Online private lessons
Enjoy a one-to-one session with your tutor. Your pace, your style, your goals. Pick a date and time according to YOUR schedule to arrange a French lesson every week, because regularity is the key to improving. Every one-to-one lesson is 1h long* but 30 min and 45 min long French classes are available because as a learner myself, I know language practise can be very intense.
French lessons only tailored to your needs. Choose any type of lessons that suits you best.
Online group lessons
Learning with your partner, your dearest friends or even complete strangers is more your thing ? Enjoy the intimacy yet the conviviality of a small group to gather our passion for French. Up to 5/6 students to allow everyone to practise as much as possible in various situations. Each session will last 1h30* for 3/4 students and 2 hours* when at least 5 students.
Online French on specific purposes
Planning to travel, work, study in France or French-speaking countries ? Preparing for a (sometimes stressful) French exam (GCSE, DELF, DALF, TCF) ? Aiming at improving your pronunciation skills to order a nice meal at a restaurant without the waiter rolling an eye ? You name it, and I’ll adapt the material to your specific needs.
