I had my first lesson with Marjan yesterday and it was wonderful! She balanced getting through the material well without overwhelming me while balancing being personable as well. She also had prepared written materials that she emailed which was very helpful to study. Looking forward to more lessons!

About Erika I.

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

Another great class with Erika. She makes sure we get as much conversational practice as is possible. She always conducts an excellent class, and I'm glad to have her as an instructor. Thank you, Erika; I learned a lot today.

I've been teaching French for 3 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

The lesson today was very valuable and challenging. We worked on things that were top of my mind to go forward and Fabrice spent a good deal of time laying a solid ground in pronunciation and conversation.

French is my second language, but 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 private lessons.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

French is my native language, but I do understand the joy & challenges of approaching a new language, as I also learned English, Italian and Tunisian (dialect of Arabic).

I'm looking forward to meeting you online, in a coffee shop or at home (yours or mine, in Chicago).

À bientôt!

I had a couple of sessions with Meriem during the transition between my French 1 and 2 classes. We went over rudimentary things that I didn't get in class and now everything makes so much sense. Good pronunciation is definitely the key and Meriem knows how to lead you there. I also really enjoyed the examples she gave based on songs lyrics. That's a great method!

Everyone faces their own personal challenges when learning a foreign language, and I remember that mastering the French vowel system was a great challenge for me.

French Grammar Basics: When to Use Tu and Vous
Mixing up your tu's and vous? Let French tutor Carol Beth L. break it down for you... As modern-day English speakers, most of us are accustomed to using only one word for “you.” It doesn't matter if we are talking to one person, many people, old people, young people, teachers, doctors, children, or anyone else. In some languages, this is not always the case – and French is one of them. French grammar provides French-speakers with two ways to say “you”: “tu” (pronounce it almost like the English

The French language uses several different verb forms to talk about events that occurred in the past. French tutor Carol Beth L. shares her guide to one of those forms, the imparfait...
