Private French lessons that make a difference
Learn French in a way that makes sense
Learning how to read and write in French can actually be fun! Our tutors do their best to instill a taste for reading and writing in their students. This can make a big difference to schooling, especially when the tutoring can begin with early learners. The support of a tutor can make the challenge of learning a new language easier. Reading and writing are fundamental skills necessary to a successful school career.
Is French immersion a good idea?
Research demonstrates that students who successfully complete a French Immersion program attain functional bilingualism while doing as well as, or better than, their unilingual peers in the content areas of curriculum, including English Language Arts.
With French Immersion, children learn another language without any detrimental effect to their English skills. It’s said that working memory, used in activities like Math, is improved, especially among those children aged five to seven. Additionally, learning a second language at an early age enhances children’s brain development, expands their cultural awareness, helps them think more flexibly and increases job opportunities later in life
Do I need a French immersion tutor?
French Immersion programs allow for non-francophone students to become bilingual in English and French. Some Immersion schools allow for late entry at Grade 6. When adapting to the program, students may need to get a French immersion tutor to catch up on a few aspects of French in which they don’t yet feel competent.
French tutor for adults
A French tutor can help you learn the language as efficiently as possible, and in a more interesting and engaging way than other methods. If you have a specific goal in mind, such as passing a language exam or speaking French fluently, then a French tutor can be a great way to accelerate your progress.
Conversational French Tutors
To improve your Conversational French, you need to become familiar with the language and build your understanding of the grammar and vocabulary. For that, there is nothing better than discussing French movies/TV series with other French speaker.
Studying for TEF
TheTest d’Évaluation du Français (TEF Canada) is used for immigration and citizenship application procedures as proof of the applicants’ linguistic knowledge of French. If you are preparing for this exam, you can count on our tutors to assist you with any French related questions you may have.
