French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have speaking it for so many years on an everyday and professional basis. My grammar is excellent, as I learned the rules in junior high school in the Paris suburbs (grammar is an important part of French schooling). I edited a 240-page scholarly book, De La Case A La Villa (published 2014), and I gave both private and group lessons.

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.

Finding a good French teacher is hard. I’ve had many over the years. Olivier is completely bilingual and brings a breadth of knowledge, patience, engagement, and personalization to his teaching that makes him, hands down, the best tutor I’ve ever had. Don’t be intimidated by his qualifications—he is extremely personable. If you take learning French seriously, you want Olivier.
Priscilla
Olivier has been tutoring me for the past year. He is always very clear in his explanations and very patient. Olivier is also knowledgeable about the French culture. I walk out of every lesson with more confidence about my French and the progress that I'm making. Definitely a 5-star tutor. I highly recommend Olivier as a French tutor.

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

Pascale était super! I had taken French for a year or two in high school, but nothing beyond that when I decided to pick it up again a few years later. Pascale comes prepared with slides and examples, as well as additional outside resources. She makes lessons fun and easy to understand and really prepares you for speaking. I would take lessons from her again in a heartbeat.

she really helps when you are learning the language and I highly recommend that you should have her as your french teacher.

"I take lessons with Mr. Philippe, and I am extremely impressed by his teaching method. I have previously taken French classes with different institutions and numerous instructors, and I evaluate Philippe as being one of the best if not the best instructor I have ever had. I base it on the way I am currently performing with all 3 skills (Speaking, Reading , and Writing). The best part is that I feel relaxed and confident in class. Philippe knows how to work with a student to get the best out of you, without affecting confidence. Tremendous skill. I highly recommend Philippe as an instructor for French."

From me (adult): I was relearning French to prepare for a vacation to Paris. Zach did a fantastic job of being flexible, challenging me, teaching us (ny daughter and me) key phrases that would be helpful ahead of our trip, etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to take lessons!"

French Verbs and Grammar: Le Passé Antérieur

How do you talk about the past of the past? French tutor Carol Beth L. shares this lesson on conjugating French verbs in le passé antérieur... If you've studied French verbs for long enough, you've probably studied the passé composé and the imparfait to discuss events that took place in the past. But what do you do when you want to discuss events that happened before other past events? Use the passé antérieur. In English, this tense corresponds pretty closely to the past p …
