Cours en ligne gratuits!


The Ottawa Public Library is proud to announce access to the French-language database Toutapprendre. The resource offers a wealth of free and unlimited online courses.

Take advantage of the rich offering of videos such as 30 hours of yoga, coding for kids, how to use Office 365, language learning (English, Chinese, Arabic, Spanish...), 20 hours of preparation for the IELTS exam, singing lessons, over 200 hours of French grammar and vocabulary, and much, much more!

Please note that your progress is not recorded, so if you have started a video and want to continue it later, we recommend that you make a note of your spot so that you can resume later. It also works best in Google Chrome. Some videos, such as the section Langues, are only compatible with Windows. You can check the compatibility in the course summary.

We hope you enjoy this new resource!
