My kids enjoyed the French class with Roselyne and they learn a lot in each class. She provides notes and assignments so my kids so they can review and practice after each class. Learning a new language is not easy, you need a good teach like Roselyne!

""Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher."

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, activities 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!
