Is a French tutor worth it?
A French tutor will help you conquer the areas you struggle with, whether that's grammar, pronunciation, comprehension or a mixture of everything. They will also focus specifically on what you're hoping to get out of your French journey, allowing you to be as productive as possible in your learning. Students find that, with a private tutor, their confidence goes up exponentially and they make substantially more progress than they would have as a solo learner.
Want to improve your French?
We've all most likely fantasised about moving to France at least once in our idle moments. Macarons, romance and bichons frisés - what's not to love? Beyond the exquisite clichés, French is a complex and beautiful language, and becoming fluent in it is a wonderful goal to set yourself. Quite apart form the excitement and gratification of learning a foreign language, a knowledge of French will look excellent on your CV, particularly if you work at an international level.
Pursuing fluency in a language is not for the faint-hearted. It comes with many twists and turns and you will most likely encounter demotivation at several points on your journey. A French tutor will support you during any and all moments of difficulty you may come across. If you're a beginner, they will help you traverse those initial barriers that include pronunciation difficulties, conjugation confusion and wondering why French always seems to be spoke so fast! As you progress further, they will break down more challenging grammatical structures, such as the subjunctive and past historic tense, and make sure your theoretical understanding of the language is as solid as possible.
Fortunately, it's not just theory that your tutor will be helping you with. One of the most challenging parts of learning a language is speaking. This is where tutoring offers perhaps its most stand-out benefit. 1:1 tuition allows you to build your speaking confidence in a safe and supported environment. Your French tutor will both encourage and challenge you, allowing you to progress far quicker than you would in a traditional classroom environment. The thought of conversing in French might intimidate you but a hiring a tutor offers an excellent transition from a protected environment to real-world French.
