Private Lessons: Our Approach

Our methodology focuses on the improvement of oral skills. Through private French lessons you will broaden your vocabulary and expressions relevant to your daily and professional life in France.

In order to achieve maximum progress, we evaluate your French language level, analyze your needs, and together set the objectives of your training prior to starting the lessons.

You will be carefully paired with one of our skilled French teachers who will use a range of methods, from role-playing to interactive videos to intense conversation, to help you achieve your goals.

We do more than help you learn the language, however. Our teachers help you to understand French in the context of French life and culture. We believe that obtaining unique insights into Parisian culture while learning the French language makes for a richer and more satisfying experience in France.

For this reason, we offer the exciting option of having Paris as your classroom! No need to learn about French food in a book – you can learn while wandering the Marché Raspail with your teacher. Fashion lovers can schedule a lesson in the Palais Galliera, Paris’s fashion museum. History buffs might favor a private lesson at Versailles. The opportunities for real-life learning are endless.
