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.

Regardless of whether I am teaching language, civilization, or literature, my main goal is to help keep my students engaged, interested, and challenged in learning. In teaching the French language I focus on developing strong conversational skills, as well as writing and reading. To supplement the class session, I use online resources, authentic documents, and regular assessment of oral and listening language skills.

I've been teaching French for six years and my students have gone on to improve their grade substantially. Within the first few lessons, you'll get a better understanding of the material learned in class or if you are a new beginner, you will be able to read and speak basic French. I use different grammar and reading books depending on your level and make you practice with speaking and written exercises to vary the learning process. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I would be thrilled to meet 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 a Masters in French Language Education from the Sorbonne University in Paris and a Masters in Library Information Science from San Jose State University. During the traditional school year, I work in an elementary school

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!

"Tania has been working with me on my level. I have learned a lot and she has also refreshed my memory of what I had learned a few years back. Her classes are very practical. There is tons of conversation and grammar. I am able to apply what I learn right away. My comprehension has improved a lot as well. One of my favorite things is that she is a native speaker so I learn a more practical French with common day-to-day expressions, with many things I won't get from book. Very recommended!"

"I’ve had seven or eight formal French instructors at various points in my life, and I have to say Philippe was by far the best. I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."

"I enjoy our lessons. For me, having a native French speaker is very important. It allows me to hear the language how it is “naturally” spoken. This helps when you visit a Francophone country or come across a native when it comes to listening & comprehension. It allows you to better understand the language when spoken. Also, it helps you to learn the proper pronunciation, how different conversations flow and so much more. I definitely appreciate Jean-Luc! He is very patient and understanding. If I am curious about anything in regards to our lessons or the French culture he is more than willing to stop and explain."

Why Boston is a Great Place en Français

By Ian Lewis P. - Cambridge French Teacher

Hi, my name is Ian, and I love teaching French lessons in Boston. Boston and Cambridge are special, because they offer some of the best opportunities to learn and use your French language skills in the United States.

Boston is the cultural heart of New England, and as such, we are home to a myriad of Francophone cultures and communities. Learning French will be your key to unlock these gems. We are also home to some of the best universities in the world, such as Harvard and MIT, which often host events about French culture, history, and language. There is always something going on. Be sure to get the most out of your French lessons in Boston by visiting these events and attractions!

If you are interested in French music, ac

...

tivities for the public abound with French music concerts by the many great musical organizations in town, like the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Lyric Opera, and the countless other musical groups and local musicians.

If you love literature, Boston is also lucky to be home to the French Cultural Center. Their library contains the second largest private collection of French literature, film, and digital material available in the US, and is the first in the country to have launched a French e-library. Check out their website here: http://www.frenchculturalcenter.org/.

And, personally, my favorite place to pass a rainy afternoon in Harvard Square is Schoenhof's Foreign Books, in which you can spend hours perusing modern and classical French literature. (http://www.schoenhofs.com/)

Then, of course, there is Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge and Boston, one of the great food gems of the North East, and a great place to use your culinary French. They offer delicious and affordable classes on French wine and French cheese. You will definitely have a heads up with your French know-how and you’re sure to have a wonderful meal, too. (http://www.formaggiokitchen.com/boston/)

French-language cinema finds its home in Boston. The Museum of Fine Arts hosts the annual Boston French Film Festival in the summer. Kendall Square Cinema, a neat movie theater tucked in Kendall Square, and the Brattle Theater, a cool independent, old-style theater in Harvard Square, regularly screen French-language movies from around the world.

Finally, no conversation about French in Boston would be complete without mentioning our close proximity with Québec. We are only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the centers of Francophone culture in North America. Québec City and Montréal offer an easy and accessible weekend getaway where you will be completely immersed in French language. Traveling to these cities make great short trips for many of us Bostonians.

As you’re studying French, remember to practice speaking, writing, or listening to French as much as you can every day. Your French lessons in Boston will progress faster and more easily if you take advantage of the great Francophone resources available to you. You won’t learn to speak French overnight, but you will have a wonderful time learning, exploring Boston, and making new friends. Keep studying, and bonne chance!
