“Making a positive educational experience a reality – and one that will last a lifetime!”
My French Club is the only language Club in Mississauga, ON dedicated to providing you with unique enrichment programs in French, in a cost effective manner. We are a team of passionate and enthusiastic Francophones and Francophiles who will amaze you by our positive attitude and great coaching skills that we bring forward to all our students.
Our variety of educational programs is offered to children, adults with no prior knowledge of French, and students enrolled in French Immersion or French as a Second Language (Core French). Our programs are very diverse and we try to cater to all needs.This is just the beginning; we hope to continuously improve our program offerings and expand to new locations!
Our aim is to empower families interested in complementing their children’s education by ensuring their active use of their French skills outside of the classroom. This positive learning environment makes for a total French experience that will only inspire students to continue their studies in French, while achieving academic success and boosting their self-confidence.
At My French Club’s Programs:
We speak in French 99% of the time.
We conduct a coaching session to give students the confidence needed to be great learners.
We use Multimedia (videos, music, PP, pictures) a powerful learning tool, to keep students engaged.
We make learning fun and appealing for our students so they love coming to THEIR French Club and want to pursue their French studies!
We limit the number of participants so we can give personal attention to our students. Quality comes only with a low mentor to student ratio. Yes, we make it personal!
We sponsor up to 2 children in every group program that we offer.
How a child does in school goes hand-in-hand with what he does outside of school. Extra-curricular programs greatly complement schools to increase academic outcomes, reinforce learning and promote confidence among all students involved. This is why the advantages of a program such as the French Immersion will only fully be realized when children are also exposed to French experiences outside of the classroom.
Furthermore, we recognize that even with the greatest of intentions to support their children and have them succeed in their French education, not knowing the language can make parents feel disconnected or helpless at times. This is why we created My French Club, a Club to help you with all your French needs!

Founder’s Story: Asma B.
Most people who know me will say that I am a social butterfly! I love helping people, sharing new ideas and resources.I also love new adventures and being independent.
I grew up in Paris, France and moved to Canada more than ten years ago. It was probably the best decision that I made. I just love it here. I love the atmosphere, the diversity, the chance that we are given to be whoever we want to be!
I am a mom of two wonderful kids and without them this Club would not have seen the light. It is thanks to them that I have become a teacher, and gathered so many resources around teaching French. They challenge me everyday to be a better person and for that I am grateful to them. Being a working mama, my life is a discipline in balance, but I am blessed by it and I just want to make the best of it every single day.
I also really love languages. I grew up with a multilingual family and a father who speaks 9 languages constantly hearing various dialects and dealing with various cultures. So learning languages is second nature in our house. We mainly learned languages by singing as my dad was always humming some melodies in the house…
Why did I decide to start My French Club?
I have been teaching French to children and students since 2001. Sometimes from my home, sometimes from community centers, sometimes on a one on one basis and sometimes as a group study. I am told that I am really good at what I do and I do enjoy it. I was trained as a Project Manager and worked for many years in that position, so I am good at speaking in public and being organized. I am ecstatic to be able to earn my living now in doing what I am passionate about: helping people with the skills that God gave me. I also help students learning a new language and believe in their full potential. I really want to provide for each one of them the best possible positive and encouraging learning environment, paired with an excellent level of French. So here we are today creating “beauty” everyday at My French Club!
The program provides an opportunity for children who would otherwise not be able to attend due to their families’ limited income, to be part of My French Club Programs. Getting extra academic help after school has been proven to greatly enhance a child’s self esteem, organisational and learning skills. Presently, we sponsor up one child in every group program that we offer. Funding comes partly through the family itself and partly through fees that other parents have paid for their own children. So when you register with us, you are actually giving back to your community.Children from low income families also deserve an opportunity to do better at school and thus feel better about learning.Please fill up the form if you want to apply for a subsidy.
