Follow French lessons online with a private tutor

How can you improve your fluency in the language of love? Well, there’s a myriad of options, from attending traditional French lessons in your area to using apps that browbeat you into spending five minutes a day reviewing vocabulary. Figuring out the best way to learn takes time, and it's certainly difficult to find that fine balance between convenience and effective methods. The good news is that Preply has the ideal solution.

What are the benefits of online French lessons via Preply?

Classroom settings are not always the right environment to learn French. Effectively learning French takes a teacher who is as committed as you are to achieving your goals; most classroom teachers don't have the time to offer that to every student.

  • Development of your own personal learning plan
  • Convenience of arranging sessions around your own schedule
  • Stress-free learning in your own home

  • A French teacher entirely focused on your personal learning
  • A variety of rates to suit your budget
  • One-on-one French lessons online via video calls
  • A helpful and friendly customer service team to handle your queries or concerns
  • 100% money back guarantee if you're not happy with your tutor after the first lesson
  • With 1644 private French tutors from all around the world, there's a high chance you will be able to find a tutor who also speaks your native language

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


🇫🇷 How hard is French, and how long does it take to learn?

French seems difficult due to its various verb forms, gendered nouns, and tricky pronunciation. At the same time, the vocabulary is quite easy to master because many French words come from Latin, just like in English and other European languages. On average, you'll need 750 guided hours with a private French teacher to become fluent. That equals 30 weeks of intensive study (around 7 hours a day). To speed up the process, why not start learning with private French lessons on Preply?

🎙 What is the easiest and fastest way to learn French?

The easiest and most effective approach is to practice with a private tutor. You can find an online French tutor through Preply. They manage your learning with a personalized plan and share the best language tips for real-life situations. Choose among many native French tutors and start speaking in no time! Total immersion is key when you want to learn French quickly, but this can be hard to do from your own home. With a private French tutor you will be able to dive in and get confident at speaking.

🎯 How can I learn the correct pronunciation with a real French accent?

Listen closely to a native French speaker talk, then have them listen to you and correct you. Starting out, you could read aloud as hearing yourself read builds the confidence necessary to start speaking. The main barrier learners often face is feeling embarrassed and self-conscious, so it helps to find a native French tutor with whom you don't need to apologize for making any mistakes.

🌍 How many countries speak French?

French is the official language of 29 countries, it is a regional language in three other countries and it's spoken (but not official) in 13 more countries. The more time you're willing to invest, the steaper your learning curve will be. As you study French, you will also discover that other Western Romance languages are similar, such as Italian and Portuguese.

📅 How long does it take to learn French?

On average, it takes around 23-24 weeks or 575-600 hours to learn French. The more time you invest in learning French, the sooner you will master the language. Learning with a virtual French tutor will help speed up the process. 

🧑🏻‍🤝‍🧑🏿How many people speak French?

Over 280 million people speak French all over the world. Native French speakers number around 77 million, which means there are plenty of people to share a wealth of cultural experiences with.

🎓 What are the most popular French tests?

One of the most well-known French language exams, the Test d’Évaluation de Français can help you determine your level. In case you're considering relocating to France, the TCF ANF, administered by the CIEP, is specially designed for people applying for French citizenship, either through marriage or naturalization. To get French citizenship, a CEFR B2 level is required. Your private French teacher will be able to help you get ready for whichever French test you want to take. 

🤓 Why learn French?

There are many reasons to learn French. It's a beautiful language, it's often called the language of love. It's the second most widely learned foreign language around the world after English. And it's the fifth most spoken language on earth. So learning French is a great idea if you want to have an extra advantage on the job market or want to travel around the world.
