Maybe you don’t know anything more than “ooh la la” and “fromage,” or you’ve taken a decade off. Either way, you’re ready to change that!
Beginner French 1 is perfect for you if you're completely new to the language and you want to get the basics down to start speaking conversational French.
March 6, 2024. See all start dates
Includes 20 hours of live instruction led by an expert instructor and access to activities & resourcesSELECT DATE & TIME
Start here if you've never studied French before or if you've taken a decade off and need a refresher.
You'll learn the necessary foundation for fluency, such as introducing yourself, describing your likes and dislikes, and talking about your friends and hobbies.
With a small group (averaging six students per class and capped at ten), you'll have an opportunity to engage in conversational French with other language learners with realtime feedback from the instructor.
By the end of our level one course, you’ll have the foundation to conjugate verbs in the present tense and be able to hold basic conversations, order food when dining out, or go shopping in French.

Xavier is a reliable, fun, and experienced French online teacher with a business background. Co-founder of an environmental organization, Xavier shares his time between teaching online and running environmental projects.
Certain French grammar patterns have just always been lost on me, but Xavier kept coming up with new ways to explain them until I understood - I appreciate his patience so much!

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses
We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we don't hold classes on federal holidays.
Plans change - we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your group course to make any cancelations or transfers. After that, we unfortunately cannot offer any refunds.
If you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected] before your second class and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!
All of our group classes meet for a total of 20 hours of live instruction. Some courses meet 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions, while others meet 1 hour twice a week for a total of 20 sessions.
Only students 18 years or older can participate in this course. If you are looking for options for students under 18, please check out our Kids and Teens page!
As long as the group course has not been cancelled or it has spots left, there is no deadline to sign up. However, we strongly encourage you to sign up at least two weeks in advance in order to secure your spot!
