  Elodie Ferry

    Director - Teacher

As a little girl, Elodie wanted to speak all the languages in the world. She chose English, which she graduated with a bachelor from Strasbourg University in 2010. After that, she moved to London where she was a French teaching assistant for two years while completing her Master of French as a Foreign Language.

She then moved to Luxembourg to become an independent teacher for all publics. She has an extensive knowledge of the latest teaching methods of French as a foreign language which makes her very professional.

In the meantime, she enjoys giving dynamic and creative courses to adults as well as to teenagers and children because she believes that learning a language and its culture should remain fun.

Through all these experiences, she developed a real know-how regarding teaching and a true sense of adaptation to all publics.

Passionate about travel, she fell in love with Ireland and its treasures, its culture, and the kindness of its people. When she had the opportunity to take over the French Institute, it was with no hesitation that she turned everything upside down to realise her dream to own her school in this beautiful city of Galway; in order to pass on her passion for French culture and language and to create a place of sharing and friendliness with her students.

 Jessy Ferry


Passionate about the English-speaking world, Jessy graduated with a BA in English languages, literature and civilizations at the University of Nancy in France in 2012.

After that, he had a career of police officer in the Gendarmerie Nationale for 10 years, a job that allowed him to travel across the country and meet a multitude of people from all cultures and backgrounds.

Through his experience, he acquired knowledge in human relations and team management, as well as in the administrative field.

A Premier League fan and lover of Irish culture, he is delighted to live in Galway to share French culture with fun and good mood.
