There is a Czech proverb, which states that “you live a new life for every new language you speak. If you know only one language, you live only once.” Why 'live just once' when you could experience life from an entirely different perspective by taking French classes?
Language learning opens up a world of opportunities to meet new and interesting people, gain access to new jobs (and even new careers), travel and learn about history and culture as well as much more. French lessons could be your ticket to a lifelong journey of learning and discovery.
In martial arts, they say that “a black belt is a white belt that never quit.” The same could be said about languages. Of course, there are going to be lots of vocabulary and grammar lessons needed before you reach conversational fluency in French, but everyone has to start somewhere! And truth be told, the process does get a lot more fun once you get started.
Intermediate French classes often involve long periods of French speaking with a native speaker, which can be both fun and rewarding. Ask your French tutor which activities you find motivating and you will be speaking French in no time!
Maybe you took French lessons in high school, maybe you were so inspired by a recent trip to Paris that you want to explore France more deeply. Whatever the case, learning to speak French will be made easier and quicker by hiring a French tutor to help you. Your tutor should speak fluent French and have experience teaching French as a foreign language. If your objective is to learn to speak French, a French tutor will be able to give you real-time feedback on what your strengths and weaknesses are. This is something that you can’t get with simple language learning apps or audio programs such as Rosetta Stone.
Online French classes are certainly an option but don’t underestimate the value of face-to-face tutoring. French pronunciation can be problematic for English native speakers, therefore having your tutor there in-person to guide you through the intricacies of correct pronunciation will add value to your French classes.

The French language is the pride of the entire French culture. French lessons comprise of grammar and vocabulary, as well as speaking practice with any one of the experienced French teachers on offer. Learning French is a great way to learn more about French culture and open up opportunities for exploring France that you never thought were possible!
Lessons vary from tutor to tutor. Some French tutors will believe that getting conversational practice is the best way to improve. With such a tutor you can expect lots of speaking practice in your French lessons. Others believe that a solid foundation of vocabulary and grammar is crucial before a conversation is attempted. These kinds of French lessons will consist of more exercises and vocabulary memorisation. An ideal French tutor will combine these two philosophies to offer dynamic and engaging classes, where each new language concept is followed by language skills practice, where the new learning can be integrated into your lexicon.
If you want face-to-face or online tutoring from an experienced French teacher, you will have to pay. However, many Superprof tutors offer their first class for nothing. That means you could have a free French lesson with a native French speaker and then decide if you want to commit to more classes.
French courses work best if you commit to one teacher over time, who will gradually guide you through basic French vocabulary such as ‘Bonjour’ and the French alphabet, and then onto how to speak properly. If you have a busy schedule perhaps you could arrange a ‘coffee break French’ course during your workweek. Or, if you live in a remote area you could practice spoken French by Skype with an online French course.
As I mentioned earlier, French classes open up the world of French language and culture to the learner. Take French for beginners to get you started, then take a deep dive into language exchange clubs, French language meetups organised online, French Film Festivals and local celebrations of French culture and art. Once you become proficient, you can take advanced French classes where you will begin to start sounding like a French native! For English speakers, private lessons are the best way to arrive at this point, because you will have the experience of ‘French immersion’ with your teacher, where you will be forced to have an entirely French conversation, regardless of your level.
It is a fantastic idea to join French language courses with other students to learn from. However, even with such classes, you could still benefit from having a one-to-one tutor to give you attention specific to your level of French and your ability to speak French. Some websites offer extremely cheap language tutors via online video lesson for the beginning French learner. These teachers are usually French people who love to help French learners learn about their culture. You could also receive free lessons by offering to exchange your English skills for the opportunity to practice French.
The best time to start learning your dream language was 10 years ago. But, the second-best time is right now! Once you begin your learning journey and find a French tutor who can guide you and motivate you when necessary, your French will start to improve rapidly! The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, so what are you waiting for?
