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.

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.

I’ve taken both private and small group sessions here and have been very happy with the professionalism of the teachers and the staff. I highly recommend it to others.

Excellent language school. I love how the classes could be tailored week to week and the small group sizes. Alexie, the instructor for the B1/B2 group class, is awesome! One of the best French instructors I have ever had. Really everyone who works there is incredibly kind and helpful. Highly recommend.

French As You Like It is an wonderful French school that I strongly recommend for all levels of French speakers who are hoping to improve their language skills. I participated in the group classes where I had the opportunity to converse with peers and also receive specialized support from the teacher. The team at FAYLI truly cares about helping you meet your French learning goals and will support you through the experience. In my first week, I felt that I was in a class a bit too advanced for my level. The team at FAYLI was incredibly understanding and flexible - they listened to my concern and offered me an additional week of classes at a reduced rate. This is an excellent learning environment and my French has definitely advanced. I cannot recommend this school enough - if you want to improve your French language skills, go to FAYLI!

It really depends on who your teacher is. I attended for 1 month during the summer of 2020. I would not recommend this place for beginners. My class was for “beginners”, but we had an array of different level students. I remember an advanced student who would get frustrated and answer&correct the beginner level students when answering questions or reading. Then there would be moments where the advanced student and teacher has full on conversations while others just sat and stared. I had 2 different teachers during my 4 weeks there and the teaching method was day and night! My first two weeks, Everyday the lessons went over my head… there was no structure and each day would be a different topic or lesson. Nothing stuck and I felt confused everyday. Then the last two weeks, we had a different teacher and it was structured and every lesson was built upon the last lesson. I knew what to study and I learned from each lesson. We went over what we learned in a way you memorized it. So it really depends on the teacher. I had Alexi for my last 2 weeks.
