Learn a language, live a new life
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 a 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!

Whatever your motivation is for learning French, there is a tutor out there to help you achieve your language goals.
Perhaps you want to pick up where you left off with high school or university French lessons. Maybe you took a trip through the south of France and got inspired by the culture and the language. Both of these are fantastic sources of inspiration that you can use to learn French! The ideal tutor, before you commit your hard-earned dollars, will be able to speak French completely fluently and will have experience teaching students successfully in the past.
A great tutor will be able to give you real-time feedback on your language use, what errors you are commonly making, and what exercises you can do to improve in these areas.
Online French classes are an option too, modern communications technologies such as Zoom work very well to converse with someone and complete classes from different geographical locations. In saying this, don't discount the value of face-to-face tutoring. The connection you will be able to make with your tutor as they guide you through the intricacies of grammar and correct pronunciation. These will be the greatest value French classes you can find.

What are French Lessons like?
Lessons vary from tutor to tutor, of course. 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 French lessons.
Others believe that a solid foundation of vocabulary and grammar is crucial before the conversation is attempted. These French lessons will consist more of exercises and vocabulary memorisation. Almost all French tutors 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.
Are French Lessons Free?
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 free. 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 vocabularies 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.
French Language and Culture
As I mentioned earlier, French classes open up the world of the French language and culture to the learner. First, 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 entirely French conversation, regardless of your level.
French Classes With Other Students
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 who offer an online video lesson for the beginning French learner. These teachers are usually French people who love to help French learners more about their culture. You could also receive free lessons by offering to exchange your English skills for the opportunity to practice French.
