Mr. Jean-Luc B. was a great teacher and my son really learned a lot from him during the summer. This learning has helped him to do well during the school year. I would highly recommend Mr. Jean-Luc B to anyone wanting to learn French as he was highly punctual and his way of teaching was very clear and understandable.

I have been teaching for over ten years and most recently for USG officers on a one-on-one basis, as well as in group setting. In addition I conduct online classes for them as well as for private students, whose levels range from beginners to level 4. Born, raised and educated in France, my style is unique as I adapt myself to the student's needs, creating lessons plans based on the student's abilities and progress. I emphasis speaking over all. I measure progress on a regular basis, so as to adjust myself to the students strengths and helping the student to reach the assigned goal.

I have taken French and Italian with Philippe and it has been a great experience. He provides helpful resources and focuses on functional, realistic conversations. He has helped me improve my language skills in a non-stressful manner.
Allison
Mr Fadi is very welcoming and professional. Our first lesson was conducted at my pace and the course outline was discussed. He provides multiple resources to aid in learning and really cares about understanding the language versus regurgitating phrases. I look forward to working with him!

I can highly recommend Phillippe. He is a pleasure to have discussions with in order to practice speaking and offers many many different resources to help. He does this all without causing anxiety or pressure on the student learning. He is patient and very kind

French is my second language, but it often feels as it if were the first, as I have been speaking it for so many years on an everyday, educational, and professional basis. I have official native-level proficiency. 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). Culture is also a big part of learning a language, and I am well versed in French literature, pop culture, idioms, and more.
Recently, one of my first TakeLessons students passed her B2 exam, which allows her to apply to French universities. It's not an easy exam, the culmination of several years of classes and several months of test-prepping.
I edited a 240-page scholarly book in French, "De La Case A La Villa" (published 2014), and have spoken on French-language television and at professional conferences.
I give both private and group lessons.

We had a wonderful experience doing online lessons with Ms Diane. My son was engaged and interested in the lesson times and he looked forward to seeing Ms Diane every week. We intend to resume lessons once the summer is over.

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

Living in France for 8 years now and having completed my Master's in teaching French as a second and foreign language at l'Université de Lyon 2, I am more than capable of helping you learn a language that I have loved for years. I've been teaching French for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of French culture and language! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in French phonetics so that you will be able to pronounce everything correctly.

I like to keep my lessons fun and interactive and I pull resources from many different places. Currently the books I'm using primarily in instruction are: Latitudes, Alter Ego, Tex's French Grammar, Liberté, and Supermax (for kids). I also use many online exercises, songs, videos, and articles to supplement for listening and reading exercises.

I have received my DELF B2 and I am currently teaching French online to students. I can help you if you are a complete beginner or lower intermediate and looking to take lessons with a native English speaker to help understand the nuances of the French language. I lived in France for 6 months and Morocco for two years, so I have experience using this language.

"I wasn't sure about learning a language in an online environment, but Philippe has done a great job of incorporating multiple tools and interactive components to the online lessons. Also, because he takes a very applied and conversation-based approach to teaching French, I've grown substantially in my language skills over the term. Text books and exercises are good to an extent, but it's in applied conversations that you can really grow your vocabulary and become comfortable with a language."

Can You Learn French With Duolingo?

I haven't learned a new language for a long time, but I am still on the journey of using a language that is not my native language. My first language is French, and my second language is English. Before immersing myself in English full time by moving to New York 10 years ago, I learned English for 15 years as part of my education.  Recently, I came across an app called Duolingo, and let me tell you, I wish I could have had access to Duolingo all this time!
