Varsity Tutors can help you find professional French lessons whether you are just starting to study the language at a local high school such as Ardrey Kell High School or Charlotte Country Day School, brushing up on your skills for a gen ed requirement at a local institution like the University of North Carolina at Charlotte or Davidson College, or looking for something unique to put on your resume. After English, French is the second most spoken language in international business. It is also a recognized language at the United Nations and spoken by 300,000,000 people from North America to Africa. France also plays a key role in European history, inspiring some history buffs to study the language in order to get closer to one of the world's richest cultures.

While there are many reasons to study French, learning a new language can be tricky. English and French have many points of commonality, including the Roman alphabet and cognates, or words that sound the same in both languages. For example, an English-speaker probably doesn't need to try very hard to figure out what "le hamburger" means. However, the differences can be difficult to wrap your head around. For instance, le hamburger is preceded by a "le" because it is a masculine noun, a concept that does not exist in English. There are also a variety of accent marks in French that force native-English speakers to learn pronunciations that they haven't looked at before.

Thankfully, you don't have to try to learn a new language completely on your own. We can enroll you in an online French class where you can study under the tutelage of a knowledgeable teacher. If you would prefer to study in a one-on-one learning environment, we can help you find a private Charlotte French tutor as well. Either way, you'll be building a more complete understanding of one of the world's most-spoken languages before you know it.

What skills can Charlotte French lessons help me work on?

When it comes to learning a foreign language, immersion is often one of the most effective ways to learn how to communicate in French. Sadly, students working on their own often lack practice partners to converse with, making it much harder to get the practice you need. Working with Charlotte French tutors ensures that you have set time to practice speaking and listening to French, making it easier to improve your skills. If you are a novice, your instructor can conduct sessions using English, introducing more French as your abilities allow. If you're an advanced French speaker, your teacher may conduct entire sessions in French to force you to get more comfortable with the language.

Students can also review their French written communication skills with their instructor. If you have a hard time effectively expressing yourself in writing, sketching a quick outline in an effective way to organize your thoughts in any language. Your educator may also teach you set phrases with multiple applications, such as "je voudrais" (I would like). Many students find that writing starts to feel a lot less intimidating once you have something on the page. Your instructor can also review your work and point out your strengths to enhance your self-confidence in French. If you have anything that you still need to work on, your unique areas of opportunity can be pointed out as well.

You might also want to look over the intricacies of French grammar. For instance, understanding which nouns take a masculine "le" and which ones need a feminine "la" is difficult for English speakers at first. If you're ever unsure, you can always try to make the noun plural. Plural nouns take "les" regardless of whether they are masculine or feminine.

Depending on why you're studying French, you may also study French culture and history in addition to the language. These concepts are best approached like a high school social studies class, meaning that rote memorization is the order of the day.

How do the two different types of Charlotte French lessons work?

If you opt for a French course, you'll attend regular course sessions online with a knowledgeable teacher and a handful of other students. Our live virtual platform will make you feel as if you're in the same classroom, so asking for assistance is as easy as raising your hand.

Studying with other students also allows you to hear multiple dialects and accents, mimicking what you would experience in a Francophone country. You can also explain concepts to one another to reinforce everyone's understanding of the language. Sharing a classroom also allows you to split the cost, making Charlotte French lessons more affordable than you might think.

We also try to make it as convenient as possible to enroll in our courses. We launch new courses every month, so you never need to wait too long before you can get started. Two and four-week courses are also available to make it easier to find something that works for you.

If you would prefer to work with a private instructor, we can connect you with somebody ready to meet you online or in person. A private tutor can design study sessions around your unique needs. If you're a visual learner, you might study a chart explaining how to conjugate an irregular verb. If you're an auditory student, you can listen to French videos on YouTube to learn how native speakers use a verb in everyday conversation. Working with a private instructor also allows you to proceed at your own pace, ensuring that you find sessions engaging but not overwhelming.

Our proprietary Live Learning Platform also allows students to study online. Video chat functionality and a virtual whiteboard help to ensure that your digital study sessions are just as effective as meeting in person. If you're feeling old-fashioned, we can also set you up with an instructor who can meet you at your home, school, or anywhere else that makes sense for you.
