French in Tucson

If you’re interested in learning French, then listening to others speak the language can be an inspiring experience. Of course, you can watch movies to hear these conversations, but it isn’t the same as actually being involved in a French conversation. Lucky for you, if you’re looking to take French lessons in Tucson, you have a lot of options to stay inspired and find opportunities to speak the language with other French language enthusiasts in the city. Read on for some tips on local things to do and see while taking French lessons in Tucson.

French Cuisine

Sometimes, all you need to feel inspired is simply to be in the right environment! France is famous for its delicious food, from breads and pastries to fine dining, so be sure to supplement your French lessons in Tucson by going out to eat in a French bistro and ordering your meal in French. Here are some local spots to check out: - Ghini’s French Cafe was started by a woman who was born in France, immigrated to the U.S., and then returned to France to learn how to cook authentic French cuisine. The food and atmosphere give you as close to a French experience as you can get in Tucson. - Cafe Francais Tucson Patisserie has more than just pastries. Whether you want a romantic meal or a relaxing Sunday brunch, this is a great place to practice your French. - Le Rendez-vous is another Tucson restaurant that gives you a real taste of France. In fact, it is probably one of the most affordable and authentic French restaurants in town.

Finding Other French Speakers

If you’re looking to practice French outside your French lessons in Tucson, you have many opportunities to meet and speak with other French speakers in the area. - L’Alliance Française is an organization that was started in Paris back in 1883. They have chapters all over the world, including one in Tucson, where you can refresh your French or practice your new skills among others. - The Tucson Language Exchange is a great way to get a one-on-one approach to conversing in French. The program helps to pair up native speakers of different languages who want to learn each other's respective language. The service offers conversations over email, text, and meetups, so you can work on your language in a manner that focuses on areas in the language that you need to improve.

 

Learning French can be a lot of fun, but you need to do more than just attend French lessons in Tucson and work on your homework. The best way to learn any language is through practice with others. For those of you who feel shy or uncomfortable at your current level of French, keep in mind that the best way to learn is to learn by doing.
