Bonjour everyone !
My name is Oana Maria and I am a professional language teacher and a Linguist graduated at the University of Bordeaux , France. I am currently living in North Norway. I came here to take a second master on Sami language and culture, and recently I have been working in an alternative school with kids.
I am an eternal language learner and a nomad at heart. I love getting to know new places, living in different countries and cultures and never stop learning. I consider learning a language as buying a new pair of shoes that will lead you to a new culture, experience and life style. And definitely, open up your horizons.
I am currently developing my own methodology to teach languages through theater and arts, therefore my lessons are full of games, dialogues and dramaturgical exercices to make you feel comfortable using the language but also creative and dynamic and ready to use the language in everyday situation.
I am looking forward to meeting you and walk together the fun, exciting and sometimes challenging path of learning a new language. I am here to guide you ! Let's go !See Reviews From Students
I figured out that learning is much more efficient and enjoyable when it is grounded in reality !
This is why I make my lessons student-centered : around your specific needs, goals and centres of interest. I call my method « chameleon-like »
Whether it is for receptive skills, that is listening and reading, or productive skills, that is writing and speaking, we use mostly real-life materials, role-plays and games around situations you may or will find yourself into.
It makes it much more stimulating, efficient and useful to you ! You also learn aspects of French culture as we go along.
For advanced students and conversationalists we work around any topics of your choice to consolidate grammatical points, expand and enrich your vocabulary.
I am also a visual artist. My passions are art, travels and nature. But I am very curious to know what yours are… I teach you French and you teach me about things you like !See Reviews From Students
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 4 years now. My students are children, teenagers and adults of all ages and levels. 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!See Reviews From Students
Hello ! Welcome to my profile. Why do you want to learn French ? Maybe for travel or for your job ? My aim is to help you achieve your own gowls in this language. I adapt the class in fonction of levels and needs. For example, if you have just started French, we will see together the basics of the language, the pronunciation... Or if you need to speak French in such a situation, we will do fun exercises together... In the same way, if your level is very good and you only want to discuss and be corrected, it's possible too :) At the end of the course, i send you a document which retraces it. I can't wait to start together !
Bonjour ! Bienvenue sur mon profil. Pourquoi souhaites-tu apprendre le français ? Peut-être pour voyager ou pour ton travail ? Mon but est de t'aider à atteindre tes objectifs dans cette langue. J'adapte mes classes selon les niveaux et besoins. Par exemple, si tu viens juste de commençer à apprendre le Français, nous verrons ensemble les bases de la langue, la prononciation... Ou si tu as besoin de parler français dans une situation précise, nous ferons ensemble des exercices ludiques... De la même manière, si tu as un très bon niveau en français et que tu souhaites simplement discuter et être corrigé, c'est possible aussi :) A la fin du cours, je t'envoie un document retraçant celui-ci. J'ai hâte que l'on commence !See Reviews From Students
My name is Diane, I am from the French-speaking part of Switzerland and I am living in Greece at the moment.
I have been a French teacher for people claiming asylum in Switzerland for more than a year now, therefore I have good material for beginners wanting to start learning French. I have taught to groups of adults from A0 to B1 levels with great results! My methodology is quite flexible according to what my students prefer, though I like starting from daily-life situations (going grocery shopping, book an appointment at the doctor's, taking the train...) and elaborating on new vocabulary, grammar rules, verb tenses from that starting point. Reading some French simple texts, listening to French songs and/or playing games in French are also tools that I love using if you are interested in trying this out! I can also give homework if you want to work more on your own, and we can correct them together.
I love music and art in general, as well as reading so it would be my pleasure to introduce you to some of my favorite French-speaking artists!
In addition, I have been learning languages since a very young age and I am currently learning Greek, so I understand the challenges you might face regarding French! Be sure that my classes are a safe and benevolent environnement, designed to make you dare to speak and make mistakes; that's how you'll learn! ;)
I hope to meet you soon!

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!See Reviews From Students

I've been living abroad in another culture and a multicultural environment (Canada, Europe) for more than 10 years where I can share and nurture my passion for cultures and languages. I'm a lifelong learner and teaching has always been part of my life mission. Besides, I love to write, create clay sculptures, paint in watercolour and get into nature as much as I can.
I’m looking forward to meeting you!See Reviews From Students
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.See Reviews From Students
Native French teacher with 7 years experience online and many more on one to one classes, 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 ;-)
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
My name is Stephanie and I am a native French speaker born and raised in France. I have been teaching French online since 2015 and I have students all over the world. I really take pleasure in doing it. I have lived in Canada for over 10 years and as a self-taught language learner, I easily understand the challenges you have to go through to learn a foreign language.
I focus my lessons on speaking and all my lessons are tailored to your level and needs.
For beginners, I use small dialogues to learn the basics of conversation and through them I explain the vocabulary, grammar and conjugation.
If you need to practice your pronunciation and learn vocabulary I would propose a read-aloud lesson. I will choose a text according to your level or you can bring your own material.
For intermediate and advanced level, I can offer a French conversation lesson. During the conversation you will learn every-day expressions, enhance your fluidity and improve your listening and understanding level.
With a background in human resources, I am good at listening and giving feedback. I can provide clarity, confidence and tailored lessons to help you progress in learning French. Patient and creative I like to teach in a fun way which is one of the keys to success.
During my spare time, I love hiking, painting and studying languages.
So let's meet and have fun learning French together!
À bientôt !See Reviews From Students
The advantage of taking classes online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a teacher, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.

If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some teachers also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute classes for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute classes only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.

There are several options for learning French in Parkersburg, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group classes for adults with French teachers in Parkersburg if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one classes for adults with a private teacher, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good teacher. Learning online may make private teachers a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the teacher, but are generally cheaper than in-person classes for adults in Parkersburg.
If you prefer not to learn online with teacher, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for teacher, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better teachers at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Some teachers on LanguaTalk may offer local classes for adults, but most only provide online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many teachers do not teach French in Parkersburg as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a teacher, you should assume that it will be online unless the teacher specifically states that they offer in-person classes for adults in Parkersburg.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning French online because they think it’ll be completely 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 solid relationship with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your chosen teacher, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private French lessons in Parkersburg is between $25-$35 per hour. Online teachers do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
