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.

Located at 23 Rue du Petit Musc, 75004. Our boutique French school is right here in Paris’s historic center.
You can have your lessons at our school, online or other locations of your choosing.
How you learn French with us is very much up to you. But whichever way you choose, we give you every help along the way. 
We give regular follow-up and helpful feedback right through your course. You can even call or visit us for advice and extra work. That way, you get more out of learning.

I'm really enjoying my classes with FAYLI. Great foundation classes for beginners in the French language.

I've been to other French schools in the past, but really don't feel like I've ever had such a rewarding experience as I did at FAYLI. The focus of the classes was far less 'academic' and actually relevant to learning conversational French. I enjoyed both teachers I had and just wish I'd spent more than a week here. I would return in a heart beat.

I don't even have the words to describe how much I can recommend this language school. I participated in the Thursday evening conversation classes and I absolutely loved every single one of them. The classes helped me to get over the barrier of speaking thanks to its welcoming atmosphere and small group. Over the course of 6 weeks I was able to immensely improve my French while not just learning more about the language, but also the culture. All teachers were amazing, a huge thank you to Christelle and Hélène! But also thanks to the whole team for organising everything in such a helpful and warm matter (Alexie, Marguerite and Simon)! Joining this language school was the best decision I could have made and if you still wonder if you should, then see this as a sign to join in, too 🙂
Very nice and intimate French school. Small groups and friendly and competent tutors.

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!
