Meet Umut

Hi there,

Welcome to Tumu Learning! My name is Umut and I’m a French Teacher based in Toronto.

I understand that learning a new language can be a challenging and lengthy process, but I believe that it can also be enjoyable and manageable. With Tumu Learning, I aim to make this journey fun and easy for you by providing new and innovative ways to motivate yourself and improve your communication skills.

During my own French journey, I noticed that many language courses focus solely on grammar, neglecting the practical, real-life application of the language. I realized that there is a significant difference between textbook French and the French used in everyday life. I had to make extra efforts to learn conversational French and reach fluency.

That's why I founded Tumu Learning - to help people SPEAK French, without being bogged down by cumbersome grammar rules. My programs are designed to help individuals achieve their goals, whether they're learning French for professional or personal reasons, such as immigration or travel.

Let’s get started!
