A practical approach to French

zigzag french class

As an expatriate in Paris, you face various common daily situations - at work, in the shops, at your children's school, in your neighborhood, in the streets, in the French administration, in society, at home,... - in which you woud like or need to rapidly be able to interact with confidence in a natural and proper French.

That's why every lesson of our French courses aim at helping you to learn and practice the very vocabulary, language and social concepts that will be specifically and immediately useful in your daily life and will speed up and soften the usual adjusting process to your new living, work and social environment.

A structured and modern pedagogy

No improvised French lessons with us. Our French courses are backboned by a structured and cutting-edge pedagogy that has been successfully deployed and iterated over 9500+ hours since 2017. It lays on 3 core features:

Contextual and custom learning material, based your Parisian reality


Our learning material is selected and customised to fit with your specific language priorities and progression and so that the content learnt during each class is fully and genuinely actionable in your Parisian everyday social or business life contexts.

A strong focus on building fluency and confidence


Every session is based on a very gradual, visual and participative learning practice. This process makes it easier for you to discover new content and master it phonetically, grammatically & socially, as well as to practice it extensively so that it rapidly becomes more natural.

A tailored online learning plateform


After each session, through our dedicated online learning plateform, you will get easy & unlimited access - at least up to 1 year after the end of the training - to the content of your face-to-face class, further related exercises, quizzes & learning resources designed to help you memorize better, assimilate faster and delve further into selected topics.

Pairing you up with super skilled and passionate native tutors

Our French classes are performed by our small team of native French teachers, each of them being selected for their outstanding personality and interpersonal skills, excellent teaching skills and integrity. We will pair you up with the tutor whom we believe to be the most adapted to your learner profile.
