If you feel like taking a Dallas Fort Worth French course could help you reach for your goals, Varsity Tutors provides one of the best options available. French is spoken by nearly 300 million people worldwide. It is the second-most spoken language in the business world (after English) and associated with one of the globe's preeminent cultures. It's also an official language at the United Nations, meaning that its prominence is only set to increase moving forward.

There are a myriad of reasons you might want to begin studying French. Perhaps you're a high school student who chose French as your foreign language at a local school such as Fort Worth Country Day School or The Hockaday School. Maybe you're an undergrad at a local college like the University of Texas - Dallas taking French to fulfill a general education requirement. Perhaps you're a lifelong traveler who has always wanted to see Paris, or maybe your profession could benefit from French-speaking contacts. There is really no wrong answer.

That said, many English speakers have a hard time grasping the finer points of French. English and French share a source language (Latin), so there are many similarities between them. Unfortunately, this innate familiarity can actually make it harder to understand the differences. For example, French words are frequently pronounced with sounds that don't exist in English, and written with accent marks that make familiar letters seem foreign. As such, there is nothing wrong with seeking professional help to develop a stronger understanding of French. We can enroll you in a comprehensive Dallas Fort Worth French class that suits your needs. Keep reading to find out more.

What skills can I practice in a Dallas Fort Worth French course?

One of the hardest parts about learning any language is getting enough practice to keep your skills sharp. You can listen to French easily enough with modern technology, but there is little opportunity to respond in kind. Taking a Dallas Fort Worth French class ensures that you have a regular block of time set aside to practice your French in a safe environment. Your patient instructor will understand that making mistakes is often a valuable part of the learning process, so you don't need to worry about taking risks. Your teacher can also address any questions you have in a timely fashion, allowing you to seek assistance before French starts to feel hopeless.

Your teacher can also help you improve your written communication skills. If you have ever planned for a piece by composing an outline, you know how much easier it makes organizing your thoughts. Many students never think of doing the same for their foreign language class, but it works just as well. Your teacher can also show you common phrases that make sense in a variety of contexts, making it easier to get that first word onto the page. For example, question words like "quand" and "pourquoi" almost always come up in any kind of written dialogue. Your instructor can also review your work and identify any areas that you could improve, helping you know exactly where you stand.

Enrolling in a formal French class can also make it easier to comprehend the nuances of French grammar. For example, every noun in French is considered either masculine or feminine. Direct objects on French sentences are also preceded by special pronouns that change depending on the gender of the noun in question. For instance, masculine nouns like "pere" (father) are preceded by "le," while feminine nouns like "mere" (mother) take a "la" instead. Plural nouns take "les" regardless of gender, adding an extra layer of complexity to the puzzle.

If your French studies include culture or history, you can study those topics with your instructor as well. French history is basically social studies, as you'll study topics such as a timeline of Napoleon's reign and how King Louis XIV's legacy affects contemporary France. If your rote memorization skills aren't up to snuff, you might learn a mnemonic device is make it feel a little easier.

How does a Varsity Tutors Dallas Fort Worth French course work?

Every course we provide consists of a knowledgeable teacher and students studying the same language. We vet each teacher extensively, so you can count on studying under the tutelage of a knowledgeable instructor who knows how to effectively communicate information. Each instructor is also available for private study sessions outside of normal course times if you feel like you need extra help.

Each course also takes place on an exclusive live virtual platform: an online classroom that makes you feel as if you're all sharing a classroom even if you're actually miles apart. You get all of the benefits of a physical class without the annoying commute. For instance, all you need to do to ask for help is raise your hand. We also start new courses on a monthly basis and offer two-week and four-week options to accommodate your busy schedule.

You are free to interact with your classmates as well during your study sessions. Some students might see this as an unnecessary distraction, but working with others offers several advantages over studying on your own. For example, hearing your classmates speak can expose you to additional accents and dialects for a more realistic sense of what a Francophone country actually sounds like. You can also help each other out if you get stuck, as hearing a peer's take on a concept may register better than a fluent French speaker's explanation of the same material. In fact, some research suggests that working in a group setting promotes a more extensive understanding of the concepts discussed than students can get on their own. Sharing your virtual classroom also enables you to split the cost, making expert French instruction more affordable than you might think.
