I had my first lesson with Marjan yesterday and it was wonderful! She balanced getting through the material well without overwhelming me while balancing being personable as well. She also had prepared written materials that she emailed which was very helpful to study. Looking forward to more lessons!

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

Anna was a great teacher. She has always perfectly adapted to my needs and level, finding the appropriate ways to coach me. I have made considerable progress with her and would strongly recommend her sensitive and rigorous teaching.

Among many skills, she herself has an extraordinary voice and vocal technique which will make you even more willing to develop your vocal skills.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

1- Are you interested in teaching total beginners?

=> Of course! Actually, a lot of my students are beginners. It's fantastic to follow their progress and it's interesting to adapt the class a bit differently for each of them according to their preferences and abilities.

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> Beginner: 45 min lessons (conversation is still minimal, the lessons will be mostly based on exercices).

=> Intermediate: 45 min or 60 min lessons (about 50% conversation, 50% exercices)

=> Advanced: 30 or 45 min (100% conversation).

=> Kids: 30 or 45 min, depending how young and how are their ...

About Meriem
I'm a native French speaker, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic).

I moved from France to the USA in 2011 and my main job is being a costume designer specialized in opera. Through my work, I occasionally translate documents or help opera singers with their pronunciation & understanding of French lyrics.
I've also been teaching French privately and I would like to share my love for this language and culture with more students. Takelessons has been an amazing tool for this so far!

I'm looking forward to meeting you online or in my neighborhood (Andersonville in Chicago).

Merci et à bientôt!

Meriem is wonderful! Her lessons are well planned, her explanations are very helpful, and she does a great job creating a positive, encouraging environment to learn. To me, French feels very intimidating, so I truly appreciate the work she does to help me build my skill level and confidence.
