Learning French in Denver: Your Guide to Culture and Inspiration

By Andrew W. - Denver French Teacher

Interested in taking French lessons in Denver? Denver has a long history of ethnic and language diversity. Denver has been home to immigrants from Latin America, East Asia, Africa and European countries, like France. Many of the immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean are French speaking, although their dialects may be slightly different from the French that is spoken in France.

When you’re taking French lessons in Denver, there are lots of great resources to aid you in your studies. Here are a few of the places you should explore while you’re taking French lessons in Denver.

The Alliance Française de Denver

The Alliance Francaise de Denver was founded in 1883 to promote French culture and language in non-French speaking countries. It is the oldest nonprofit organization in Denver, and the only French language, culture, and resource center in Colorado.

The Alliance offers social and cultural events for the community including lectures, art exhibits, film screenings, wine tastings, and cooking classes. They also have an incredible library of books, films, and music.

International School of Denver

Another option for young students or adults is the International School of Denver. There is a French Ministry of National Education accreditation for their program, and all French instruction is delivered by native French speakers.

From kindergarten through eighth grade, students with a French emphasis undergo instruction in both English and French. The school also offers summer camps in many different subjects including French and Le Chef.

Restaurants, Cafes, and Bakeries

Denver is home to many amazing places to eat, drink, and be social. They also have quite a few that places that serve French food, pastries, and delicacies.

Le Central is one of the best French restaurants in Denver and an affordable option for French cuisine. Although the price point is lower than most French restaurants, the food is delicious and the restaurant serves authentic French cuisine.

Chris S.

Aurora, CO

About Chris

A short history of my experience with music and education:

The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001.

I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005.

I began teaching private music lessons in 2003.

I played bass guitar in a Christian rock band called of Anastasis from 2003 to 2005.

I played acoustic, electric, and bass guitar on the worship team at Family Worship Center in Lakeland, FL from 2006 to 2012.

I worked as a freelance audio engineer with my in-home recording studio throughout college (and now I just d
o it for fun).

I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009.

I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from 2009-2010.

I began performing independently from 2009 to present.

I played guitar and sang lead vocals in a Christian Rock Band called A Story Familiar from 2010 to 2012.

From 2010 to 2012, I taught in the Polk County public school system of Florida from 2010 to 2012, where I also worked heavily with students with special needs.

In July of 2012 I moved to Aurora, CO as a volunteer musician to help plant Livingstone Church.

In January of 2013 I married my beautiful wife.

Upon arriving home from our honeymoon, I was hired as Worship Director for church, and I have worked there since. Some of my responsibilities include developing weekly music set lists, creating charts and sheet music for new songs, and training the worship team in new music.

As for me personally, I love Jesus, my wife, and music.  As I'm sure you can tell by my brief history, I do a lot of church service and ministry, if for this for any reason makes you wary, let me assure you: I play a lot more than just church music.  As a lover of music, there is not much that I don't enjoy in the world of music, and I've taught most of it.  I've taught the young and the not-so-young, and whether you're just beginning to read music, or you're just eager to learn your favorite song, I work closely with you to ensure you achieve the results you desire!

*** Lesson Details ***
Four things I focus on:
1. Creating individualized lesson plans
2. Learning new techniques and polishing old ones
3. Building confidence
4. Having a fun, rockin' time!

When taking lessons from me, students can expect an environment that is a balance between being strict and laid back.Music is something that must be learned, and as such, it must also be practiced week-to-week in between lessons.  I consider myself strict because I'll hold you accountable to doing your best to learn the best. Despite holding you accountable, I think the overall mood of the learning environment is laid back; we'll have a lot of fun learning music.  I make sure that we'll be learning at your pace, but keep in mind, this doesn't mean I won't push you to be your best! My teaching experience has taught me one thing: everyone is different. That being the case, I create lesson plans that are unique to you.  Where you will be in a month, six months, a year, largely depends on your commitment to learn, but I'll promise you this:  all of my efforts will be utilized to maximize your potentiality.

*** Attendance Policy ***
I am very flexible with attendance, but I do require a one hour notice that you will not be at the lesson. If a one hour notice is not given, the lesson will be marked as "missed" resulting in payment from your TakeLessons account for the missed lesson.

If you are simply running late, please be sure to let me know-I try to be as flexible as possible, but if the student is over 15 minutes late, I typically mark this lesson as "missed" as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide the following equipment for in-studio lessons:
Guitar amplifier
Bass amplifier
Drum Set
Recording equipment
Music stand
Seating area for parents/guardians to sit/listen in on the lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide the following when traveling for in-home lessons: iPad
For in-home lessons, I expect students to have whatever equipment is necessary for learning their instrument of interest (This typically includes at least the student's instrument and a music stand, but may also include a metronome, tuner, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Praise/Worship, Indie

We've only had 2 lessons so far and he is great! He is encouraging, polite, flexible, kind and takes the extra time if needed. He definitely knows how to teach and knows the natural developmental progression to build the foundation for a beginner and explains what the next goals she'll be working towards. He even learned a Justin Bieber song just to make my kid happy. Lol!

Chris was way more patient than I was with my son. Even when Daniel got distracted Chris just re-engaged him and kept plugging away. I also like his method of explaining the notes and their differences. He brought down to a level Daniel could immediately grasp.

Amie B.

Aurora, CO

About Amie

Hello, my name is Amie. I have degrees in Spanish and in International Studies from the University of Wyoming. I have lived and traveled in various countries in Latin America including Mexico, Costa Rica, and Brazil. I studied for a year at La Universidad de las Américas: Puebla where I took coursework related to Mexican history, economics, and politics in Spanish. I taught elementary and intermediate Spanish for two years at the University of New Mexico while I completed my coursework for a master's degree in Latin American Studies. I have a student-centered approach and have many resources t
o help you with your language acquisition goals. I have also worked as a translator and an interpreter in addition to my work conducted in academia. Most recently, I have worked as an immigration paralegal and, as a result, I am able to tutor on legal Spanish terminology.

Great tutor. Very knowledgeable and very personable.
Natela October 12, 2016
Spanish · In studio
I am proud to say that I am very familiar with Amie's proficiency in Spanish in dual capacities. One as a former co-worker where she served as a bilingual interpreter and translator working with Hispanic immigrants and second, on an instructor level. Amie's ability to interpret complex legal documents at work was consistently met with praise and admiration by her clients and superiors.
I also had the pleasure of doing a beginner-intermediate class with Amie in a private setting with another student. I am in my early 30's and have been taking Spanish classes since 7th grade through college, however, being that I am a non-native speaker, I have not had anyone to practice with for years. Taking classes with Amie proved to be an excellent way to brush up on my intermediate knowledge of the romance language with an instructor who is fluent, patient, and kind. My Spanish comprehension is better than my ability to speak it as I am normally too shy to engage in conversation with others, but Amie provided such a comfortable and welcoming environment that I was able to converse with her openly for hours. Amie's knowledge and fluency in the language was very evident throughout our lesson. I left feeling more confident and equipped in my ability to speak Spanish. I would highly recommend Amie as a tutor or instructor and am positive that she will leave you wanting more.

Stacey R.

Denver, CO

About Stacey

I am a lifelong student of many subjects. My approach to teaching is one of patience and enthusiasm. I do my best to understand the student's learning style and teach accordingly.
I have been a professional actor, model, and singer for 10 years. I specialize in on-camera acting for TV commercials, industrial video, and host. Most of the modeling I've done is commercial print and live promotional modeling. I've taught acting to kids ages 6-17 for the past year, including on-camera auditioning, stage directions, script analysis, and business skills (headshot/resume, finding an agent, industry
terms, etc.).
My singing experience includes pop, musical theatre, and jazz. I've coached students who believed they were hopeless, and they were pleased to discover their gifts and see growth!
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and have taught for 3 years, both group classes and privately.
I minored in French in college and tutored beginning French.
My motto: Never stop learning!

Stacey from the very beginning was bright eyed, attentive, present and matched my enthusiasm exactly. I had a wonderful first lesson and cannot wait for next week!

Stacey is incredible! I have been in love with the arts ever since I was little but was always too shy to put myself out there and study music and theater. Stacey really helped me reach out of my comfort zone and pushed me to become the best actress I can be. I felt very comfortable in all of our lessons and she is one of the only people in my life who encourages me to pursue my dreams. Every hour we spent together I learned more about the world of acting and how to audition for roles and find an agent. I highly recommend her!

She's amazing! I feel she truly cares about my voice and wants to help my journey as a singer and performer. She explains things so well, it makes singing and music in general easier to understand from a technical perspective. She's also auch a kind person, easy to connect with, so I feel very comfortable singing in front of her! I HIGHLY recommend Stacy!
