Bonjour tout le monde !
The most common question you ask when it comes to learning French is "What course should I take to learn French in Paris?"
I will try to give you some guidelines to answer it.
Actually... it all depends on your learning personality :
Group courses: you are sociable and you speak easily, you are self-disciplined and you can review your lessons alone without personalized support, you prefer classical teaching, you have time to learn French, your schedules can be adapted to class schedules.
Advantages : You will learn French like at school and you will meet new friends in a situation of learning the language and the country like you, the courses will not be very expensive.
The Alliance française is the best choice.
Private lessons: You want to learn the language with personal objectives, your schedules are not flexible, you are more comfortable in a face-to-face accompaniment, you are ready to invest more than in group lessons in order to reach your objectives more quickly.
Advantages: You learn French with a personalized support.
Many tutors offer their services online.
Obviously, I believe in my own French language school, Bespoke French Lessons Paris, which I have created to meet all the expectations of French learners, newcomers and visitors, so that they can quickly learn to speak and live in French with confidence !
