Bonjour et Enchanté

My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me.

French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country.

I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker.

I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I ...

Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!
Jon
I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

I have been taught French by Fabrice for over a year. After trying several different ways and programs to learn French over the past 4 years, I now know how valuable a good teacher in a foreign language is. I chose Fabrice on purpose because he is French and has a French accent that is easy to understand. He is awesome! Fabrice is always meeting my need where it is with written, spoken, and visual aids along with tips and shortcuts where appropriate. He is very astute at assessing my weaknesses and building on my strengths and always patient. I am not only learning the language, I am learning the culture. Fabrice is highly recommended!

What makes French lesson unique is because it is a beautiful and complex language. Its pronunciation and sound are amazing. My students will learn the vocabulary, verbs, adjectif, adverb, and grammar combined together to help them understand and build their own French sentences with confidence. I learned French from High School for more than 12 years. I can speak it, read it and write it. I will teach with empathy meaning that I will use my strategies into my students shoes to help them understand and succeed.

Nassiba is a gifted teacher. I took her class after I met her as a neighbor, I’m very satisfied with her. As far as I know, she didn’t take any new student this year because of her new medical career, I’m not sure if the N.Zack’s review is accurate. I’m planning on visiting France whenever COVID gets under control, so I’m looking forward to retaking her class whenever she’s back on Takelessons. Highly recommend Nassiba.

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?!

I have taken French classes before, but Evelyne has an organized approach that makes it easier to remember the important but difficult details. Evelyne also has an understanding of cultural differences between the US, and different french speaking countries, which is great for anyone planning to move or travel.
