adult learners in Toronto’s West End and offers them a challenging and stimulating language learning environment.

“Thanks to Lieve's engaging and relevant classes, on a recent trip to France I was actually able to join a discussion on a national political crisis! Students enjoy the perfect blend of current events and art and culture through articles and videos, dictation and grammar, interesting conversation and a great cafĂ© au lait!”
