The process is different depending on the type of course. You can find out more about running a specific course by choosing one on this page.
For group lessons, Zoom is the only option available as it is currently the most popular solution. It is also free, very easy to use and requires no download.
For individual lessons we can also use Skype, WeChat or Google Hangouts. You can let me know by leaving a note with your ID during the booking process.
Zoom does not require a download to your computer or even a subscription. Just click on the link you will receive after booking a lesson. If you have a device and a reliable internet connection, that's enough!
Online courses are actually, in my opinion, more effective. First of all, you save time because you don't have to travel to start a course. Moreover, the combination of the camera with the documents that I will give you in real time makes the process as easy as if we were in the same room. It is also much easier to store and organize the documents you receive. Even the least tech-savvy of my students are satisfied with this method!
It is quite possible to activate only my camera, or even neither! Just let me know at the start of the first lesson.
No preparation is necessary before the first individual lesson. Preparation may be necessary before a group lesson. You can check the course description for more information, or contact here.
Following your purchase, you will receive an e-mail containing a link to book your lessons. It is not necessary to book all your lessons at the same time. You can reserve them one by one up to 6 months after the date of purchase.
If you want to follow a textbook during our individual lessons, that's totally possible! Please send me a message on my contact page before booking a course with me to make sure I have the book before we start the course.
I will send you all the documents you need in real time via the chosen platform. It is also possible to work with a Google Docs so that you can always keep track of what we are doing.
Any student motivated to learn French is welcome. I teach both absolute beginners and advanced students, but most fall between these two levels!
To get an idea of your written level, you can take a free test on this site. I will also assess your level during our first lesson.
This question has no obvious answer. It depends on how fast you learn. Generally (and if you're motivated) I think you can start from scratch and be able to express an opinion, talk about what you did in the last week, and deal with everyday situations in 30 hours about.
Sure ! I also give writing lessons. I usually suggest that my students do an assignment before class so that we can correct it together during the next class. You can click here to get an overview of the courses I offer.
I accept anyone who is at least 12 years old.
Yes ! I was born and raised in Brittany, in the northwest of France. I have also spent most of my life in this region.
If some regions of France have a kind of accent, the vast majority speak the same way. It's the French you hear on TV, on the radio and even on YouTube. It's also the “accent” that I have. Some expressions may differ from one region to another (the most typical example is probably “chocolatine” versus “pain au chocolat”) but that's really marginal!
I teach because I like French and I think I'm good at it, haha! Helping people achieve their goals also fascinates me. Whether your end goal is to find a new job, immigrate to a new country, or simply learn a new language, I genuinely like to help and do my best.
The number of lessons per week is up to you! To see progress, I think an hour a week is a good start. Most of my students take one to two hours a week with me.
Each lesson must be sent at least 12 hours in advance and up to 4 weeks before the start of the lesson.
The courses have a different price depending on their duration, their content, and the number of people attending. You can consult my different services on this page.
French-lessons.net accepts most credit and debit cards, as well as PayPal.
To know my schedule, I encourage you to choose a lesson. You will then be able to access my schedule in real time over the next four weeks.
Yes ! I need to sleep around 7 hours a night, but other than that we can try to find a time slot where both of us will be available. I encourage you to contact me via this page.
I am based in Lisbon, Portugal. This place may seem like a long way from you, but my schedule could very well match yours! You can easily see this by looking at my schedule during the booking process. You can consult my different courses and book from this page.
If you request the cancellation or postponement of a lesson that takes place in more than 24 hours, you will be fully refunded, no questions asked. If the lesson takes place in less than 24 hours, I will not be able to reimburse you.
