Private French classes

Learn French at your own pace!

If you need tailor-made courses suited to your availability and goals, we can arrange private French classes (one on one) or semi-private lessons (2 students) with one of our qualified teachers. It will allow you to learn efficiently at your own pace.

What you need to know

We can arrange private or semi-private French classes for adults, teenagers and children of all levels. We offer online classes also.

Please contact the School Director to check if a teacher can be available at your preferred time.

At this time lessons are only online due to the pandemic.

Otherwise, lessons can take place at our Centers in Los Gatos, in Menlo Park, in your home at your convenience, subject to teachers’ and classroom availabilities.

Customized to target your goals

  • French grammar 
  • Tutoring for elementary, middle and high school students
  • French learning and conversing for adults,
  • French for travelers planning to visit a French speaking country
  • And any other thing you wish to learn in French!

We encourage you to take a trial class by purchasing a 1-hour Introductory Class ($50).

Note that we require up to 14 working days to provide you with a teacher and schedule your first private lesson.

As a courtesy to our teachers, a twenty-four hour notice must be given if a lesson is to be missed and rescheduled or the fee will be forfeit. For more information, please refer to our Terms & Conditions.


Lessons are sold per non-refundable six-hour package. A package is required to be paid in full before booking a lesson. All lessons of a package must be scheduled within a six-month period starting from the purchase date. If you wish to take private French lessons, please contact the School Director to check if a teacher can be available at your preferred time. Once you are assigned a teacher, please purchase your lessons package and a membership before the first class.
