Bonjour! Learning French is easier than you think. We will use a wonderful course to guide our lessons together, designed to take you from zero knowledge of French to conversational fluency. I look forward to introducing you to French!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

I provide tailored individual classes based on each student's strengths and weaknesses. I like to combine written exercises and casual conversations in each lesson. If wanted, I would be happy to use more news-based material, books or songs.

I was nervous going into my first lesson, but Celine put me at ease right away. She promptly sent the lesson manual so I can begin the written exercises for next week's class. Can't wait! 😊

I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!). I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France! I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

About Nicola
I am bilingual in French and English. I received my bachelor's degree in French from Columbia University, where I graduated summa cum laude, and my master's degree from the Université Paris III Sorbonne-Nouvelle. Since graduation I have taught French (and arts classes/workshops in French) at various bilingual schools and organizations around New York City and Boston. I also work as a professional translator between French and English, and a filmmaker specializing in bilingual media.

I love teaching students of all levels, whether at my home in Brooklyn, a nearby café or a location of your choice. À très bientôt j'espère!

Experience first. I am a French native with native fluency in English. I have taught hundreds of hours, and I have helped many people reach their language goals. Effectiveness and enjoyment are my two favorite keywords. Since I am very good at learning languages as well as teaching them (I can communicate decently in 8) I am a great ally and mentor for anyone learning a new language. I know many techniques, tools and approaches that really speed up the process. I am also extremely flexible in my approach. Your specific learning style determines how we work together. Meeting many new people and establishing a relationship of trust and mutual appreciation with them. I also love to see people shine and reach their goals. It is always satisfying to show someone how to learn efficiently and enjoyably.

About Jean-Paul
I am a skilled professional language teacher. I teach French, Spanish, English, Italian, Mandarin and Hindi. (all levels). I am a native French speaker but I also have native fluency in English (I have lived in the U.S. since I was a teenager).

Teaching and languages have defined my life. I seek to make learning FUN as well as effective. If you need straight "bring up your grade" "pass a tough test" help, I will also be there for you.

I love to teach and I love meeting a great variety of students. I believe anyone can learn a language and that it can be fun as well. I am very committed to helping all my students reach fluency efficiently.

I always see learning a language as an exciting journey. I have a Master's degree in French from Arizona State and 25 years of teaching experience. I also worked as a language professor at Elmhurst
College, IL and at Indiana University Northwest. I have taught thousands of hours.

The lesson covers affirmative and negative questions both by intonation and by using question words. Students will learn vocabulary for question words as well as how to form questions in French.

Asking Basic Questions in French
Language level: I try to make all of my lessons easily adaptable to different levels, but this is geared more towards beginners then we will go up from there.

Grade level: 7th grade through university level.

Don't forget the difference between "demander quelque chose" (to ask something) and "poser une question" (to ask a question)...

Experienced teacher of 5 years, specializing in the beginner through intermediate french student! All ages welcome. Lessons are made so that the student can learn faster than a normal school. I will help you build a solid foundation of the language. I also make the experience fun and engaging for the student.

About Mark
Bonjour. It’s Mark here. I’m very happy to meet you and welcome to Learn French at Home! A bit about me, I’m French, born and raised in north of France until I decided I wanted to see the world! So I went to India a couple of years, Canada then US. I finally decided to settle in Montreal for a few years. Learning other languages made me reflect on my mother tongue. And I got that question : what would be the most efficient way if I had to teach it? That’s pretty much why I went back to the University and started studying French teaching. I got my bachelor degree from University of Rouen in Normandy. I’ve been teaching for more than 5 years now and I really love it. I always have a great time with my students. I really want to focus my classes on their needs to achieve their goals. I will be very happy to meet you soon and I’m impatient to
start our classes. A bientôt!
