FLS textbook author (CLÉ International Publishing), expert educational advisor for language schools in Canada and France.

After many years of teaching and engineering FSL/FSO programs as well as training teachers (French Institute, japanese universities, language schools), his discovery of the theoretical principles of the NLA in 2008 and his meeting with the founders of the NLA in 2012 convinced Olivier Massé that there is a real pedagogical turning point in the way of teaching of this Canadian approach when it comes to optimizing our teaching strategies.
