Why French as you like It ?

Why French as you like It ?

It’s why you can either learn here at the school, online, or have a tutor come to you. At work, at home, at a hotel, in a café, wherever suits.

We offer lessons 7 days a week from 7 am to 9 pm, including weekends and bank holidays. In short, when you’re free to do them.

Our course is tailored to the level you need, and when you need to get there.

Our tutors are native French, with Master’s degrees and years of experience working with students from toddlers to top executives.

Every course comes with regular, scheduled online follow-up from your tutor, and feedback from students at the school.

You’ll have access to course admin, lesson schedules, French level tests, class notes and lesson reminders, online, just when you need them. We can even help you find accommodation here in Paris, and print any official documents.

French As You Like It is the most flexible and fastest way to learn French. Therefore, the most efficient way to get to your goals.

Excellent experience at French As You Like It! Warm, welcoming, and flexible. Helped my daughter to improve her speaking skills and confidence during our trip to Paris. Highly recommend!

We gave FAYLI a big task teaching to our family with a large age range and very limited french training - dealing with summer brain and vacation motivation. Our instructor Helene did a great job teaching to the verying levels and FAYLI set up the perfect schedule for us.

We just completed our third visit to French as You Like It. All of our children have attended from Australia for a week or 2 of lessons at a time. We love the school, the teachers are very good and caring and the school is run so well by Marguerite and Simon. They make it fun for the kids, including a visit to the local markets to learn teh french names for the produce! The school has been very accomodating to our travel arrangements and we love the new premises and addition of Fluffy the dog (chienne!). We hope to be back again. Highly recommend to other families this gem in Paris, your children will love it!

This school offers great personal attention to the individual learning needs of its students. My children and I are learning French and the teacher is able to accommodate our various levels and interests. The school is conveniently located as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their French.

I just finished my first day of classes at FAYLI and I am happy to offer this positive review. In the morning I participated in a small group of 6 students. Laurence, the teacher is experienced and engaging and we had good conversations and explanation. In the afternoon I had one-on-one instruction. We started at the school for the first half, then went out for the remainder. The teacher is excellent; I appreciate Celine’s broad experience and fun and interesting conversation. She is helping me with aural comprehension, and also how to navigate le Métro and visit nearby museums. Throughout the process, I have been guided by the school administrator, Alexie, who has been helpful, kind and patient. If you are looking for quality education, a stimulating environment, and a supportive community, French As You Like It is a great choice, and it is so well located, too. I feel very encouraged and excited about the week ahead.

We found the school online after a thorough search to find a school that would meet my daughter’s needs. She is an intermediate French learner preparing for her GCSEs in 2yrs. FAYLI team have given her confidence to converse better in French with improved vocabulary. This is her second week stint here (1st one about 6weeks ago) and she has really enjoyed the 1:1 tuition provided. The teachers are very professional but also amiable. They have been very flexible to work around our schedule (we seize the opportunity to have a rest as well whilst on holiday in Paris). One of her lessons included a practical session at the street market where she learnt to by items communicating in French. We look forward to many more sessions with FAYLI. Thank you team FAYLI.

Lovely people, warm and welcoming staff and surroundings and engaging students… in a perfect and central location. The small group format is perfect for putting learning into practice!

I am 62 and I came to Paris for 2 months to work on my French and my cooking. The staff at FAYLI was beyond accomodating and kind . I feel like my French has definitely improved and I have some basic skills to continue my efforts at home. I HIGHLY recommend this language school. I will miss you all when I return home.
