Learning French in New York, NY comes with a bunch of ungodly challenges

Most French lovers in New York , NY are motivated learners, but they easily get discouraged by the following factors, and you probably faced the same at some point:

Private tutors in New York, NY are expensive

It takes hundreds of hours to become a fluent French speaker. Imagine having to pay a tutor $45 to $90 for each hour of private lessons.

Language immersion trips are expensive

Immersions are a very effective way to learn French, but they cost an arm and a leg and demand that you leave New York , NY to stay in France for months.

Cheap alternatives like Duolingo aren't effective

Many people start with Duolingo and other gamification-based applications only to realize they have wasted their time. Duolingo is great for vocabulary memorization, not for speaking.

Finding someone to speak with in New York, NY or online is hard

Imagine you acquire a load of vocabulary but can't even use it in a real-life conversation because you have no practice buddy.

Tutoring platforms don’t offer structured learning paths

Tutoring marketplaces like Lingoda , Preply, and iTalki match you with French tutors, but you have to decide what you want to learn — and build your learning path yourself.

Rote memorization and translation aren’t very effective

Forget about memorizing words, and translating sentences. In French, context is everything, or your memorized vocabulary is useless.

We designed Get French Classes to help you achieve fluency in weeks, all while addressing the above challenges

We've designed our entire program to be more about speaking than learning. When you choose our online French classes in New York , NY , you get 2 private French classes with your tutor and one group class per week. On top of that, each program comes with ~50 video lessons and 100+ writing and speaking assignments you can use to build daily speaking habits.

Build a daily habit of speaking French with bite-sized lessons

We figured that achieving French fluency demands consistency and time. That’s why we created our program to help you speak every day using our video lessons. Each of these videos is designed to teach you one and only one specific thing. We do this to avoid information overload and confusion.

After each lesson, you'll take speaking and writing assignments that will help your learning advisor assess whether or not you've understood the lesson. Based on this, he or she will give you advice on how to improve.

Practice with a native speaker (your tutor) twice a week

Our online French classes take place twice a week and focus on practice. Each course has a theme (at the bakery, in the supermarket, at work, etc.) and puts you in a real-life situation.

This prepares you to engage in conversations with native speakers without ever having to say "Oui Oui, baguette" because you don't know what they're saying. What's more, you get live feedback from your tutor when you make mistakes and discover the real context in which expressions are used.

Fine tune your grammar and improve fluency through group classes

Most people struggle with French because they don't have practice companions. Our learners don't. That's because once a week, you have the opportunity to debate and share your views with 5 other learners from around the world, including, New York , NY .

These online group French lessons aim to help you improve your debating and conversational skills, use logic, tell stories, defend your arguments, and so on. But they're also a way to build meaningful relationships with people from all over the world.

Who can benefit the most from our online French classes in [Location]?

Whether you’re struggling to understand when French native speakers talk or to simply form sentences, Get French Classes is the right New York , NY French school for you. Join us if you fall into any of the following categories:

You're too afraid of making mistakes and being made fun of

French is a very complex language. And even as native speakers, we make a lot of mistakes. We remedy this by having you practice more with native speakers (your tutor), who can give you direct, contextual feedback. Also, you won't feel alone because you'll form pods with learners facing the same challenges as you.

You can read and even understand when people speak, but struggle a lot when it comes to speaking

This often happens when you learn French passively, by focusing more on reading or listening instead of speaking. But our active immersion method helps you change this by making you speak more on a daily basis, either with your private teacher, your learning advisor, or the other learners in your group.

You missed out on a lot of opportunities because you couldn't speak French fluently

It happens, and we're here to help you avoid that in the future. Whether you're learning French for academic, professional, or even personal reasons, we're here to help you improve your French skills and make sure you're well equipped to achieve your goal, whatever it may be.

You're on a budget and can't afford to pay French tutors $50+ per hour

It's expensive to learn French by paying tutors per hour. Some companies even go so far as to charge you more than $50 per hour. At that rate, to get to level B2, you'll have spent more than $10k. With us, you'll have ~20 hours of live lessons per month plus ~7 hours of video lessons for just ~$10 per day.

You're struggling to find people (beginners and advanced French speakers) you can practice with

With our programs, you'll have more people to practice with than you could ever dream of. Your advisor will be there to give you feedback. Twice a week, your private French teacher is also there to help you speak and give you feedback. And once a week, you can debate and share your views with other learners like yourself.

You're a busy professional and don't have time to dedicate to proper French learning

You've got a busy schedule, and we know you don't have time after work or study to go to a classroom to learn French. That's why we have bite-size lessons, and our classes are online and suited to your availability, so you can take them in the comfort of your own home or office, after work.

My tutor, Laurie, has been really helpful across my program. She was very patient and understanding. Since, I'm learning French for professional purposes, she also tries her best to adapt her teaching materials to my context, and that is very much helpful.

Why choose Get French Classes as your preferred French language school in [Location]?

There are lots of reasons why people from New York , NY join our courses to improve their French language skills, and many of them can be found in the testimonials sections of our website. But if you want a condensed version, here are a few reasons.

Lifetime access to French learning resources

When you purchase one of our French courses, you get lifetime access to all the materials. Each course includes ~50 video lessons and ~100 assignments that will always be yours.

You'll also have access to online course recordings and class material that you can always refer to for learning purposes. And these can be accessed from anywhere, at any time.

Best cost-to-value ratio than any other French language school in [Location]

It will be hard to find a French language school in the New York , NY region that can compete with Get French Classes in terms of value.

We're the only French language school where you get ~20 hours of online French classes, ~7 hours of pre-recorded lessons, a learning consultant, and practice buddies for less than $400 a month.

Outcome-based billing and courses

When you're learning French using apps like Duolingo or even tutor marketplaces like Preply and Lingoda, it's hard to know what the outcome will be. Most of the time, it's a badge for progress, or jobs to be done, like "10 hours a month of group classes."

At Get French Classes, we have a course for each CEFR level (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2), so right off the bat, when you sign up, you know the outcome will be to have a specific level. What's more, each lesson has a learning outcome that lets you evaluate whether or not the session was worthwhile.

Programs that focus on more than speaking

It's true that speaking is important. So are writing, listening, and reading. In fact, the CEFR levels are built around 4 skills, not just speaking.

Get French Classes emphasize each of these skills almost equally. You always do both written and oral assignments. And as you progress through the CEFR levels, we begin to emphasize reading and listening.

Programs that work for all CEFR levels

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced French speaker, there's a course to help you improve at Get French Classes. In fact, to avoid a one-size-fits-all approach, we've created mini-courses to cover each CEFR level.

So, instead of creating a course for level A1, we've created courses for beginners A1 (Grand DĂ©butant), advanced A1 (DĂ©butant), beginners B1, and so on. So you only pay for your level, rather than a generic A1 French course.

Thousands of happy customers from 50+ countries

You know something's working when your customers keep referring new customers to you. And that's exactly what's happening with Get French Classes.

Our customers appreciate our experienced New York , NY -based and international tutors, our materials, and the teaching method we use. All these elements combined have helped thousands of people become fluent in French.

What I like the most about the program is that all my tutors are native speakers. They do help me not only understand the French language, but also the culture and the nuances of some words and expressions. And mostly, the live sessions are engaging and fun.

Have some questions about our French classes in New York, NY? Check our FAQs

Here are some of the questions we get asked most of the time:

The average cost of French lessons and tutors is $30 per hour. If you want to hire a French tutor to help you improve your French, you can expect to spend between $15 and $150 per hour.

That's pretty expensive, to be honest. We've discovered that most people cannot afford to pay a French tutor up to $30 an hour unless their company or organization sponsors their lessons.

So we've designed our rates to fit most budgets and to be based on results rather than the number of hours spent with a tutor.

That's why we charge a flat $307 fee for each of our program.

As a busy mom and professional, learning French has been complicated for me. But since I started learning with Get French Classes, I have seen my French improve FAST. Through the lessons, I not only get to practice every day, but I also have more opportunities than before. I can practice with my advisor, private tutor, and other learners like me.
