THE FOUNDERS OF BLF

Let’s reinvent together a new way to learn French !

Bonjour la France – BLF  is born from the encounter of 2 university professors of French (FLE) who have the same observation: traveling does not have to be the summation of choosing between fun and cultivation, but it can be a combination of the two. Above all, it can be the chance to learn a language and to return home a changed person.
