If you're interested in working to improve your French language skills, Varsity Tutors can help you identify the right type of Washington DC French lessons for your language acquisition needs. Whether you've been studying the language as a student at a local high school like St. Albans School or Gonzaga College High School or you're an undergraduate student with a foreign language requirement at Georgetown University, the University of the District of Columbia, or another nearby college, learning a new language is challenging. If your goal is to become fluent, it can be even more difficult to accomplish with standard instructional methods of meeting a few hours each week. For many students, it's necessary to look to outside resources to truly work on mastering a new language.

More than 300 million people around the world speak French, it's the fifth most widely spoken language in the world. French is the second most popular language to learn, and it's the only language other than English taught in every country throughout the world. French and English are the two languages that are invaluable for people who hope to have an international career. It is also a popular language for those who simply want to travel the world and have access to cultural treasures that are created by French speakers.

Whether you want to learn French because it's fun, it's an academic requirement, or because it provides international career opportunities, Varsity Tutors can help you maximize your language learning efforts with Washington DC French lessons.

What skills can Washington DC French lessons help me learn?

Learning a new language is not the same as learning another academic subject. With other subjects, you already have a solid frame of reference and context for all of the curriculum. You are learning in a language you understand with rules that help you decipher meaning from new information sources. When you're learning a new language, such as French, you have to learn the rules of the language in order to master the language itself. No wonder people find learning a new language so challenging!

French lessons can help you work on all of the skills associated with learning a new language. These include reading, writing, memorization, pronunciation, speaking, and listening. These are completely different skills, and you must work on each of them to become fluent in a language. Fortunately, some of the skills can be learned at the same time.

Reading, writing, and memorization are three skills that go together very well. Memorization is really the first level of learning a new language. Specifically, learning the vocabulary of your new language. Then you'll need to memorize rules of grammar, punctuation, verb conjunction, tense, phonemes, morphemes, suffixes, and prefixes, just to name a few. Once you know the rules of the language, you can move on to reading and writing. French lessons can help you every step of the way.

Speaking, listening, and pronunciation is another set of skills that work together. These skills all involve moving beyond translating the language slowly and require more real-time proficiency. The best way to build these skills is by actively speaking and listening to others speak the language. This is possible with French lessons but if you need extensive help with one of these areas, working with Washington DC French tutors can be an invaluable advantage.

How can enrolling in a class for Washington DC French lessons help me learn the language?

Learning French can be intimidating, especially if you have family, academic, work, or social commitments. Fortunately, it's easy to fit French lessons into virtually any schedule.

All of our classes are delivered in a secure online environment. This means you don't have to add a lengthy commute to and from class to your time commitment. Classes are composed of individual sections and new sections begin each month, which means it's easy to get started quickly. Also, you can choose your class from a variety of different times so you can receive the additional linguistic support you need without drastically overhauling your personal schedule.

With online French lessons, you receive all of the benefits of collaboratively working with a professional instructor and peers with similar goals as you would experience in a physical classroom. Your instructor will provide direct instruction to the group and may then break the class into partners or small groups to have you work on the concepts and techniques covered during the lesson. Working with a group in this way can have a powerful impact on a student's ability to learn a language. If you need personal assistance, you can always ask questions and receive personal feedback from an instructor.

Engaging with French lessons in a class setting is ideal for students who thrive in group atmospheres and who find themselves motivated to put in the work when they know they have a support network.

How is working with a Washington DC French tutor different from taking a class?

Working independently with Washington DC French tutors is similar in that private lessons also have the ability to cover all aspects of learning French. Where the two methodologies differ is in the amount of personalized instruction that is available with private instruction. When you work directly with an instructor, you will be the only student the teacher is working with. This means you have a greater opportunity to speak, listen, and ask questions of your personal instructor. It also means that the lessons can be customized on your specific learning style and language acquisition needs.

You can work with a private tutor in a secure online environment for maximum scheduling flexibility, or you can choose to schedule a session with an instructor in person,
