French Lessons in Atlanta, GA

By Natalie T. - Atlanta French Teacher

Are you interested in French lessons in Atlanta? Atlanta is a thriving, multicultural metropolis with plenty of opportunities to learn almost any modern language! From classes to events to organizations, there are several community resources to help you learn French for the first time, improve your skills, or simply practice on a conversational level.

  1. The Alliance Française d'Atlanta

The Alliance Française is an international organization, dedicated to promoting and preserving the French language and culture. The United States is fortunate to have an Alliance Française in almost every major city. The organization is membership-based, but membership is optional and affordable. For example, members are currently able to participate in “Heure Heureuse,” a conversational group for all French levels held every third Friday of the month. The organization is also child-friendly, hosting engaging programs involving activities such as games and cooking lessons. The Alliance Française will help you complete a placement test to help determine your language level and there are periodically volunteer or internship positions available so that you can further get involved and practice French! (http://afatl.com/)

  1. The Atlanta French Language Meetup Group

Founded in 2003, this is a conversational group that meets every third Monday of the month to practice French in an informal setting. All language levels are welcome and entry is just $1.00 per meeting. The group is comprised of 50% native French speakers and 50% non-native French speakers, with approximately 50-60 people attending at a time. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to meet French speakers and/or practice their French in a friendly environment. RSVP at: http://www.meetup.com/Atlanta-French-Language-Meetup/. There are also two other groups in Roswell and North Fulton.

  1. Emory University - Continuing Education Courses

If you’re looking to practice the language outside your private French lessons in Atlanta, check out Emory University’s Continuing Education courses. Like most college language courses, these classes offer a well-rounded curriculum of study to include pronunciation, spelling, grammar, conversational skills, and cultural learning. Emory has an impressive, longstanding reputation within the world of academia and continuing education courses for personal enrichment are no exception. A list of French courses can found at the following link: http://ece.emory.edu/catalogDetail.php?CatalogID=53.

Atlanta provides many options for those seeking to learn French for the first time, or to train their current French skills. There is an option for every budget or schedule. Outside of the classroom or conversational group, volunteer work is always an option and much appreciated by all of the above organizations. Volunteer work will also provide language immersion and useful skills at the same time. Simply decide which option is best for you, and amusez-vous bien!

Jonathan has a demonstrable amount of knowledge about the violin including different playing styles, music theory, and its practical application. His approach is incremental and measured that adapts to my specific strengths and weaknesses intermixed with an appropriate amount of patience. He is also very personable. I always look forward to our lessons together.

I have an immersion style method with very little English spoken during the lesson.
I assign challenging but not overwhelming homework after every lesson, and provide periodic assessments and progress reports.

About Yann
Bonjour!

My love of teaching comes from my love of learning.

As a graduate from La Sorbonne University, I know that hard work and dedication can pay-off.

As a private tutor for the past 5 years, I've had the pleasure of helping dozens of students realize their own potential and see their grades and scores improve.

I specialize in teaching French for success in School as well as study abroad.

Whether we are working on High School French exam or are going to France for business, my goal is to keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed.

I assign challenging homework after every lesson, and provide periodic assessments and progress reports.

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I meet at the students home,a library or my own home where I teach private lessons
.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I also offer a free 30-minute consultation to discuss the student's goals and put together a plan to help the student achieve them.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

Wow, where to begin? I am a person that lives in a place where there is not a sufficient amount of French language teachers (for reasonable prices). Also, I have a very busy schedule and am not able to spend the time commuting to meet up with a tutor as often as I'd like to learn (2-3 three day(s) a week with Yann IS possible).

When I first discovered Yann on takelessons.com, I noticed that he had no reviews. However, I really liked what I read of his profile's pedagogical method. I took a gamble and purchased (20) two-hour sessions. Today, I just finished my 12th lesson with Yann. I can say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. In the past, I have taken French beginner lessons, have purchased language software such as 'Fluenz', et cetera. Working with Yann has been the best way for me to learn. The pace of learning is perfect.

Why is Yann such an effective teacher? Despite having a low rate, Yann obviously has a tremendous amount of effective/passionate teaching experience. When you take a lesson with Yann, you will discover this on day one. Additionally, he is super patient with me and does an excellent job at describing French grammar. Yann has very high expectations and pushes me to succeed in acquiring the necessary knowledge in order to progress and make sense of the necessary knowledge in relationship to the next lessons. Without question, I would recommend Yann to anyone wanting to seriously learn the language. My intuition tells me that he would be a fantastic teacher for all ages and language levels of the French language. Merci Yann! Vous êtes un exemple fantastique.

Superb teacher. The lessons are fun, interesting, and immensely productive. Each session is packed with conversation practice, notes and guidance on grammar and vocabulary, and explanations for idiomatic phrases, cultural practices, and nuances of the language. The entire lesson is documented in writing for easy reference and review. David is a gifted and energetic instructor.

I was born in Paris' suburbs. French is my mother's tongue but it is not enough to be a good teacher. I got a degree in French literature in 2002. I am a patient teacher for all levels, and all ages. Feel welcome to ask for help either for personal or business purposes. Le français est une langue qui a beaucoup de charme, le secret est juste de pratiquer ! C'est facile ! Commençons avec les basiques, puis étape par étape nous progresserons ensemble !

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello students, parents, and co-creators. The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 14 and 12 (10th, and 7th grade).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the ma
in NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Life is the biggest exam off all. Every day we are being tested. With our family, friends, work, travels, everywhere we go and whatever we do. Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

In middle school, I began taking French instead of Spanish because I wanted to be different. By the time I reached college, I knew I wanted to be proficient in at least one foreign language - so I ended up majoring in it, and spending two years in Paris during graduate school. Languages are fun, and I hope to help my students discover this, too! Look out also for my blog articles in French on the TakeLessons blog.

About Beth
I earned my BA in French with a minor in math from Pomona College, followed by my Masters in French Language Education from the Sorbonne University in Paris. I have six years of experience teaching English and English as a foreign language to middle and high school students.

I have taught private violin and viola lessons since the beginning of 2012. As a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have completed their violin pedagogy courses for Suzuki books one through four. I have played in various local orchestras since high school, including the San Diego Youth Symphony, the Pomona College Orchestra, the San Francisco Civic Symphony, San Francisco Civic Strings, the West Sacramento Community Orchestra, and the Rancho Cordova Civic Light Orchestra. I also play handbells, and currently play with RiverBells Sacramento.

Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

I have vast experience in teaching French as a second language. I taught it for many years in my home country, Portugal, to middle and high schoolers and am currently tutoring the language. I love the sound of the French language and the way it can convey different emotions. French is the language of love, art and literature. Let me help you develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. We will make a great journey together.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

About Jean
Hello!

I'm a university student who is currently studying music performance. I am interested in taking on a few students this summer. My specialty is brass performance (tuba, euphonium, trombone, etc), however, I can also teach basic music concepts such as reading music, and basic piano skills. Whether it is learning to actually perform and play on an instrument, or whether it is simply being able to audiate and then tap out a tune on a piano, I can teach these skills! I am very passionate about bringing basic musicianship to all kinds of people; all people should be able to recognize (or reproduce) the skills it takes to do any type of music. My teaching philosophy is very largely about music appreciation and music application. One will learn to appreciate old types of music and new types of music (like pop), and one will learn to app
ly their skills to the type of music that best interests them!

I also teach Spanish and French in addition; I have 3 years of French experience and 6 years of French experience; I would love to take on some beginner students!

With regards to these lessons, prices are entirely negotiable. Simply send an email and we can discuss.
I am willing to travel!
