Who Are We?

Updated in Jan 8, 2019

Ilini is a French company founded by Benjamin Rey in June 2017, after launching a first prototype of the website in February of the same year. Initially based Toulouse (la ville rose), we moved to Lyon (la capitale des Gaules) in the summer of 2018.

Our website was officially launched at the London Language Show on 13-15 October 2017, where we introduced Ilini, spoke with hundreds of French teachers and learners in the UK and had a lot of fun giving a talk on “From Macron to pop music: 50 shades of French”. We were proud to win a prize at the prestigious Tech for Teachers Awards in January 2018 and we keep receiving fantastic testimonials ever since!
