French is spoken by over 240 million people worldwide, in over 36 countries, and is an official language of the United Nations. In the US, French is the second most commonly spoken language in Louisiana, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire. Many students are eager to study French because of its sophistication and elegance, and the cultural and professional doors that open from speaking such an important world language makes it especially useful.
With its countless grammatical and orthographic rules and exceptions, French can be considered l'enfant terrible of the Romance languages — languages derived from Latin. It is also the language with the world's oldest regulatory organization,l’Académie Française, which standardizes every aspect of the language used by la Francophonie,the French-speaking world, so speaking it correctly is important! If you have ever been to Paris, you may know firsthand just how unforgiving Parisians can be with beginning French-speakers.
The bumpy road to French proficiency can be daunting, but with the aid of a tutor there is light at the end of the tunnel. Our tutors have an intimate understanding of what it’s like to learn French the hard way — as a learned language — and can relate to étrangers (foreigners) who wish to wrap their head around this oftentimes inscrutable tongue. Bonne Chance!
