About Us

KAFE English is run by Richard Thom and James Christie, both native English teachers based in Réunion, in France.

Richard and James met in 2012 in Réunion, France, and started working together as freelance English teachers. In 2014 they founded the educational website www.anglais.re, and started giving online lessons too.

KAFE English started life as kafe.anglais.re, an E-learning platform funded by the Plan Anglais through European funding. The project was geared towards providing the people of Réunion Island with free English lessons and quizzes. A total of 1800 users were registered with kafe.anglais.re.

When funding ended in December 2017, Richard and James started looking for a way for their E-learning platform to continue without becoming a paid service, and they’re still looking!
