Private French Teacher

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for so many years on an everyday, educational, and professional basis. I have official native-level proficiency. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). Culture is also a big part of learning a language, and I am well versed in French literature, pop culture, idioms, and more.
Recently, one of my first TakeLessons students passed her B2 exam, which allows her to apply to French universities. It's not an easy exam, the culmination of several years of classes and several months of test-prepping.
I edited a 240-page scholarly book in French, "De La Case A La Villa" (published 2014), and have spoken on French-language television and at professional conferences.
I give both private and group lessons.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! Yay! We can start in-person lessons again, as long as basic distancing is kept. I have been vaccinated and I would prefer my students to be vaccinated, too, but it's not a deal breaker. I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speaker

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

About Loren

I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning

I have really enjoyed my lessons. Jean Luc is a kind and patient teacher. He answers all my questions and is very responsive. I am very busy so I need an instructor who is non judgmental and let's me work at my own pace. The style may not be for everyone but this is what I needed.
Susan H.
Jean-Luc is an excellent teacher as he tailors the lesson to the student's needs. During my lessons, I have greatly improved in speaking, reading and writing. There are many fun activities and just having a conversation with Jean-Luc is fun. He is a native-born French speaker, which I think makes a big difference. I wish I could give Jean-Luc more than 5 stars! He's the best!

"Philippe has all the hallmarks of a great instructor- patient, engaging. He was great at sharing resources of different grammar sites, French podcasts, and news websites so that we could continue to develop our abilities outside of sessions.

There were plenty of times after working virtually all day, the last thing I wanted was to look at a screen, but our exercises were captivating. That speaks to his approach.
Also, he's judicious with his feedback which I appreciate.

Merci Philippe!"

"M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication."

French Grammar Rules: Reading Le Passé Simple

There is one French verb tense that you will likely only come across in literature, the passé simple. French tutor Carol Beth L. shows you how to recognize and understand this tense... The passé simple is a unique tense in the French language. Perhaps one or two centuries ago, it was commonly used like the simple past in English. For example: J'allai au magasin. I went to the store. Je couru deux kilometres. I ran two kilometers. The passé simple is similar to the simple …

How to Conjugate “Re” Verbs in French

Practicing verb conjugations is one of the most important parts of foreign language learning. After all, no sentence is really complete if you leave the action out of it.

French conjugation takes this principle to heart, and is peppered with both regular and irregular conjugations that require effort and practice to master. In this article, we will not touch on the irregulars, but we are go …
