I am Chantal, a native French speaker. I also speak English fluently, and I have some knowledge of Spanish. I have been a Certified Secondary School Teacher for 20+ years, and I am still just as passionate about teaching!
Together, we will practice the four skills of language learning: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. For having learned two languages myself, I understand how intimidating language classes can sometimes be. That’s why I craft your lessons according to your level, and personal needs.
I provide the material and tools you need, and I am opened to any suggestions in terms of material or topics. I use pictures, videos, songs, articles, and more to make the lessons varied and enriching.
On a more personal note, I love reading, traveling and discovering new cultures, craft booking, collecting vintage postcards… among many other things. My motto is: "Be kind".
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me better. I look forward to seeing you in class.
Hi ! I am Charlotte !
I am a native french speaker and a graduated French teacher !
If you want to learn french or to improve your french skills, you are in the right place 😉
What I teach 📚:
How I teach 👩🏫:
Usually, during the first lesson, we will talk about what you want to learn in French and why. This way I can understand your goals and adapt my teaching.
I like to create a lesson around a theme, this way I can gather different activities around it. For example, we can start with vocabulary, then read a text about the theme, do a few exercises about it to see if you understand it then talk about it. I also implement games at the end of the lesson so you can reemploy what you have learnt during the lesson.
I usually use Google Docs, Padlet and/or Powerpoint for my lessons, according to what I am going to teach (for example if I need to share a digital media with you, I will put it on Padlet).
I graduated my FLE master's degree, I also have a BA degree in French language and literature and a BA degree in English language, literature, foreign and regional civilisation.
I help, motivate and encourage anyone to have a better understanding, extend knowledge and improve confidence.
Tuition for Interviews, AP, IB, SAT,..., International French Diploma DELF, DALF, TCF,...and TEFaQ
I've taught in France, Denmark, India, Russia, Hong Kong and Berlin since 2009. I have a Didactic of Languages diploma from La Sorbonne University. I teach anyone from 4 years-old.
Lessons are tailored to each student using different books, music or movies to dispense knowledge of the French language and its culture. I look forward to meeting you!
Hello! My name is Laurent. I'm French, live near Paris and I work there as an engineer. I have always liked to learn languages. I can speak English, Portuguese, French Creole and obviously French. I know how difficult it is to learn a new language. For me, the best way to learn a language is to speak it, to be able to communicate with someone. Together we will practice conversation, reading, writing, listening and pronunciation with different kinds of supports. So if you want to start it, let's plan a lesson with me. Please refer to my schedule for availability.
My name is Florence. I come from France and I am an experienced French teacher for foreigners, certified by the Alliance Française de Paris and hold a Master’s degree in FLE (french for foreigners) to teach you my mother tongue. I have experience teaching a wide range of adults from all continents and at all levels.
But also ... before starting to teach French full-time and because of a double technical and commercial training, I worked for a long time in marketing and international trade for companies in various sectors of activities: electrical construction, car accessories, shoes… I also created my own business to distribute my creations of costume jewelry.
I’m originally from the East of France, a small town near the Swiss border, and I've been around a lot! I have lived in different regions of France: from North to South, from East to West, from Paris to Nice, from Lyon to Albi. After living in Valparaiso, Chile, I returned to Europe and then settled in Spain for almost 15 years. Today, I live in Alicante with my family.
I hope to meet you very soon and share very pleasant sessions with you. Please note that I made the choice to teach online only to ADULTS.
See you soon !
Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn French!
I've been teaching French for some years now and I'm myself passionate about languages. As a matter of fact I speak six languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, a little bit of Dutch and Italian). I know how hard and challenging it can be to learn a new language, and I strongly believe that practice is key to improve and learn a new language. So, be ready to speak with me! Of course, we will go through grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, and I'll structure my lessons according to your needs (without forgetting the practice). I also believe that learning should be fun because when you're having fun, things get easier and you will feel more confident.
So, ready to learn?
I graduated in French Literature, Philosophy and History (Université Paris 10), and I hold a M. Sc. in Global Change Management (HNE Eberswalde).
Before I moved to São Paulo, Brazil, I lived five years in Berlin where I started to teach. There I tutored privately and also gave literacy classes in German for young refugees. From May 2017 to September 2017, I did training to be a French teacher and I taught French at the Technical University of Berlin for three semesters.
At the moment, I work with several language schools in São Paulo (IFESP, Versátil Idiomas, and the French Alliance). I have experience with teaching to all levels and ages. I also have experience in creating didactic material.
In parallel to my teaching activities, I also have a solid experience with translation work (English, German, Portuguese > French).
My methodology adapts to fit your desires, needs, and interests.
Depending on your objective with the French language (pass a test, work, travel, personal curiosity, etc.), I offer a customised learning path with lively and playful lessons.
During the last four years, I have gathered a large online collection of methods and teaching materials allowing me to build a learning path that is adapted for you. I can provide these free of charge.
Hello, my name is Marvin, I am French but I live in Galicia, west of Spain. I have been an online teacher for three years now during which I have given more than 1600 lessons. Also, I am currently finishing my master's degree in didactics to teach French. And before that, I graduated from the Alliance Française to be certified as a professional teacher.
During my lessons, I know how to be flexible to adapt to your needs and your personality. If you want conversation classes, we can discuss freely or prepare the session through an article or any other authentic document and I will bring you the necessary corrections over the course of the exchange. If you are looking to improve a particular language point, my goal will be to expose you to it and help you determine how it works. In addition, thanks to my knowledge of the different levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, I can adapt my level of French as well as the topics worked on to each person. My students highlight that I am very patient and also reactive and precise in answering their various questions.
I myself have experience in language learning. I speak English and Spanish at an advanced level, I have some notions of German and Japanese and I am currently learning Galician. I am therefore aware of the different stages in learning a language and I will be able to help you both from my point of view as a teacher and as a student.
Hello, my name is Laura, I’m 29 and I come from Paris (France). I am currently living in Mexico.
I am passionate about travelling and culture. I have been working for 5 years for Paris Tourist Office and I know many aspects of our beautiful capital city. When I used to live in Paris, I loved to explore every corner of my favorite neighborhoods. Cooking is also one of my hobbies. French gastronomy abounds with delicious recipes that I love to reproduce. I would be pleased to share all of this with you through my French lessons.
I had the opportunity to support foreigners (from the USA, China, Mexico) in learning French when they were in France. They had different needs and objectives wether they were in France to study or to work. Hence, we worked on adapted topics such as grammatical rules, conjugation or how to express oneself orally for formal or informal conversations.
For the first part of my higher education, I went to preparatory school in literature. It allowed me to get in-depth knowledge in French language, literature and history. Then I studied in an international context in which I got a Business and Entrepreneurship Bachelor and Marketing and Brand Management Master. Therefore, I am perfectly at ease to teach and offer adapted content depending on my students.
Whether you’re a beginner or intermediate level, I will gladly support you in learning French!
Together, we will the set the objectives you wish to reach depending on your level and motivations. My lessons will be adapted entirely to your needs and to your own pace. I use texts, videos, songs or even podcasts to work on every aspect of the language and to maintain dynamism. We will focus on themed conversations and study vocabulary, prononciation or grammar rules and conjugation. I speak French during the lessons so you can familiarize yourself with the accent and intonations but I can also give you explanations in English. In order to support your progress in French, I will encourage you to let me know about your preferences regarding the method and material I use.
Hi, my name is Farid. Teaching French is something I really enjoy, especially when I witness my students progressing in the language and towards their goals. I have been teaching French for almost 2 years now. Most of my students are children and teenagers, but I am also teaching adults. My lessons are usually customized to meet the needs of the students. I use different materials to teach my students; like comprehension texts, dialogues, stories, vocab materials, games..etc.. I have obtained a Level 7 Diploma in Teaching skills and I also hold a DBS check up-to-date.
In 2010, I left my birth country France to move to the United Kingdom. I am currently in Algeria for a few months, as I wanted to (re)discover my parents country. I love travelling and discovering new cultures and languages. I also speak a little Arabic.
Book now a trial with me to set the goals you want to achieve. As a French native, I can help you to improve your pronunciation in addition to the grammar. I have been living in the UK for 12 years which made me fully bilingual. With a bit of motivation and a hint of work, your French will upgrade in no time!
My name is Kevin, 29 years old, from France.
- Teaching French pronunciation
- I can improve your French Vocabulary
- Improve your skills in French with regular conversations
I am a patient tutor, calm and always listening to the students needs. You can expect to improve your general French skills in a few weeks with my lessons.
I speak French fluently, since it is my mother tongue, but also English and Italian.
Feel free to book a trial lesson if my profile sounds good to you.
Hi! I'm Méloée, I am 25 and I've been teaching French for 7 years. I lived for 7 years in Argentina and I live now in France, my home country, so I can teach you in French, English or Spanish.
I teach to all levels and ages. Conversation classes, to prepare a trip, an exam (except the DAEFLE), to learn from zero, to practice grammar... we'll see together what are your goals and preferences and I'll tailor my classes to you.
In my opinion, the quickest and best way to progress is speaking a lot, so I always try to include a lot of practice in my lessons. For example, a class may start with a text or video (more or less difficult depending on your level) to practice comprehension, then I'll ask you some specific questions about the document to see if you understood well and see the new vocabulary. Then I'll ask more generic questions around the theme of the video/text, so you talk about your opinion on the subject, related experiences... This way, you'll speak a lot and it allows me to identify easily if you may need some theoretical exercises on specific points.
But of course, I will always build my classes depending on your preferences and needs. If you are confortable using specifics learning methods or material, let me know and we will plan something together.
Let me you know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you soon!
Hi guys! It's Rita here :)
I am an enthusiastic French teacher (I also speak fluently and teach English, Russian, Spanish and German). So, your mother tongue can be all of the languages mentioned as I can speak and teach in all of these languages. Learning grammar is only one part of learning a language, the other part is to practice, practice, practice, and of course having as much fun as possible while doing so! I work with a book to give your learning a structure. However, I also choose interesting videos, audio files and conversation topics so that you get immersed into the language as much as possible.
My focus lies on the right pronunciation, to motivate you and to show you that learning a language can be lots of fun. I have lived and worked two years in the South of France and have a German diploma in translation and interpretation for French and English. I speak 7 languages and 5 of them fluently. I want to show you that it is possible to learn a new language fast and with fun. I usually need 3-4 weeks in order to speak a new language fluently. How I do it? Through as much immersion into the language as possible: reading books, comics, watching cartoons, films, YouTube videos, listening to songs, and speaking to natives in real life and online.
My students have a high success rate as I have over 15 years of teaching experience (I started tutoring the younger kids in English when I was at college, and worked as a language coach during my studies). See you very soon in your next class! Sending you lots of love, Rita
Bonjour! My name is Nordine,
I was born in France and I lived 25 years in Paris. I was a teacher for 12 years in 3 Chinese universities. This experience allowed me to develop a method which gives the possibility to learn and progress quickly. I teach from level A1 to C1 with complementary subjects such as French for tourism, Business French, French literature, French history, knowledge of France and job interview. I also prepare for French foreign language exams.
My method is based on motivation and giving the pleasure of learning a foreign language; for this, I take into account the personality and the needs of each learner.
I used my personal powerpoints, as well as various word documents and audio-videos (you get it for free after each lesson!).
So I tell you ''à bientôt!'' (See you soon!)
You may have different reasons to learn French. It can be for job opportunities, living in a French-speaking country, or just for fun. Well, don’t look any further!
I am a native French speaker, and I’ve been teaching French online since 2016. But even before starting to teach, I once was a language student. Like you!
Except, I didn’t have a tutor. I am a self-taught polyglot.
I know the struggles, the difficulties, the problems you’re having or will have during your learning process. Let’s be honest, learning a new language especially French, it’s not always "fastoche" (the equivalent for “easy-peasy”).
However, thanks to my experience in learning and teaching languages I’ve developed a method that will drastically help you learn French better.
To take a lesson with me, you don’t have to know the 17 different tenses and modes in French conjugation. You don’t even have to know what “conjugation” means. I don’t expect my students to be grammar experts as we won’t have grammar-centered lessons. Well, unless you want to torture yourself.
My approach is student-centered, I will tailor each lesson for your level, needs, and goals so you can effectively learn French in a fun way. You can book a FREE trial session now to get to know more about my approach and learning techniques!
Let's set your goal and start a work plan! There are many reasons to learn French, such as:
I can help with all of the above, and more.
It is always a pleasure to be able to have a fluent conversation (or a heated debate) with students who sometimes started as total beginners and to see them acing their exams.
As for the method, I use trusted manuals and activity books because I believe in structure, but also material that suits your interests and tastes - from literature to popular songs, news to scientific articles, series, and movies (subtitled or not), online resources and grammar exercises. Resources are shared on a Slack group where lessons are summarized, and tasks listed. I can also tailor-make lessons for a specific objective like a job interview or a power point presentation.
Teaching French has been my main activity for several years both privately and at the Alliance Française. I am outgoing and chatty, but homework is not optional (at least if you want to improve fast!).
Do not hesitate to book a trial session.
See you soon!
Hi all! My name is Miriam, I speak four languages and I have been teaching French online for 3 years. My mother tongue is Arabic and I started learning French since I was 3 years old. I started learning English in elementary school and had Spanish classes for two years at university. I also speak Italian as I currently live in Italy.
I have acquired some experience in academic support and language teaching. I would be very happy to discuss with you what interests you to help you progress in your learning. I am also available to adapt to your preferences in terms of materials and learning tools. Hope to see you soon!
Hi everyone, I'm pofesionnal, dynamic and patient teacher with 20 years of experience. Teaching is my passion. If you want to improve your language very fast, don't hesitate to write to me. We'll see together the best way to help you. Welcome to beginners, intermediate or advance students, youngs or olders. I'm also specialist with the preperation for TEF, TEFAQ or TCF exams. See you soon!!
Hello ! My name is Charlotte, from France. Learning languages is a passion of mine, along with many others :-) I welcome everyone to come and learn with me; whatever your current level, I’ll be very happy to help you gain more fluency in French. I’m very patient and will provide a cheerful and safe environment where you can talk without any stress or fear of being judged. I try to stick to French as much as possible during the lessons in order to build up your confidence about being able to navigate through your new language.
I believe in helping you master French as it is spoken/written by actual French-speaking people, not textbooks. This means adapting the material and language level to the situation. Indeed, we don’t usually speak in daily life the way a journalist does on the news. And we don’t write a formal report as we would an email to a friend. So knowing your goals and why you are learning French is essential.
A bientôt !
Hello! Do you need to "practice" to improve your French?! :)
I am Anthony. I am here to help anyone who would like to learn French with no pressure, step by step. I am a native French speaker and I already guided people to learn French, like my Indian friends I met in Bangalore during an internship in 2019. I also helped friends of friends who needed French support. The experience that gives me the love of teaching is when I was helping children to learn English, even very young kids to learn speaking French. So I am happy to help you if you need support and guidance. I invite you to contact me to see if my vibes are aligned with what you are looking for.
About me, I would say that I love dancing and practicing all kinds of "movement". It is in my blood now. I am a breathwork and meditation practitioner in my daily life. I am also a breathwork facilitator which is my main activity. I am a human and I love listening to beautiful music (Lofi, Hanz Zimmer and many more), watching series, eating spicy Indian meals, some cheese (I am French ^^), and also having a good time with friends and family. Then, I feel like an explorator and I am always curious about people's stories as well as nature and Planet Earth mysteries. Finally, I am also passionate about reading and writing. Maybe you are also writing your dreams each morning?!
About my classes, I can give you an example. One German person is learning French with me and during the class I write what the person is saying, so I can send a document at the end for reading and improving some details.

99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak French fluently. That said, some students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in French as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Most of the French tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Online French lessons are sometimes taken to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever French tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right French tutor for you.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning French online because they think it’ll be totally different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen French tutor online, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, French is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months through intensive study. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online French tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn French fast.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face French lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online French tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, French tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced French tutor is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 French lessons with a great teacher.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen to podcasts in French. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online French teacher.
