5 étoiles de plus ! C'est une bonne école, la preuve étant que je rédige ce commentaire en français ! Leila et Alexie me font sentir comme à la maison dans leur atelier de conversation. J'en sors toujours avec une confiance renouvelée pour m'exprimer dans la langue de Molière. Je reviendrai lors de mon prochain séjour parisien !

This is a wonderful French language school in Paris that was just right for me. My husband and I travel to France a couple of times a year and often stay for several weeks. Our French is functional but I wanted to practice my conversation skills and become more at ease in speaking. I took the small group class for Intermediate level speakers at FAYLI, learned a lot of French, absolutely accomplished my goals, and loved every minute. Leila, our teacher, was very skilled at encouraging and facilitating conversation in the class while teaching us some of the finer points of French grammar. She also did a wonderful job of giving us a window on French daily life and culture and on the living language - how French people really speak their language - within a context of the rules of usage. The other students were from various countries, and all were so congenial and equally eager to learn and share, that the class was just a fun place to be every day. I also appreciated the flexible schedule and variety of offerings. The entire staff is very welcoming, professional and friendly. They create a welcoming atmosphere that encourages students to speak without fear of judgement, and honestly after just a few days the school felt like a family. I will miss everyone there and hope to attend again in the future.

I researched numerous French language schools that offered small group learning before I came to Paris. I’m so glad I picked FAYLI! My teacher, Leila was wonderful, classes were fun, I progressed in my French, met interesting classmates, and got to practice what I learned exploring the wonderful Marais district in which FAYLI is located. Merci beaucoup FAYLI!

Great French class; great teacher, lots of fun!
我在FAYLI上了一個星期的課程,包括1.5小時的團體課+1.5小時的個人課,兩個體驗都非常好。 1. 小班制,我那個星期團體課只有四個人,練習機會很多。 2. 同學都是年紀差不多或是更年長的人,大家的生活經驗都很豐富,這樣對話內容才會有趣。 3. Leila老師引導的技巧很好,會給我們很多話題讓我們有更多靈感。 4. 個人課的老師Olivia也很棒,很有活力、很有耐心,很用心準備話題,跟她上課很舒服。 5. 我喜歡這樣小規模的學校,每個人都互相認識,每天早上一進教室,就可以喝到學校親自為我們準備的咖啡,開始一天的課程,對像我一個這樣來自很遠的國家、獨自旅行的人來說,感到非常溫暖。(我來自台灣) 即使只有短短一個星期,我覺得我的法文口語能力也有了明顯的進步,以後有機會回到巴黎,我會再來這裡上課。 我自己在台灣也是一個語言老師+語言中心的經營者,以教學專業的角度來說,我也非常推薦這裡。

Our decision to attend French As You Like It far exceeded our expectations in terms of a learning community that is fun and educational. It gave structure and focus to our day during our 4 week stay. I attended the A level and my husband attended the B level. Leila, Alexi and Marguerite made us feel so welcome and we learned so much. Classmates were diverse, adventuresome and fun. We laughed a lot! I got covid during my stay so I zoomed the class for 2 days. Leila knew the technology and expertly wove me into the classroom. Highly recommend.
It was very easy to sign up and join an intensive beginner class at French as You Like It. I attended one week of class while in Paris and everyone was welcoming and put me at ease. The classes were helpful and the students very open and laid back. It was a fun and fruitful experience and I’ll definitely take another class in the future!
