Have you always wanted to watch classic French films, like Amélie or La Haine, without dubbing or subtitles? Want to communicate with almost 70 million people living in France without the help of Google Translate? Enroll in one of our online French courses, available to students from beginner to advanced levels, and become fluent in a short time. Our native-speaking instructors will prepare lessons for you to improve your vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation while helping you to become proficient in listening, reading, writing, and speaking.


What will you learn with us?

Our instructors will get you speaking from the very first lesson, teaching you words and phrases that will introduce you to the traditions of French-speaking countries. Soon, you’ll be ready to communicate not only with people living in France, but also with the millions who use French as a first and second language worldwide. Further, French is a Romance language, meaning it will be far easier for you to understand and acquire Spanish, Italian or Portuguese!


What resources do we use?

All the materials you will use in your lessons will be selected and designed to suit your level, needs, and preferences. Do you love cinema? Our tutors can prepare fun lessons around classic or contemporary films. Are you a literature-lover and would like to learn a language through books, instead? Done! If you are already an advanced learner, you’ll acquire more complex vocabulary and grammar (ever heard of the plus-que-parfait?), while working on your pronunciation to sound as accurate and native-like as possible. Regardless of your aim when learning the language, our online courses will help you attain them!


Some benefits of our French online lessons include:

  • Full technical support available in case any issue arises.
  • Take the class from the comfort of your own home (or even your bed!)
  • Flexible schedules to suit your busy routines.
  • Possibility of recording the lesson to review it later.

You can choose to take one-to-one or two-to-one courses, or can even ask for closed group lessons (with friends, co-workers, or family members). The maximum number of people allowed per group is 8, and each online French lesson lasts one hour. 

These are completely free and will take no more than 15 minutes

The best resources to learn french

With almost 300 million speakers worldwide, French is one of the few languages spoken in five continents. In addition to being the native language of France, it is the official tongue of many other countries, like Canada, Belgium, Haiti, and Switzerland. This means that being a francophone will enable you to communicate with millions of people from all over the world, understand amazing literary works and cinema, and take advantage of countless professional opportunities, no matter where you are from.

Repetition, consistency, and motivation will help you take your French skills to the next level. So, it is important to complement your lessons with self-study. Take a look at the following resources to help you practice French in your spare time, and become fluent sooner!

Grammar Grammaire

If you are learning French as an English speaker, you will find the languages differ quite substantially. Some similarities do still exist, for example, French grammar is fairly similar to that of English (word order in both is commonly Subject-Verb-Object). But many aspects are a lot more complex, verb conjugations, and require regular practice! The following free resources are the perfect complement to your lessons with us at Listen and Learn.

Verb Conjugators

Use these verb conjugators for regular and irregular verbs alike: 

  • Conjugator Reverso
  • Lingolia
  • One of our star French teachers, Bertrand, recommends the free website Toutelaconjugaison, which allows students to practice the conjugation of all French verbs with hands-on activities, online corrections, and self-study lessons. This is the best conjugator he has come across on the Internet! Although it is entirely in French, it is intuitive to use and suitable for anyone (children and adults).

Grammar Exercises

  • BEGINNER INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED To Learn French features endless grammar resources and self-assessment tasks for you to put your skills into play. The website has activities like fill-in-the-blanks and interactive games for every level of proficiency.

Pronunciation Prononciation

French pronunciation can make speakers of other languages feel confused. There are certain sounds, such as the “R,” which English speakers are not used to producing. But don’t worry: use the following resources to practice and you will be speaking French comfortably soon! 

  • INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED Slang and colloquial terms are crucial to sounding like a native, but they can be hard to learn from a textbook. Read this great blog post and learn 12 conversational phrases to become more fluent.
  • INTERMEDIATE ADVANCED If you would like to learn more about French pronunciation through music and real-life conversation, then the Mimic Method website can help you.

Vocabulary Vocabulaire

English borrows thousands of words from French (such as coup d’etat or rendezvous). So, as an English speaker, you have a head start learning the language because many words will be familiar to you already. But what about the many words you don’t already know? Try out the resources below to expand your French vocabulary!
