Improve your French skills with a private instructor when it's convenient for you!
Private lessons are a great way to get individualized instruction at your pace. With private lessons, you get to pick what you cover with your instructor. You can study with a book, or focus on conversation skills or work with video and audio material. We can also specify a theme to your lessons. In the past, students have registered for private lessons before moving to a French-speaking country for work or school, pursuing culinary studies in Paris and working as doctors throughout Africa. Let us help prepare you for your next adventure in French!
All of our teachers are native speakers and come from different parts of the world. You may learn a little more about them by reading their biographies. Our instructors have various schedules. The more options you give us in terms of availability, the more efficient we will be in finding an instructor for you.

Classes can take place at the French Cultural Center located at 53 Marlborough Street, in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood or at your home. Offsite lessons are charged at $60 per hour with an extra $0.54/mile + $10 fee per lesson. The mileage calculates the round-trip distance between your address and the French Cultural Center.
For all of our classes, group or private, a placement test is required. This test helps us to have a better idea of your level and give our teachers the information necessary to prepare for your first class together. Therefore, if you have not done so, please complete our online written evaluation. It should take between 15 to 20 minutes. Your instructor will complete the oral evaluation during your first private lesson.
