Private French lessons in Helsinki

Teacher joined in Dec, 2020

Hello ! I'm a French 25 yo student in a Contemporary Design master at Aalto. I would be very happy to help people who want to learn French. I worked as a helper for high school students when I was in France and it always went very well. I don't have any qualification in teaching so it would rather be to have informal conversations and practice everyday French. I have interests in cooking, sports, arts and design, literature... and a lot more. I'm quite talkative, which is a good thing for teaching a language. I would be happy to lead exchanges and conversations to improve your level of French!

French FAQs

What are the Benefits of Learning French with a Private Tutor?

Investing time and resources in learning French with a private French tutor is always a great decision in order to master la langue de Molière. Although there are various French lessons to choose from, mostly online, platforms often don't give learners the utmost attention they need to learn French.

Thanks to private French lessons, learners have tailored learning fit for their learning needs. Here are the top benefits of taking private French lessons.

How Many Countries Employ French as an Official Language?

One of the most widely spoken languages in the world is the French language. It originated from France, as this is where the language derived its name. Getting to know how many countries speak French can boost your will to take French lessons.

Like Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, French is a romance language. From the Gallo-Romance dialect of Northern France, French replaced Latin in 1539 to be the official language of France. This declaration was made by François I.

About 29 countries in the world employ French as their official language, coming close behind English as the second most used official language in the world. Some countries that employ French either as a first language or have a large number of residents that speak French include:

Interestingly, in the European Union, French is the only spoken language in the Union's Court of Justice and it is also one of the working languages of the United Nations.

Is French Difficult to Learn?

French isn't difficult to learn. It is regarded as a category 1 language, making it similar to English and easier to learn than categories 3 and 4 hard or extremely hard languages. Also, you don't need a formal education to learn French. You can learn French online.

For native English learners, learning French shouldn't come off as difficult as both languages share the same alphabet. However, the only significant difference is the le c cédille (ç), and accent on French vowels.

With the right learning methods and a skilled private tutor, learning French is pretty easy. Your enthusiasm to learn the French language as well as motivation can outweigh whatever difficulty you encounter while learning French. One point to note when learning a new language is understanding what makes the language difficult. Once that is out of the way, you're on the path to mastering any language of your choice.

Does TUTOROO offer Hybrid French lessons?

TUTOROO offers French lessons online and physical French classes. Depending on your preference, you can combine both modes of learning to ensure you get the best learning experience.

For instance, if you're in Sydney and would rather take physical lessons, you can learn French online on our website. Hybrid lessons offer learners flexibility especially if their schedule is demanding.

What Popular French Proficiency Tests Can I Take?

French proficiency exams evaluate how well non-native French speakers are able to communicate in French in a real-life situation. Also, French proficiency tests measure a learner's French skills in writing, listening, speaking and reading. The proficiency tests are international standardized exams and are recognised worldwide.

If you wish to study in France, Canada or any country that speaks French, it's important you undergo french proficiency tests. For instance, hiring a French tutor in Brisbane can help you prepare for French proficiency tests in Brisbane with ease if you're resident there. At the end of the tests, the diplomas are proof of your French skills and can offer a chance to study in several french-speaking universities.

Additionally, a high percentage of educational institutions in French-speaking countries require that you pass the tests for postgraduate and undergraduate programmes. For workers, the demand to be fluent in French is growing in the corporate world, especially for jobs requiring the knowledge of French. You can use your certificate to show you're competent in applying for jobs that have French speaking and writing skills as a prerequisite.

The organisation conducts the French proficiency tests in line with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Language) guidelines. French proficiency tests you can take include,

It helps to know that there are six levels of DELF AND DALF. They are,

Other french proficiency tests are,

How Soon Can I Become Fluent in French?

Becoming fluent in French not only depends on how skilled your French tutor is but also on your environment. For instance, if you stay in a place where French is the predominant language, you can grasp the language in a short period. With immersion, you can become fluent in French in about a year or less.

However, if you're learning French and you stay in a place where French isn't spoken, it may take you a longer period to become fluent in French. For instance, learners living in Melbourne may take a longer time becoming fluent in French if they aren't fully or partially immersed. Therefore, it becomes important that they get French tutors in Melbourne to speed up their fluency.

As a beginner, you can get fluent in French in a little above a year with partial French immersion. Partial French immersion involves you devoting your time to learning French with a French tutor at home.

To speed up your fluency in French using the partial immersion method, it's important that you use tools that pull you deeper into the French language. For instance, you can fill up your leisure time indulging in activities that involve French as much as you can. You can watch French movies, read French books and listen to the news in French.

How Many People in the World Speak French?

French is a popular language as about 300 million people all over the world speak French. According to the International Organisation of the Francophonie, in 2018, about 235 million people speak French daily.

The figure shows how much French has grown. As of 2005, only a little above 175 million people globally spoke French. Also, French native speakers are about 77 million globally allowing French learners to be fully or partially immersed while learning French with a French tutor.

Furthermore, the International Organisation of Francophonie estimates that by 2050, the number of French speakers will rise to 715 million with 85% of this figure coming from Africa. However, this estimate largely depends on schooling evolution and how much importance the French are given in education.

Can My TUTOROO Private Tutor Me for French Proficiency Tests like DELF and DALF?

Yes. TUTOROO private French tutors are experienced and certified with most of them being genuine native speakers. As a learner, you can work with your French tutor to arrange your sessions according to your schedule.

Having a native speaker teach you French for DELF and DALF not only ensures you pass the tests but also get high grades. Our tutors have previously taught students for french proficiency tests and are passionate about sharing their culture and knowledge with learners.

Owing to the nature of French proficiency tests, learners are tested based on writing, speaking, listening and reading, an online tutor may not cut it. Having a private French tutor allows learners to smash their goals while focusing on the four skills the tests are based on.

Can I Change My Tutor if I'm Not Satisfied With Their Competence or Style?

There are several French tutors on TUTOROO, each with a unique style and expertise. Typically, the TUTOROO team facilitates and coordinates the tutor recruitment process for learners to ensure they are paired with a tutor that matches their budget, needs and wants.

We provide students with a large database of tutors and give them the freedom to either accept or refuse our top selection. However, in the event you're not pleased with your tutors' style of teaching or competence, you can request another French tutor.

Why Should I Learn French?

Not only is French an easy language to learn, but it also makes learning other romance languages like Italian, Spanish and Portuguese easy. Also, aside from English, French is the only language that is taught globally. Here are five reasons you should learn French:
