People ❤️ Ilini

"Thanks to Ilini I have made really fast progress in French. I had always wanted to watch French news or music clips, but there was no easy way to pause, look up words or take notes. Ilini does this and even much more. It's a game changer."
Jonathan Ho
Australian expat, Paris
"I recommend Ilini as a brilliant way to bring authentic up-to-date cultural material into the classroom. Ilini can genuinely broaden students’ horizons and increase motivation, while saving preparation time for the teacher."
Danièle Bourdais
Author, BBC Talking the Talk French, Cambridge French Coursebook, ...
Consultant/Tutor, French Matters
"This resource is SO rich! This is the resource of my dreams. I have always had to type up the scripts of videos myself, or had news reports but no video. This is the best of both worlds. Add in the translation and exercises, and it is the resource I have always dreamed of."
Leigh Thomas
French Teacher
BASIS Tucson North, Arizona, US
"I have found Ilini an excellent resource to enhance the teaching of the new A Level specification. The content is always recent and engaging and the videos an excellent way to practise the audio summary."
Isabelle Jones
Head of Modern Languages
Alderley Edge School for Girls, England
