If you're hoping to improve your French-speaking skills, Varsity Tutors can help you get started with excellent Houston French lessons. An estimated 300 million people speak French as a first or second language. It is also believed to be the second most widely studied language after English. French is an official language of the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the International Red Cross, and other international companies and agencies. There are many reasons you might want to study this beautiful language.

Perhaps you're a high school student attending an institution such as Carnegie Vanguard High School or Memorial High School. Most secondary schools require students to take one or more foreign language classes in order to graduate. French lessons can help you to build a solid French foundation and assist you in understanding the new and unfamiliar concepts of gendered nouns, accented letters, and conjugated verbs. Students at more advanced levels can also benefit from French lessons. Maybe you're currently attending the University of Houston and are having a hard time keeping up the larger workload and more difficult French skills in your courses. French lessons with a knowledgeable instructor can help you feel more confident in your abilities.

Being able to speak French could open up international career opportunities for professionals hoping to advance their careers as well. Maybe companies are looking for applicants who can speak more than one language. Being fluent in French can help open up opportunities to work in one of the over fifty countries that consider French their first or second language.

If you're planning to travel to any of these countries for fun, knowing even a little bit of French can be helpful. You'll be able to better navigate the unfamiliar areas you're visiting and have the ability to speak to the people around you. This can also give you a better opportunity to take in the culture of the country you're visiting.

No matter which reason you want to learn French, Varsity Tutors is here to support you in improving your language acquisition skills with top-notch Houston French lessons.

What skills or topics can be covered in Houston French lessons to help me better learn the language?

Learning a new language requires you to work on six basic skills: speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing, memorization, and listening. Speaking is different from pronunciation. Speaking is the mental act of putting your thoughts into speech, which you should try to do without having to translate in your head. Pronunciation is the physical act of making the sounds and involves training the muscles in your mouth to be able to make new sounds. Listening is your ability to hear and understand the language. Reading is your ability to understand written French and writing is the ability for you to work on proper spelling and grammar. Memorization is important for remembering vocabulary and sentence structure rules. Working on all six of these skills will help you to become more fluent and sound more natural when speaking French. French lessons can assist you in practicing any or all of these skills.

What are the benefits of taking an online class for my Houston French lessons?

When you sign up for one of our online French classes, you'll be able to participate in live class sessions. During your sessions, you'll be able to view, hear, and speak to your instructor as if you are in the same classroom using our online learning platform. You'll also be able to work on group activities and engage in various discussions as you learn the skills needed to do well in French. When learning new vocabulary, you can assist peers and yourself through conversation and roleplay scenarios. These types of collaborations have been shown to help students learn concepts more clearly and fully. If you are ever struggling with a specific skill or concept, you can request an appointment with the instructor to ask questions and get help figuring out how to improve.

How is working with a private Houston French tutor different than enrolling in a class?

When you sign up to work with a Houston French tutor, you are able to receive personalized instruction from a teacher who has the time to get to know you and your specific needs. Customized lessons can be created to focus on your areas of weakness and skip over the areas you've already mastered. You also have the luxury of choosing your own pace, which isn't possible in a classroom with a large number of students. When your instructor has discovered which method of teaching your prefer, he or she can make sure to take that information into account for lesson planning. For example, if you're a visual learner, your instructor can find French videos for you to watch to help you learn in the manner which makes the most sense to you. If you're a kinesthetic learner, he or she can set up hands-on experiences. You can choose to meet with your instructor either online or in person. If you choose to take advantage of the online option, you'll be able to participate in face-to-face study sessions with your instructor using our Live Learning Platform. If you meet in person, you can elect to meet at the time and location of your choice.
