French in Chicago

Did you know that Chicago was founded by French explorers in the 17th century? From then onwards, the French influence has not stopped growing. From themed events like Bastille Day to countless professional opportunities at local French-speaking companies, you’ll find many chances to put your French skills into practice if you live in Chicago. And if you don’t speak French yet, why not take the leap and start a course with a native teacher? In this way, you’ll open yourself up to making the most out of your travels abroad and making new multicultural friends at home.

If you wish to explore the French scene in Chicago, you can attend the annual Chicago French Film Festival (which takes place on Illinois St typically in October), where hundreds of classic and contemporary French movies are screened in their original language. Or you can follow groups like French in Chicago, who organize monthly meetings to get to know each other and have a good time while practicing some French! The French Embassy also hosts annual events, such as the Festival de la Francophonie Chicago you can join for free. There, you’ll enjoy book readings, theater plays, and other activities that feature different French accents like the Belgian, the Swiss, and the Canadian ones, for example.

Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in French history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of French, this is the choice for you.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business French

French lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn French to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in French, as well as survival French should a short stay in the country be needed.
