Isabelle owes her vision of language teaching, to a large extent, to her seven years of experience working abroad, first as a language student and then as a French teacher. She understands all the difficulties of learning a language and, importantly, the challenges of teaching languages to people living in a foreign environment.
Isabelle has a degree in linguistics, a masters degree in translation earned in Germany and a Diploma of Advanced Specialized Studies (DESS) in Business Management, all valuable qualifications in her role as manager of Formation Langues, the language school she founded in 1990 in Orléans. Despite her workload, as a passionate teacher she still allows herself the pleasure of teaching lessons herself.
With diplomas in business and marketing studies, Christophe joined the team as an intern in 1994.
Today, as Customer Relations Manager, he will work out the best price for your chosen training. He keeps in regular contact with trainees to confirm that they are still satisfied with their Formation Langues course.

Formation Langues‘ key asset is of course its dynamic team of experienced professional teachers, with diverse backgrounds and authentic accents. They are all university graduates with solid experience in teaching their own language.
Our core team of teachers are English, French, Spanish and German, but many others are available for other languages.
Teachers at Formation Langues have to prove that they have:
- A perfect command of their language: mainly native speakers or having lived many years abroad, they all have degrees in languages
- Excellent teaching skills: speaking a language fluently is not enough; our teachers must have substantial teaching experience
- Empathy and ability with any audience: children, teenagers, adults, professionals or private individuals
- Adaptability to people’s professional and personal interests in order to put them in the right frame of mind
At Formation Langues, we share three core values with our teachers and instructors:
We listen to your needs: our solutions are scalable and customized.
Our good-humored lessons are conducted in a climate of trust.
We process customer requests quickly to avoid unnecessary delays.
Listening, Conviviality, Reactivity
Because all learners are different, so are our solutions! We make it a point of honor to pay the same attention to all our students, regardless of their profile, function or professional sector. We work hard to make our language center pleasant and accessible for everyone!
Our solutions are scalable and customized. Our entire team is attentive to specific needs to ensure that training time is used most effectively. We can be contacted at any time – before, during and after the training – to advise or guide you to alternative solutions.
All our teachers are passionate about languages and the social interchange that language makes possible. Teaching is our vocation. Our teaching approach helps build a climate of trust conducive to effective transmission of ideas. Learning requires an excellent student-teacher relationship, which is easier to build in our relaxed, friendly, human-sized training center.
We know it’s not always easy to fit training into a busy schedule. This is why we adapt to your availability by offering extended opening times and alternative methods such as remote learning and lunchtime sessions. Our flexibility underpins our personalized solutions adapted to people’s needs, progress, imperatives and availability.
