Below you can watch videos, check availability and read reviews of online French tutors to find someone who suits your needs and availability. When you open a tutor profile, you'll also see which learning needs, ages and levels the tutor is comfortable with. If you're new to LanguaTalk, when you create an account, you'll be given a token for a free, 30-minute trial session. Use this to get to know your chosen French teacher online and to decide whether you wish to take lessons with them. Please note that not all teachers offer a trial session for free - some charge 30% of their standard price for a full lesson.

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!
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?
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!
I am born and raised in France. I live in Paris. I love History, films, economics and travels.
If you like French movies, and would like to discover the French cinema, I am the one. For the students who are interested, I give a movie to watch regularly.
I have a BA in Management from SKEMA Business School and a Master degree in International and European Management from NEOMA Business School.
I used to live in the USA for a while (Miami) and also in the United Arabic Emirates where I started to teach French from A1 to C2. I have been teaching since 2006.
I am dedicated, teach by passion and I am so proud of my students. When I moved to the Middle East, I gave one to one lesson and also group lessons with people from different nationalities and languages : Dutch, German, Arabic, English, Spanish, Chinese... I understand the different struggles depending on your native language. Learning foreign languages myself, I understand even better! I teach also children and I am also also tutoring foreign children living in France who have 3 months to immerse in French classes.
I like teaching French. Confidence is very important. My method is based on 30 min exercices, grammar, conjugation and 30 min conversation based on a short video for the listenning. If you are a beginner, you will wait 3-4 lessons before doing this exercice, but don't worry, you will speak speak anyway. I hope to 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 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.
