Bulle de Français

Self-paced monthly program for self-discovery and well-being through French

j

Journaling

Develop your voice in French through thought-provoking journaling prompts

Inspiring Input

Grow your awareness of the language through exclusive texts about mindfulness, self-development, well-being, and listen to the accompanying recordings.

Joy of learning

Connect with the joy of learning through fun and inspiring activities

A gift to yourself

A moment to yourself, to self-care, relax, and learn French at the same time. 

Fed up with uninspiring textbooks, grammar drills and traditional classrooms? Feeling disconnected from the language and from yourself? Stressed out by the never-ending to-do lists? Dreaming of confidence and proficiency in French while also enjoying yourself?

I’ve got you

I’ve been there too many times.

What if I told you there’s another way? That learning French can be a pleasure. A moment to take care of yourself. That you can both learn a language and bring more compassion, patience, and self-awareness into your language practice and into your life? 

A safe space

Bulle de Français is a safe space for French learners like you who need a monthly dose of inspiration to work on their language through activities they love. 

It’s a place to discover more about the plurality of who you are in the different languages you speak.

A space to find and express your unique authentic voice.

To explore your creativity and your sense of self, one journaling prompt, one meditation, one artistic activity at a time. 

 

Chaque mois, je reçois un thème inattendu qui provoque une discussion interne. Grâce à ça, je peux approcher les obstacles de ma vie avec un meilleur sens de calme.

Bien sûr, j’apprends beaucoup de nouveaux mots quand je lis chaque numéro de Bulle de Français.

Mais en plus, quand je considère chaque thème, je suis forcé d’utiliser les mots que je connais quand j’ai une conversation interne, quand j’écris, et quand j’ai une conversation avec Jessica.

Bulle de Français est une bonne façon pour améliorer votre français et en même temps découvrir des choses quant à vous-même, dans le but d’un meilleur mode de vie”

I’ve been really happy with the content and feel you’re being very generous with it— there’s lots of good stuff to really dive into. And it’s a good balance of writing, meditation, and having fun/a chance to play

Maggie, California

The amount of content has been fantastic. It’s enough that I feel like I have a full month’s worth of activities, but not too much that it feels overwhelming. I’m also finding that the experience of working with the same theme all throughout the month creates a kind of continuity and sense of increasing depth/mastery throughout the month.

Your coach & teacher

Bonjour! I’m Jessica Tefenkgi Ruelle, the founder of French Sunny Side. I’m a language lover, teacher and mindfulness & life coach.

 I believe in the power of languages to connect people within themselves and with the world.

I also believe that language learning doesn’t have to be a race or a marathon. It can be a pleasurable, sustainable and mindful practice. 

I design learning experiences for French learners to explore themselves through the lens of French, so that they find their voice and express it with confidence and authenticity.

I subscribed to Bulle de Français because I wanted to have self-paced material in mindfulness.

I absolutely love the format! The readings and audios are great even if I realize that I struggle to make time for it.

The content helps me reflect and helps me learn French terms that are relevant to me.

If you’re looking for self-guided French resources that are professional and beautifully designed, then Jessica’s Bulle de Français is what you need!
