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.
With many years of teaching experience, I know that the key of success for learning a language is the quality of the relationship between the student and the tutor. My duty is to understand the way you learn and adapt my teaching to your skills....regular work and motivation are the other elements ;-)
About me :
I am from the south-west of France.. I really like my native language and I am deeply interested in the history of France, its literature, culture, cuisine...and I am also very international as I lived abroad many years, and enjoyed it so much ! I have traveled a lot, met a lot of people and learned different languages such as English, Spanish & Bulgarian...so I've been a learner all my life. I understand the learning mechanisms.
I've also helped a lot of people in their study of French : homework, conversations, pronunciation, French for business, pleasure, practical life, personal projects...thus, I teach different levels (beginners to advanced) and different abilities.
I will adapt to your level and your needs. We will choose the topics together. It could vary from very practical conversations to cultural topics : music, books, photography (my hobby), trips, cinema, sport, etc.. Sometimes, we will go through some vocabulary and grammar rules...your French will improve quickly !
The main idea is that you and I are having a great time together, having fun seeing your improvements lesson after lesson :-) Hope to meet you soon
UPDATE 20/21: The students I have tutored for the DELF and DALF exams have all successfully passed the exams; KS3: A / A+; GCSE: A+
Bonjour, my name is Marion, I am 31 years old and I am French.
Being a native French speaker and fluent in English, passionate about languages and having been down the path of learning a new language myself, I understand the struggles that a new language learner might have and I know how to be successful, whatever level you decide you want to achieve.
All the lessons are ONLINE, through Zoom or Skype and will last 55mn (or 25mn for half an hour). I use various various contents such as: workbooks, audio documents, videos and I am trying to keep up to date with the constant flow of new learning material to give you the best experience. My aim is to make learning French as fun as possible, while matching your needs and reaching your goals. After each lesson, I would send you an email with a recap of what had been covered (+ materials), what you can do at home to practise - only if you want - and what we would cover on the next lesson so you know exactly where you are at.
My background: After obtaining my Baccalauréat in Economic and Social Sciences, I studied 5 years to become an osteopath in France. In 2016 I left my home country to spend one year working and traveling in New-Zealand. I spent another two years in Australia and in 2019 I decided to move to the UK.
A few years ago, when I was in bed at night and almost ready to sleep, I used to ask myself this question : "Why would people want to learn French? Are they crazy?"
Well... Are you?
It definitely takes guts for someone to take the obscure path of French learning, especially when you know that almost no francophone can speak French perfectly. And it is this courageous desire detected in French learners that made me want to start teaching this language three years ago. In fact, besides the syntactic complexity of this language (which, by the way, is most likely to be a cliché), French is a very poetic language, as it allows countless accesses to figurative speeches (so if you tend to be a little sarcastic at times, this might be perfect for you). Plus, French is cool and sounds fancy too, so... 😗
Whether you plan to
I would be very happy to help you achieve your goals and share my knowledge and advices with you as best I can. Please do book a 30 minute trial session with me to discuss your needs!
About me : My name is Clarysse. I am 22 years old, I've been teaching Latin and French for the past two years and I am very passionate about everything I do. If I had to describe myself in three words as a tutor, I would say funny, methodical and adaptable.
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 !
Bonjour, Hello, Hola!
I'm Lola from France and I'm an experienced french teacher with more than 2000 hours of lessons.
I've started doing this online full time job 2 years ago when I decided to leave France and to go overseas to start a new life. So here I am, traveling around and living in different countries while teaching french to lovely students.
I would say that my biggest assets are that I'm a serious, committed and a dedicated teacher who really wants her students to progress and be happy with themselves.
One thing that I love above all : seeing my students getting more and more confidents and, as a consequence, getting better everyday.
I invite you to watch my video presentation for more details and don't hesitate to book a free trial session with me, we can discuss all the details and doubts you have about this great experience : learning a new language !
I've been teaching online since 2016, having in the previous 15 years worked with young people, adults and foreigners of all levels.
In my opinion, enthusiasm, patience, humour and understanding are the keys for efficient learning. I also like to have discussions, and give my students readings and writing exercises.
If you have an intermediate level, we can speak about any topic that interests you. My interests include ecology and self sufficiency, architecture, history, geopolitics, philosophy, Asian food, horses, and nature.
Hi, I'm Amandine, a native French living in Cali, Colombia and a language coach here for adults and teenagers.
My main focus in creating classes for you is to understand your learning process to help you be autonomous as soon as possible. AND to make it FUN and ENJOYABLE!
I have helped people of ALL LEVELS and dozens of nationalities. I have prepared people for their DELF / DALF / TEF / TEFAQ. I have coached people for job interviews in French, university students needing help with essays and presentations... You name it!
So whatever your profile is, we will tailor the class to YOUR needs and goals. The method used will therefore depend on YOU. The tools we can/will use are:
- conversation (where we will work together on different linguistic points while discussing and exchanging on our respective cultures);
- activities focused on listening comprehension (using videos, songs, podcasts, etc.);
- reading, written comprehension and pronunciation exercises (with articles, texts, song lyrics, etc.);
- grammar lessons and exercises;
- written production...
But as I said, the number 1 condition for learning a language is to gain the necessary self-confidence, to be relaxed and open in order to find the courage to express yourself. The goal is simply to COMMUNICATE!
Get onboard your French journey with me!
See you soon!
I wasn’t always a French tutor. I have been working with and for various companies for over 15 years.
I am passionate about languages since my youngest years. During my long stays abroad, I used to teach my roommates and friends. A few years ago, I decided to teach my native language in a more formal way. I started on a volunteering basis, teaching French to migrants.
After a while, I felt the need to improve my mastery of French teaching. That’s the reason why I decided to get a certification with the Cavilam Alliance Française of Vichy. There, I was trained according to the action-oriented approach recommended by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
As a certified teacher, I am able to provide you with customised, dynamic, playful lessons based on your individual needs. My goal is also to help you to learn how to learn with pleasure! Whatever your level or goals are, we will build up, together, the best learning plan for yourself.
A bientôt !
My name is Louise, I live in Nantes (France) and I am a certified French teacher. After travelling around the world, I decided to become a French teacher so I could share my love for the French language and culture mix.
I have taught to very different students : complete beginners, advanced levels, chidren, teenagers, adults, both online and face-to-face...I have a Master degree in Teaching French.
My method :
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” [Benjamin Franklin]
I am convinced that we learn by doing. That's why my students are fully involved in their learning process and are always DOING (and RE-DOING). I am a very organised teacher and I do all I can so that you can progress in French and reach your goals. If you're looking to learn grammar rules by heart without even understanding them, I might not be the good fit for you ! 😉
I could sum up my method in 3 words : ADAPTATION - ORGANISATION - ACTION
Feel free to book a trial lesson with me to evaluate your level, define your needs and desires in order to build a lesson plan together. 😉
Bonjour, c'est Caroline.
Originally from Brittany in France. I am currently in Bali, living the dream ;=)
Through the years, teaching French became a real passion for me, and I think that I enjoy the progress of my students as much as they do !
Depending on your level, your needs and your expectations, I will build the lessons including more or less grammar and as soon as you feel ready for it, we will focus on conversation practice. Conversation is a good way to improve fast both your speaking and understanding skills while keeping the classes interactive and fun !
I love to talk about lots of different things and I will make sure that each lesson covers a different topic. Be assured that I won't forget to rectify your pronunciation if necessary.
Writing being a very important part of the learning process, we can practice that too. It's a very efficient way to see your weaknesses in grammar and vocabulary and to correct them.
I teach in a dynamic and engaging way and use conversation as one of my main tools, so you’ll get plenty of talking time. My teaching materials are constantly updated and I use lots of different tools such as videos, audios, texts and even crosswords if you like !
I wish you a happy day and hope to see you soon online for a trial class!
A bientôt !
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.
Bonjour ! My name is Adeline & I'm a full-time French teacher. I also speak English fluently and a bit of Spanish. I live in France, my home country, and I like to do conversational classes to teach my language, and sometimes a bit of my culture, to foreigner students. If you want to know a little bit more about me, here are the things I'm passionate about: cooking, gardening, video games, nature, travels and other cultures. I also enjoy learning new things therefore do not hesitate to tell me everything about your very own interests :)
I love meeting new people and I really look forward talking with you soon!
Whether you are here to learn French from scratch, or to improve that language, you've come to the right person. As I can speak English and Spanish, don't worry if your French is not completely fluent: we will work on it together. I learned my other languages while travelling so I'm very aware about the fact that the best way to learn a language is by practicing it everyday in casual conversations.
I usualy like to start with a first conversation to evaluate your French level and your goals. We will then decide together what kind of class, duration and frequency best suits your needs, level and availability. Then I will adapt the way I speak and teach to your personal needs.
We will spend the majority of our time together having conversations in French and, if you want, I also can provide formal lessons with exercices & oral or written comprehension.
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 !
Bonjour ! My name is Stéphanie.
I am a very friendly and relaxed teacher and I will make you feel at ease with me (which is primeval when learning a new language). According to your level, needs and desires, I am using different media and resources. If you are beginners, I prefer using numerical methods responding to the progression of the Common European Framework of Reference. A language has to be spoken; that is why I often start and finish classes working on oral production while I am correcting you on a Google doc, not to be interrupting you.
I always remain available for my students on Whatsapp or by email, to answer any questions or doubts you may have. My availabilities are flexible so after the free trial lesson, we could agree on a personalized schedule.
On a more personal note, I have always shown a great interest for languages, new cultures and travelling. I used to be an air hostess, living in London, Barcelona and finally Dubai; this is when I decided to become a French Teacher, as I was starting giving lessons to a few of my friends and colleagues. So I passed my French Teaching Diploma certified by the Alliance française. I wanted to be able to work anywhere around the world. But here I am now, back to my hometown in Southwest of France, teaching French online and also proposing French immersion home stay with yoga and meditation classes, which are my main interests.
Please click on the link below to learn more about me and... I look forward to meeting you :-)
A bientôt !

BONJOUR! My name is Charlotte and I’m looking forward to becoming your FRENCH TEACHER :-)
I’m 33 years old, was born in Geneva, Switzerland and I currently live in Cali, Colombia. I’m a native French and English speaker and I’m fluent in Spanish too.
I’ve been teaching French since 2018 and I’ve had students of all AGES, LEVELS and BACKGROUND. In your first class, we will discuss your GOALS and evaluate your LEVEL, so I can prepare a TAILOR-MADE program for you! I provide everything from articles, to grammar, vocabulary, exercises, etc. So all you have to worry about is to SHOW UP and PRACTICE!
I also like to focus on your CONVERSATION skills and help you improve your PRONUNCIATION, with my method you will be talking French in no time! I always come to class PREPARED and with a BIG SMILE !
I like making my lessons FUN using real life contexts, cultural aspects, visual aids and games. Most importantly I love to teach and see you improving your French!
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!
Originally from Paris, where I trained and taught French to both school students and adult learners, I also studied in London and worked in Scotland. I'm currently based in Spain. I have vast experience in teaching in-person and online.
I am a friendly, positive, patient and adaptable teacher. Lessons are taught in a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. For me, teaching is a ongoing passion and my aim is to encourage you and build your confidence. All lessons are tailored to each student's specific requirements, skills and objectives. My guiding principle is that learning should be a fun, passionate and pleasant adventure.
I am a French-speaking Quebecer and I have been a teacher of French as a Foreign Language for several years. I teach online in different language schools and web platforms. I offer dynamic and playful classes where conversation and fun are the order of the day!
In addition to teaching, I work in translation, tutoring and responsible tourism.
I am a digital nomad and I have been traveling the world for a few years. I am passionate about travel, the outdoors, social dancing, cooking, personal development, culture and of course linguistics and the learning!
My teaching methods are very varied and focused on the practical and participative approach.
Whether it is for a trip, a move abroad, a professional project or for your simple personal curiosity, I adapt to the levels and needs of each learner.
During the first session, we will take a moment to discuss your needs, expectations and goals. Then, depending on your profile, we will do a few introductory activities in my teaching methods and end with a discussion on a individualized course plan. Finally, it will be up to you to decide if you want to continue learning French with me!
My availabilities are flexible and variable. For organizational reasons, they are not all listed on my calendar and I prefer to exchange with you by message before booking a trial class. However, do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions and set up a personalized schedule with you.
I am looking forward to meeting you!

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
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 people have other, more specific goals. Let your tutor know what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your personal needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
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. Lessons are sometimes taken via LanguaTalk 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. Note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
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 are 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! Book a trial today to see if taking French lessons on Zoom/Skype works well for you.
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
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, experience, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever 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.
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.
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 of the tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and they can speak English too.
Each tutor is unique - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right tutor for you.
Our booking system is designed to be easy to use. You can see tutors' available slots in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to buy them one at a time, or purchase 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. Please note that this can be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. We have this policy to be fair to tutors, who cannot replace lessons at the last minute and need some form of income protection.
French lessons via Zoom/Skype tend to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel. Online French tutors may cost between $14 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, French tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, receiving French tutoring via Zoom or Skype 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.
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 students who take multiple French lessons on Zoom/Skype each week will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months. 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.
Most tutors offer both Skype and Zoom as options for the lessons. If they only offer one of these, this will be stated on their profile. Both tools are free, easy to use and perfect for language learning. They allow you to do everything you would do in a physical classroom: speak, listen, read, write, and share learning materials. Your tutor will typically write corrections directly in the chat area so that you can later revise everything you’ve learnt.
Most French tutors using Skype/Zoom also use other technologies and resources to enhance the learning experience, for example Google Docs (for real-time collaboration), videos, and PowerPoint slides. If you're unable to take the French lessons via Zoom or Skype, please contact our support team and we’ll get in touch with the tutor you're interested in to see if they're able to use an alternative video technology, such as Google Meet.
Students sometimes feel unsure about learning online because they think it won't be as effective as 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 on Zoom/Skype, 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.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on many factors, such as your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take 1-on-1 French lessons on Zoom/Skype, you can use a free app like Duolingo to build your vocab. And to improve your listening skills, you can try watching TV and listening 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 private lessons that are tailored to your personal needs by an experienced teacher.
