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 !
Bonjour ! I'm Adeline from France. I have a Marketing & Communication Master degree and I recently decided to change my career to teach French and work on translations. I speak English fluently and also some Spanish. I love travelling and meeting new people so I really look forward talking with you very 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. Then I will adapt the way I speak and teach to your personal needs.
We will also decide together what kind of class, duration and frequency suits best your needs, level and availability.
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 love to learn new things so don't hesitate to tell me everything about your very own interests :)
Bonjour! My name is Lena, I am a native French speaker from Brittany in France. I qualified as a Modern Foreign Language teacher in the UK and taught in Wales and in several international schools in Mexico, Spain and Kenya.
Whether you need help with your homework, practice for your exams or just wish to start learning the language, I would be delighted to help you!
Exams taught before: (I)GCSE, A Levels, International Baccalaureate, Junior and Leaving certificates, DELF, TCF.
I like to make my lessons as practical and as fun as possible, and when required, challenging. I have extensive experience in teaching across all learning abilities. Lessons will be focusing on speaking and listening skills in order to develop confidence. I will use a range of different resources including news articles, books, videos, songs and interactive activities.

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. ’Cause 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 the 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-centred lessons. Unless you want to torture yourself.
My approach is student-centred, 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!
Hello and bonjour. My name is Emil and I am a French native from Paris.
I specialize in conversation lessons in French but can also offer them in the English language.
My experience as a language teacher goes back to 2015/2016 when I was teaching French and English in a language school but also in offices and at my home. I am passionate about teaching, sharing and spreading knowledge with others.
My lessons are friendly, professional and with a touch of humour where mistakes are not an issue as they are a part of learning any language. I am open minded and curious to hear about your interests and passions as that will make the lesson even more fun and enjoyable for both of us. Otherwise I have some relevant topics we can discuss.
I am very flexible so any suggestions you may have are welcome and remember I am here to help so don't be shy to ask any questions you may have anytime during the lesson. I love my language and I hope with our lessons you will love it too.
I look forward to hear what you have to say. Talk to you soon ! À bientôt !
Hello, how are you? comment ça va?
Let's refresh your French knowledge!
My name is Geoffrey, I'm 25 and I'm a native French speaker.
I studied Philosophy and letters at uni. I also studied Germanic languages such as English or Dutch for more than eight years and I now live in the UK. I'm currently working in aviation where I'm constantly in touch with other cultures. I've also been tutoring for some time now and I saw my student's level increasing really quickly in a short portion of time.
I'll be glad to help everyone on every level of the language. Especially those of you who are still learning, studying the language, or just looking for a little bit more confidence at work.
What I would like to aim for is to help you improve your French to the best that I can, break the language barrier, and achieve your goals. I invite you to watch my video to learn more about how I would help you to do so. Come and book your first lesson with me! I can't wait to get in touch with you!
See you soon! À bientôt! 😊
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?
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!

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. Many, but not all, tutors offer trials for free. If they don't offer this, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost. You can also take a trial session with another tutor if you have any issues with your first trial.
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.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can progress quickly. Each lesson is 55 minutes long and is taught via Skype or Zoom, allowing you to communicate with 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 beauty of taking classes online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some French tutors have limited availability due to teaching a lot 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 anywhere from $7 to $30 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, French tutors typically charge between $10 and $25 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.
