The French language is absolutely divine. The way it rolls off of the tongue and the accent that natural French speakers have is music to the ears. This sing-songy language is also known to be one that is incredibly difficult for non-native speakers to learn. Just as singing is no easy feat, and most of us cannot mimic our favorite singers well, French is hard to emulate. The accent is one thing, but the list of verbs, nouns, grammar rules, conjugations, gender rules and other aspects of this language will have your head spinning in a whirlwind. It takes years and years to learn any language, especially one like French.
You have to submerge yourself in the culture and hold conversations with individuals who speak the language. This is precisely why most students in the American school system graduate from high school and even college with only proof of graduation and rarely knowledge of a language. They never really get to hold conversations with people who actually speak French, the conversations they have are with other students in the class. This is not going to be good enough if a student is serious about actually learning French, they will need the help of someone who can sit down with them and have a conversation.
No matter if they are in a fourth-grade French class or an advanced college level class, this is the type of assistance that can help them become a fluent speaker. Private French tutoring supplied by Premier Tutoring will put you in a better spot to really learn. Going abroad is a fantastic experience, but if you do not know the basics of the language then you are ultimately wasting your time in terms of becoming fluent. One of our language tutors will be able to prepare you for this trip while also making sure that you are doing well in your class. At the end of the day, the way to pass any language class is to actually learn the language. After each and every session you will walk out feeling more confident in your abilities as a French speaker, this type of progress is almost impossible for most students in a French class.
We hear from students all of the time who take French while in school and leave class feeling frustrated. Either they felt they were cheated because the teacher was pressed for time and could not really answer any of the student’s. Or other students were misbehaving in class which negatively affected every single person in the class. This might not be fair, but it is the reality of the school system. You simply cannot control a classroom filled with dozens of students, it is impracticable and unrealistic. Students are going to do what they want, especially when they are in high school or middle school.
In college, you at least get to pick the classes that you want to take so that you are interested in. But in sixth grade through twelfth grade, your classes are chosen for you and you have to follow the strict curriculum set by the school. So students just do whatever they want in class and this can be distracting for students who actually want to learn. When you search for “French tutoring near me” it is important that you remove yourself from this toxic environment. At Premier Tutoring we only offer in-person one-on-one sessions so you know that you will not be distracted or thrown off guard while you are trying to learn.
