In-person language lessons with a teacher can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private French teacher in Small Heath, online learning may be a good option for you.

With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top teachers from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a teacher are pleasantly surprised by the experience.

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’ve been a professional French teacher since 2007. I taught French in various language schools, for big companies and at university. Since 2020, I’ve been teaching exclusively online. These experiences have allowed me to be in contact with different types of students, from children to adults, from beginner to proficiency, for leisure or business purposes or to prepare for the official French certifications (I’m also a DELF examiner). Therefore, I’m used to adapt to the needs and learning objectives of my students. This means that I can choose the right teaching material so that we can practice and progress according to your own goals and interests.
Languatalk is perfect to learn a language in a very efficient, funny and motivating way. My teaching method is based on oral communication and pronunciation, which doesn’t mean that you won’t learn and practice grammar and structures which are necessary to express oneself properly. Through the material provided such as books, newspapers, videos, you will also be improving your reading and listening skills. We can also work your writing if you need or want to.
See 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.

Hello my name is teacher Sussu and I am so happy to meet you.
I am an experienced teacher with more than 17 years of experience.
I have a Master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and FLE (French as a Second Language) and I am Montessori certified.
I believe that learning a new language should be fun and exciting.
Yes, it is not always easy, but it is more like a puzzle you build piece by piece.
I always start where you are and offer new ways to use and expand what you already know.
My priority in class is to make sure my students speak and relax.
The more relaxed, the more confident you will be. The more daring, the more you will see that it is okay to make mistakes and try again.
I will always challenge you to reach higher, to add one step and then another step in your language journey. And then, you will have fun doing so.
Plus, I match my classes to your interests and goals.
So what do you think?

I promise to always be patient and kind.
I hope to see you soon.

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
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!

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.See Reviews From Students
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.

If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.
Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the teacher is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any classes you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in French as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.
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.
Lessons are conducted one-on-one, allowing you to receive personalized attention from your teacher. classes are conducted via video call, and you can use any device with a stable internet connection and a webcam to join the lesson.
Your teacher will create a customized lesson plan based on your goals, learning style, and current level. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your teacher in real-time. Your teacher may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.
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.
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.

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 Small Heath 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 Small Heath.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private French lessons in Small Heath 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.
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.
There are several options for learning French in Small Heath, 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 Small Heath 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 Small Heath.
