Online French experience to give you fluff free guidance and put you back on your French journey the real way, the fun way.

The Private Tutes

Because sometimes you need to be serious and really study.

Yes we have to do some work especially high school students.

I offer private tutoring to VCE and IB students as well as tailored classes for adults.


The Fun Hacks

The memberships


Now because it's not all about grammar and tenses, I am adding a huge amount of fun extra tips and how to's, little and big hacks, ready made sentences to inspire you, lists of great films to watch, productivity tips and plenty more extra goodies.

From just $49/month, members also have direct access to:


+ Monthly Zoom catch up or activity, a Zoom Class or demo, or a French Movie followed by a discussion, maybe a French yoga class or a simple Aperitif...the programme will be sent you at the end of the previous month so you can save all the dates. 

+ Access to the 30 Day of French Challenge in our private Facebook Group. The theme changes every month.

+ "Unlocked", a weekly lesson + homework sent directly to your inbox on Sunday. 

+ Access to the members only Facebook Group,The French Clique, to ask and discuss anything and everything with me or other members. From a grammar frustration to 'where can we find the best croissant in town'.

+ Free Masterclasses held monthly in my Zoom Room to go into details about something specific.

+ Random acts of kindness.  

+NEW: La Pause Dej' if you purchase " French Hack with the Lot". I open my Zoom room for all members to talk and spend some French time together every week day over lunch time!

( during VIC school term)

Let's be social

Through the French Hack Facebook and Insta pages, we can talk, share wins or thoughts, ask questions, catch up virtually. You will truly feel part of the French Hack community. 

I also very often go on Insta live stories to present free masterclasses and answer questions you might have.

You know, you don't have to be a member to benefit and participate or if you aren't sure this is for you, you can simply purchase your spot in the 30 Days French Challenge, or just a cooking's all up to you but there is definitely something for everyone! 

 Join in, I'd love to welcome you ! 

Just for High School Students

The French Hack On Tap membership 

Just like the Pause Dej' but for high school students who want to push themselves in French.

I open my Zoom Room every day, Monday-Friday at 6pm for 1h.

This is a safe place where students get to talk French, ask questions, listen to Masterclasses and learn cultural aspects as well as academic tips.

The number of students will be limited to 10 at any given time so I can guarantee a personal experience.   

Hack on Tap will be running during VIC school term but students can of course contact me directly if they have any questions.

I'm Alexandra Ganipeau

I was born and bred in Bordeaux, France but have been calling Melbourne home for over 20 years, where I have been tutoring students privately as well as within many schools since my arrival.

I am definitely a grammar nerd but I understand that there is plenty of room for fun and hacks on the language learning journey. You can be certain that there isn't one question I haven't been asked.

What's in it for members?

Because whether you have decided to take French all the way or get back into it, you might as well enjoy the journey. Yes, there are some tricky bits but there are ways to make it all a bit easier. My goal is to make you work smarter not harder to painlessly acquire all you need to confidently and consciously become a better student, develop good habits,

The bite size lessons are easy and uber manageable so you can, and should, go back to them anytime you need a refresh.

The Fun Hacks section is an endless source of info, tips and hacks you will love as well as regular blog posts. 

Being a member of The French Hack is just like having a French tutor and mentor on call.

You will be sent the Monthly timetable as well as an invitation to various events and outings, the Ciné Club, the 30 Day Challenge and so much more!


So, if you are ready to unlock your French, sign up now !!

""I loved the French Hack 30 Day Challenge so much I've recommended it to several others. It's a relaxed, fun and hard-or-easy-as-you-like way to get your français on! Alex balances just the right mix of encouragement and challenges to suit francophones of any level" "

Narelle G

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Alex during my final years of high school. She helped me to expand my vocabulary, improve my conversational fluency and pronunciation and overall become much more confident in French. Alex made learning French very enjoyable and exciting. She taught me things about French culture I otherwise wouldn’t have learnt, which gave me an academic advantage and made the experience of learning French far more rewarding. "

Sophia V
IB student, Melbourne

"I had a great experience with Alex as my tutor, she was incredibly supportive and helpful and we not only developed a great relationship as peer and mentor for French, but she supported me for all the aspects of the year 12, knowing when to push me in my studies but also making sure I stayed healthy both mentally and physically and always went above and beyond for me. I would highly recommend Alex as a tutor, she helped me improve my French beyond what I thought possible and I ended up achieving a score I was incredibly happy with! "
