I am an American who has been taking French lessons from Ainna once per week for nearly two years. I didn’t know any French at all until I met my now girlfriend who was born and raised in France. I decided to take up lessons to learn how to speak with her family and I’ve made huge strides in the past 2 years. I now have a great framework of the language and can understand and speak in basic conversations. Ainna’s teaching method is very effective – she combines formal grammar and vocabulary training that has given me the ability to both write and speak properly. In addition, the lessons are very heavily focused on accent training. I have been told by French only speakers in France that I have a very good accent and that can be attributed to Ainna’s teaching – she has the unique ability to teach me how to hear, identify and create the sounds that it takes to speak French correctly. Words that I found nearly impossible to say 2 years ago now come out easily. That’s the result of Ainna’s step-by-step accent training and insistence on repetition until its right. She makes the lessons fun and she is extremely encouraging. It’s been very exciting to get a little bit better every week. I plan to continue with Ainna’s services indefinitely.

Beatrice was great. I contacted her regarding french lessons and she exceeded my expectations. The lesson was extremely helpful right from the start. We sat down and outlined the areas I wanted to work on and where I needed improvement on. I relayed to Beatrice that I wanted to further my conversational skills due to my frequent traveling to France. She challenged me to conduct the rest of our lesson in french which i really appreciated. We then eased into pronunciations and sentence phrasing. Beatrice is extremely nice and helpful when I was stuck on a particular issue. The whole lesson was uniquely structured around my needs and skill level and explained in a way I could understand. I have tried many french teachers before but none were as helpful and as nice as Beatrice. Highly recommended!

I love to learn new languages. So I decided to take French as my second language for my school, and quickly realized that I needed help. After going through 3 tutors, I found Miss. Raguthu. When I met her, she was an absolute delight. She sat down with me, explained and answered each and every question I had. She is knowledgeable and has a lot of patience. I was able to pick up my French class grades, from a 65 to a 98. My parents and my Teacher were extremely happy with my progress. I would highly recommend Miss. Meena to any one of my friends and family members. If you want to improve your grade or want to have a high grade, I would definitely choose Miss. Meena.

Romina is very professional, patient, and effective. She is thorough and creative in explaining difficult concepts and is able to make the content interesting and tangible. As a native speaker she has an extreme knowledge of the Spanish language and a proficient command of its grammar and vocabulary. She listens to your needs and tailors the session to meet your goals. Romina arrives prepared and takes control of the lesson while ensuring a positive and productive experience. She's patient and has great sense of humor. She's truly a phenomenal teacher!

    Marccia has been a phenomenal French instructor. Not only has she adapted the class to fit my specific learning style and language interests but the passion and energy she brings to each and every session has kept me more motivated and enthusiatic about French than I could have ever been on my own. Marccia has helped to provide me with the most solid and broad base of French possible in a short amount of time. Her passion and energy, along with her creativity and genuine desire for her students to learn have made Marccia one of the best and most versital langauge teachers I have ever worked with.

    Monique has been working with my language program since February 2018! She had great reviews prior to working with me and I can’t say anything negative about her. She’s very professional and creative. She not missed any of our classes! Couldn’t ask for a better French instructor

    Jackie is a wonderful French teacher. She has been teaching my 7yr old son for over a year now and he has made incredible progress and continues to do so. She is highly dedicated and has a wonderful personality making each class fun and interesting for my son. I have had to change his class time several times due to other activities and she has always been accommodating and understanding. At the end of each class, she goes over everything with myself or my husband to explain what was covered that day. My son has become a confident french speaker now, something he was shy and hesitant to try before. I would very highly recommend Jackie for french lessons.

    I found Robyn to be a pleasure to work with. She's clearly knowledgeable about French language and culture and was able to help me prepare for my trip to Paris. I am looking forward to working with her more to polish my French pronunciation and language skills even after my trip.

    Isabel has taught both of my girls Spanish and French since they were toddlers (over 10 years!). She still teaches them and they understand everything in both languages and have fantastic accents. She is perfectly bilingual in both languages due to her Spanish family and upbringing in Paris. She is unfailingly cheerful, loving, energetic, and positive. We love her so much that she is like a part of our family. My kids talk about wanting to live in Europe and they always get an easy A+ in language class in tough private schools. She is amazing.

    About

    Bonjour! I'm a French man living in NYC and I help people of all ages learning and perfecting their French. Whether you want to learn from scratch, prepare a test or perfect your prononciation, I can help you reach your goals efficiently thanks to my unique approach. I am fluent in three languages and I'm learning a forth one, which helps me providing you with the best angle to learn a language. I like to teach "real-life" French, the language that is actually spoken in France nowadays, rather than the one taught in outdated books, no matter how formal/informal, you'll learn everything you need to become fluent. I have taught French for more than a decade, mostly to American grad student in France, then in the U.S. to different students in a private school. I have a literature high school degree and 2 bachelors in music (I'm a professional musician). Don't hesitate to contact me for more information, I would love to get to know you and help you reach your goals with a little touch of "je ne sais quoi". A bientôt! I love to see how my classes changed some of my students' life. Over the years I helped people pass exams, write a resume and get their dream job, move to another country and even communicate with their spouse and children. Learning a language is more than just an assignment for school or for work, it is life changing. I love to be part of this change for my students.

    About

    Fluent City classes are geared towards learning, but we also make sure that the process is super fun. Our energetic and approachable teachers create a relaxed environment for you to take on the challenge of learning a language alongside like-minded people. There is a huge difference between knowing how to speak a language and knowing how to teach it, and we pride ourselves on hiring teachers who are ridiculously good at what they do: explaining how the language works and getting you to speak it immediately. Our beginner classes are usually taught by non-native speakers…on purpose! They are often Americans who learned the language themselves as adults. Our teachers understand, firsthand, everything that goes into learning a language because they were once students of the language themselves, which informs the very way they explain how it works to you. Native speakers or teachers with native-level fluency usually teach our higher-level classes. We love seeing our students flourish linguistically while having fun, making friends, and meeting new people!
