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
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
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
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
I am a student oriented teacher, I listen to you needs and why do you wish to learn french, is it for communication or written purpose , perhaps your job or you have friends and family who speak french and you want to communicate with them or simply for the love of the language and culture ? Keeping in my mind your goals and needs I tailor my lessons to help you best in your journey of learning French.
I am a certified examiner for DELF A1-A2-B1.I have been teaching french for 14 years.Be it general or business french, my students quickly become comfortable and confident with the language, I have also trained many multinational companies all over the world . I use the learner-centered methods, the input of the sessions are a blend of practice and theory of the language. I use practical activities based on Communicative Language Teaching (CLT), methodology, throughout the course, I encourage my students to use their own daily situations in class and express them in french like in real life in role plays. In the communicative approach you will be able to start talking very quickly this is when we are going to work on theory which is grammar, I have many resources to make grammar easy , we will practice with examples and exercises which helps in learning new vocabulary and also learn how to use the correct grammar in a sentence.Take a trial with me so we can get to know each better and create a course fit for your needs!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’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.

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!

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.
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 beauty of taking lessons 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 tutors have limited availability as they already have a lot of students.
New to LanguaTalk? We'll give you a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost.
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!
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.

Whether you live in the city centre or the suburbs of Catania, there are many options for learning French. You could use an app or a software program if you're looking to pick up basic vocabulary and learn some grammar rules. Alternatively, you could attend group lessons with French tutors in Catania if you're keen for a social experience. Or, you could take 1-on-1 lessons with a private tutor. This isn't the cheapest way to learn a language but it's possibly the most effective, assuming you have a good tutor. Learning online rather than face-to-face may make private tutors a more affordable option. Check the tutor profiles above to see how much it's likely to cost. Prices vary a lot depending on the tutor, but will usually be cheaper than learning with a French tutor in Catania, face-to-face.
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 tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor 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.
Tutors on LanguaTalk sometimes provide lessons locally, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, most tutors are not teaching French in Catania because they're living elsewhere in the world. If you decide to book with a tutor, you should assume that they can only teach you online.
If you're really not keen on learning with a teacher via video call, LanguaTalk isn't going to be the right choice for you. You can instead search for a tutor on a local service listing website, or put up an advert in your local area. We do encourage you to give it a try learning online though - you've got nothing to lose as you can book a free trial session. Most people find the experience is as good as learning face-to-face, but with the benefit of having access to better tutors at a lower cost.
Our research suggests that the average cost for private French lessons in Catania is somewhere between $25-$35 per hour. As online tutors do not need to travel to you and they often live in countries with a lower cost of living, the hourly cost tends to be significantly lower.
