About us

Pam Bourgeois, the founder of Kolibri Languages, has long been associated with creative and effective language learning methods. Her techniques are based on years of experience running language schools for an international clientele and creating language-study materials in Europe and Africa. She has worked as a consultant in business French for the BBC and co-authored Objectifs: Assignments in Practical Language Skills (Cambridge University Press).


Pam has lived and worked for over 25 years in France where she established language schools, created and was editor-in-chief of several language magazines and developed a series of over 30 audio learning guides in three languages.


Her expertise in language acquisition and passion for cultural understanding inspired her to create Kolibri Languages and publish a series of practical guides to lifestyle, manners and language.
