Students looking for Syracuse French lessons can contact Varsity Tutors. Whether you are a student at Jamesville-Dewitt High School and are studying French in order to fulfill a general education requirement or you are an adult who is interested in mastering a second language, we can help. We can get you started with a course or private language instruction as soon as possible.

Learning a foreign language can benefit you in a number of ways. Once you master a foreign language, you can speak to people who you would not have been able to converse with before. This is especially useful if you travel a lot or do business with foreign individuals. However, even if you do not, studying a foreign language can open up your eyes to a new culture, along with all of its customs and practices.

Having a foreign language under your belt can also open up new educational and career opportunities. If you are interested in applying to universities in the Syracuse area, such as Syracuse University, your application could look much better if you have taken foreign language classes and can say that you are fluent in French. In addition, it will look good on your resume. Some jobs require the knowledge of a second language, and even for the ones that don't, job managers often value applicants who can speak a second language. Not only can the knowledge of a foreign language potentially come in handy, but it also can also show that you have a strong work ethic and are open to trying new ideas. Of course, learning French can also open up specific job opportunities to you, such as a French-to-English or English-to-French translator.

What skills can Syracuse French lessons teach me?

Studying a foreign language involves more than just memorizing words. You need to understand proper grammar. Grammar rules in the language you are studying may be entirely different from the languages you are used to. During your Syracuse French lessons, your class instructor can focus on some rules of the French language, such as direct object pronouns, indefinite adjectives and pronouns, and verbs used to express opinions. Your instructor can also focus on French culture and history, as well as how French culture and history influenced and was influenced by the language itself. This can help you gain a deeper understanding of common phrases found in French and help you understand why certain things are called what they are.

Taking a course taught by an experienced French instructor who is proficient in French is a great opportunity to finally practice what you have been learning. You will be attending this virtual class with other students who will also be interested in practicing their French. Your class instructor can set aside specific times for students to practice their French, and they may pair students with each other and assign conversational topics to talk about. They may also start group discussions where everyone can join in. Depending on your level, the instructor may even teach some or all lessons entirely in French, with no English spoken. This can help you get used to speaking in a foreign language without having to rely on the crutch of using English words when you can't think of the right French word.

Studying a language by yourself, especially if you are doing so through a textbook, has many challenges. It can be hard to grasp the correct pronunciation when all you have to go by are written words. Even if you have an audio recording to help you out, you still will not have anyone to correct you if you pronounce a word the incorrectly. Whether you take a class or get private mentoring with a Syracuse French tutor, your pronunciation could be improved.

Many students opt to study with a private French tutor instead of taking a class. This way, they can get individualized attention from their instructor who can focus on the areas in which they need improvement. A private instructor can also help you learn the idiosyncrasies of the French language. For example, there may be idioms, expressions, phrases, and slang words that are commonly spoken by native French speakers. Studying from a textbook often doesn't give you the opportunity to understand the subtle nuances of French. However, a proficient tutor can help with that.

How do the two types of Syracuse French lessons work?

Students who enroll in a French class will be able to attend classes over the internet. These classes are instructed by a professional French teacher, and you can attend these classes at your own schedule. There is a new class starting each month so you won't need to wait long to begin your French instruction. Many students enjoy joining in on the collaborative discussions that can take place during French classes. It gives them an opportunity to become better French speakers and improve their fluency in the language.

Another option is studying with a private Syracuse French tutor. We can connect you with a trained French instructor who can study with you one-on-one. Some students enjoy having one-on-one discussions with a fluent French speaker, as it gives them an insight into how it would be if they were to travel to France and speak the language with locals. You can study with your instructor over the internet through our Live Learning Platform. This will give you maximum convenience and flexibility. Alternatively, if you so desire, we can connect you with a French tutor near you who can study with you in person.
