French Lessons in Orlando

French is a beautiful language. From the way it is structured to the lilting sounds that make up each word, there is a lot you have to learn when you start your French lessons in Orlando. However, it is going to take more than just time with your teacher or homework to become fluent. You need to go out and get some real experience with the language - through writing, listening, and speaking. Fortunately, Orlando has a number of options to help you develop your language skills!

1) Enjoy French Cuisine and Conversation There are several great restaurants where you can really test out what you have learned in your French lessons in Orlando. These restaurants offer real French cuisine, and you can tell because their owners speak French! Don’t let feeling self-conscious keep you from attempting a conversation. Most people appreciate hearing their native tongue, even if it is only the basics.

Le Café De Paris is one of the highest-rated cafés in town. The excellent food and service extends beyond the unbelievably delicious quiches and croissants. For under $10, you can get an authentic French meal and the chance to practice speaking with people who are fluent in the language.

Le Gourmet Break is another highly-praised restaurant that offers traditional French cuisine. Sit down and order some savory crepes and a traditional French breakfast. The place does some really quick business, but if you can catch the restaurant in one of its calmer periods, you can have a discussion with the owners in French.

Benjamin French Bakery & Café makes some of France’s most famous foods – pastries and breads. Of course, you can get a full meal, as well. If you’re feeling up to it, you can even place your order in French!

2) French Language Club of Central Florida The French Language Club of Central Florida is a private meetup group that gets together once a week with the expressed objective of giving all members a chance to practice Level One French. Because this means participants are still in the early phases of learning the language, the founder does switch between French and English to ensure everyone understands the discussion. It costs $7.50 to join, and the group meets up in different cafés and restaurants around central Florida. You will need to plan accordingly. http://www.meetup.com/frenchorlando/

3) Orlando Pen Pals If you aren’t comfortable meeting up with a group, you can get your own pen pal and start working on your language without the pressure of speaking. This is a great way to start practicing the structure and difficult spelling you learn in your French lessons in Orlando. When you are first getting started, you may find you are too self-conscious to open your mouth in front of strangers. A pen pal takes out the complications of sounds and forming the words and lets you focus on getting the basics down first. http://www.mylanguageexchange.com/Pen-pals/city/Orlando__United_States.asp

There are a lot of ways to supplement your French lessons in Orlando, especially for beginners. By spending time outside of your lessons developing your skills, you will progress much more quickly. Whether you want to focus on the structure of French sentences or dive right into conversation, you can take the approach with which you are most comfortable.

I've been teaching French since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday situations and as time goes on you'll be able to watch films and listen to and understand music in this language. I specialize in French literature. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! J’adore ça, quoi?!

About Aliaksandra
Hi, there! My name is Aliaksandra and I can't wait to meet you!

I went to Minsk State Linguistic University (Republic of Belarus) and earned a Master degree in Philological Sciences in 2003. I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Aliaksandra. She put me at my ease while challenging me. The one on one is exactly what I need to improve my ability to use the language. While I have been studying on my own for quite awhile, there is no substitute for having to actually use the language. On top of all of this, Aliaksandra is personable and fun.

"Bonjour" and "Bievenue" to French tutoring! As an international singer, I can teach you the ins and outs of French so that you sound like a local, and can keep up in class or when you study abroad. We'll work on grammar, making up your own sentences, practicing conversations, and improving your pronunciation so you sound like a true francophone.

About Nicole
Nicole is available to teach lessons for students of all levels. Beginning her singing career when she was 7, she most recently sang at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, was a winner of the international CS Competition in musical theatre, and is a Chicago F.A.M.E. finalist for Jazz and popular music. Combined with her training and professional experience, Nicole teaches singers to switch gracefully between multiple styles. She practices what she preaches: one night she might be singing Beyoncé, and the next morning she might be singing Handel's Messiah!

Nicole has been a young artist for Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Metropolitan International Music Festival, and for Tiroler Opern Programm, under international instructors, including Elizabeth Bachman (from the Metropolitan Opera), Kim Josephson (Metropolitan Opera), Sharon Cheng (Caramoor),
Michael Fennely (Carnegie Hall), Wei-En Hsu (Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra), and Candace Evans (Santa Fe Opera). Nicole earned her Associates in Theatre from Brigham Young University ('12) and went on to acquire her BM in Vocal Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University ('14). Nicole obtained additional training from Boston University, Elon University, and the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Dr Hester is Very very welcoming. My son loves The way she teaches him. Dr Hester makes him feel very comfortable in asking questions. He has started liking the subject and gained a lot of confidence since he started going to her. She is also very accommodating with time and week of the day. She is very very prompt at answering emails. I would give her a 5 star.

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

About Jaleh
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. Therefore, I grew up appreciating together this new world with that of Persian tradition. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years. For nearly twenty years, I have taught French at various language institutions as well as to private students. I can help you with anything relating to the French language.

About Alex
Hi! I'm Alex
I am a student and former football player at The University of Alabama. I have been playing banjo for 5 years now and love sharing my experience with those who are less experienced. My favorite part of teaching is allowing the student to be creative and not just sticking to a book like some more traditional teachers.

I love making language acquisition relaxed, fun and easy and will tailor how I teach you, to how YOU want to learn! I love the French language, culture, people and country so much that I want to spread the joie de vivre and and pleasure of learning to communicate in this beautiful language. I have a BA in French as well as K-12 Teaching Certification. As English is my first language, and I am fluent in French, I understand what it is to learn as an english speaker and can assist from that perspective. I've taught in the French National Educational School system abroad, led bicycle and wine tours all over France, taught K-12 French in American Public Schools, taught immersion programs in the US, and had my own private French teaching program called L'APRES-MIDI FRANCAIS where we learned through play, conversation, or formal lessons ... a la carte. Come learn to speak French - you'll love the language and the process too!

About Elisabeth
Salut!
I would love to have the opportunity to improve your French language skills, whether for your next trip, to help your children get more out of their French class, or as a challenge / brain gym.
I have a degree in French as well as teaching. But more importantly, I have lived in France and worked with French colleagues over a 30 year period and many varied applications. I've also worked with students, teaching French, from 3 to 73 years old in loads of learning settings and preferred learning styles. Please feel free to all or text with any questions or to talk about a personalized program.
Abientot, Elisabeth

I have self studied in French to a high level and know it very well from a technical level. I wish to master my French because I will be going to Switzerland to study abroad. It is a very beautiful language and I enjoy teaching it to those who want to learn.

About Edward
I'm going to be a 3rd year student at Pepperdine University pursuing an Engineering degree. I'm a huge language learner, being able to converse in about 8 languages but I only wish to teach 3 of them for now. As someone who prefers self studying to learning from classrooms, I've perfected the method for students to improve drastically from their previous lesson by self preparing. I prefer to teach online especially for further students but those that are close I wouldn't mind commuting. My hours are pretty flexible during the weekdays.
