A variety of influences led Benoit Bolduc to create and develop Ciné-Langue. After a decade as a musician-composer-performer, he undertook studies in translation, communications and public relations and worked as a freelance journalist and translator for 15 years.
It was the creation of Ciné-Langue that truly mobilized all his creativity. In the beginning, Ciné-Langue was born from the bonds of friendship. In order to help a friend improve his English, Benoit showed him humanist films that the two friends would then discuss together in detail, often scene by scene. Based on this original experiment, Benoit quickly saw the potential of film as a second-language learning tool and began to develop the Ciné-Langue method, before going on to create the school of the same name.
