French Lessons in Miami

In a city affectionately dubbed "Little Cuba", it's easy to assume that, outside English, Spanish is the only language you'll encounter. However, if you're taking French lessons in Miami, you also have plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the the language and traditions of France. You just have to know where to look!

Check out these local places and events if you want to enrich your vocabulary, practice your pronunciations, and enjoy cuisine as authentic as its European inspiration.

  1. Consulat général de France à Miami (Website in French: http://www.consulfrance-miami.org/) (Website in English: http://www.consulfrance-miami.org/spip.php?rubrique2) Florida's only French consulate is located right in the heart of Miami's financial district, in a sprawling suite of the Espirito Santo Plaza. If you want to meet French citizens, Americans who travel to France, or representatives of the French government, this is the best place in the state to do so. The consulate's chancellery issues visas to citizens of both countries, hosts attachés who are here on behalf of France, and advocates for French citizens who must navigate the American legal system.

If you want to attend specific events, the Consulat général de France has that covered, too. Its diplomats work directly with the embassy in Washington, D.C. to make sure the French culture is celebrated and represented accurately throughout the state. Because the Miami community has so many international influences, it's the perfect setting for most of the consulate's official French events. These include film festivals, award ceremonies, workshops, heritage days, and more.

  1. France Cinéma Floride (http://www.francecinemafloride.com/) Each fall, hundreds of South Florida Francophiles gather in Miami for the state's annual French film festival. You may already enjoy French films from the comfort of home, but this is your one and only chance to get the full cinematic experience and discover little-known films that are otherwise unavailable in the States.

Miami's picturesque Tower Theater hosts the event every October or November, and the three-day weekend includes up to a dozen new French releases. If you just started taking French lessons in Miami, don't worry about missing key moments. Every film is subtitled, and every poster and program is available in both languages, too. You'll even get the opportunity to interact with French filmmakers; at least one film is always followed by a question-and-answer session.

  1. Tigertail's Florida-France Festival (http://www.tigertail.org/events_flafra15.html) France isn't the only French influence in South Florida, and that's readily apparent at the annual Florida-France Festival (more commonly known as FLA-FRA). Thanks to Miami's close proximity to the Caribbean (and hundreds of local Louisiana transplants), this month-long cultural event is full of Creole and Cajun influences, too.

These languages originated as French dialects, but as they evolved, they integrated vocabulary and grammar from English, African, Spanish, and Native American languages. Now, these colonial French offshoots are rich with their own unique music, dance, and fashion traditions. FLA-FRA honors these traditions with performances by Cajun folk bands, Creole jazz musicians, and more.

Of course, the French consulate ensures that European French gets plenty of representation at FLA-FRA, too. Watch classic French films right on the beach, interact with Napoleon impersonators and accordion players, and enjoy audio-visual travelogues that showcase French landmarks and landscapes. You'll even get to participate in a French-themed treasure hunt (chasse au trésor), collecting clues and competing for the grand prize: a gourmet French meal.

Miami is alive with the languages and cultures of hundreds of different countries, but as you take French lessons in Miami, you may notice that France is one of its most dominant and surprising influences. Don't forget to keep an eye out for Miami's many French fusion restaurants and museum exhibits, too!

About Enrico C.

I have a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Literature issued by the University of Verona, Italy.

I have studied French for several years and I tutored it in the past. I will be very good to teach beginner to intermediate level.

About ENRICO
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

*** Lesson Details ***
Customized lessons to the students' needs and goals.

*** Specialties ***
- T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language

- Italian Native Speaker with a several year experience in teaching Italian

- M.A in Foreign Languages and Literature (English and French)

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

Natahlie was a great instructor I have taken classes before at Berlitz for work and had a much harder time getting started. Working with a instructor one on one made me feel more comfortable than a class room setting. In the past I have had instructors more concerned with covering material than making sure everyone is on the same page. Natahlie was very patient we me and made sure I understood the different nuances of the language before moving ahead with the lesson.

About Jacqueline
Hi, I'm Jacqueline and I specialize in French tutoring for students of all ages. I have taught over 120 French students at all levels including beginners, AP students, and adult learners. I work with each student to create a program tailored to their individual goals and needs. I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and overall fluency.

When it comes to learning French, I believe that speaking experience is just as important as learning grammar and vocabulary. I emphasize speaking skills and give students the opportunity to practice this throughout my lessons. For students who need help with grammar (one of the trickiest things to learn in French!), I use my experience both as a student and teacher to simplify difficult concepts.
