I've been teaching french for about 6 years now and got experience teaching different level and ages. I studied different languages myself, I understand the obstacles that come with taking on a new language. Since I am a native french speaker I can help with grammar, vocabulary and especially pronunciation.

I can speak four languages, so I understand what it is like to learn a new language which is what makes me an excellent French tutor and teacher. Being born and raised in Belgium it was not optional in my Flemish or English-speaking schools to not learn French from 5-10th grade. French was the most difficult for me to learn how to write but I am grateful for the French tutor I had growing up. Therefore, I want to do the same for others. I truly believe in the power of believing in others because eventually, they could excel in a subject they never thought they could which has a big impact on one's self-esteem and opportunities. It would be my honor to help you grow and learn French!

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

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 always try to help students feel comfortable so that they can talk because talking is the basis of an enjoyable lesson. From there we discover new vocabulary, analyze grammatical structures, practice fluidness, pronunciation, and intonation. I enjoy exploring current and past events by using newspaper articles, extracts from books, videos, and songs. I also encourage you to submit any document you would like to study if you feel that it could be useful. By providing the documents in advance I can prepare an interesting lesson for you. À bientôt !

I been teaching English and French for 10 years now. I began learning in high school so I understand the challenges English speakers and others face learning the language. I studied English and French at Vanderbilt University in the USA. I have lived and worked in France for a total of 2.5 years. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I have been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I still speak French on a daily basis. I have also visited other French speaking countries and can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.

I've been teaching French for 14 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture, study abroad in French speaking countries, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I typically use the living language books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: recording equipment, worksheets, textbooks, and more. I love working with students of all experience levels and can't wait to meet you!

What is the fastest way to learn French?


One of the fastest ways to master French is to study one-on-one with a private tutor. During your French lessons, your tutor will provide you with the resources you need to become fluent in this language.

Your teacher will instruct you based on your preferred learning style, go at a comfortable pace that suits you, answer all your questions, and offer you constructive feedback so that you can achieve all your language goals. As long as you listen to your tutor’s instructions and dedicate time and effort to practicing and studying, you’ll find yourself on the fastest track toward fluency.

Is it easy to learn French?


It depends. Some students say that this language is relatively easy to learn if you already know English, but it does have some challenging pronunciations that can be difficult to master. That said, when you take private lessons, your tutor will help you understand even the most challenging aspects of this language so that you can more easily become fluent. During your private sessions, your tutor will give you the tools you need to read, write, and speak this beautiful language with ease.

Can I learn French for free?


You might find some free French resources, but here at TakeLessons, we strive to make learning French affordable for all our students.

Our French teachers have hourly rates that start at $15, so you’re sure to find a tutor that aligns with your budget. While you do have to pay for our lessons, you will get value from working one-on-one with a private French teacher. Unlike many free options, you’ll get paired up with a certified teacher who will help you every step of the way, guiding you toward fluency.
