David started out right away encouraging me to speak French, even when I didn't remember anything! He eased me right into the real world, not just spouting vocabulary words and grammar. That's exactly what I wanted!

French is the second most widely learnt foreign language in the world. Spoken in France – consistently ranked the most popular overseas destination for people in Britain – and in many other countries including Canada, Switzerland, it is easy to see why knowledge of French is such an asset.

Whether you want to take French classes to travel or to immerse yourself in its rich culture of fine food and wine, haute couture and great authors, our French courses will equip you with the language you need to get by, have a conversation or become fully proficient

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all".

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

you could tell that he not only was a good and patient teacher but that he was interested in well being and was exceptional in his creative approach to teaching! most definitely a 5 star teacher.

I give Gina a 5 star because it doesn't have a 10. She is awesome, smart, fun, and caring. I take Spanish and makes so much easier because she also speaks fluent Portuguese (my native language), and she can explain the difference between both language. I highly recommend Gina :)

"Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well."

French Grammar Rules: How to Conjugate Common Irregular Verbs

Last week, French tutor Carol Beth L. treated us to a great lesson on conjugating regular verbs. This week, we look at conjugating common irregular French verbs... French grammar is full of irregularities and exceptions. They make sense when you understand the phonetic and grammatical in's and out's of the language, but can still be difficult to navigate – especially at the beginning. Covering every single irregular French verb out there, therefore, is a difficult task to tackle in just one …
