Do you find having a conversation in French tricky ?

Do you find it difficult to understand when a French speaker talks to you ?

Are you having trouble being understood because of your accent ?

I get it. Conversing in French can feel like you're trying to crack a coded language.

The heavy accent, the fast-paced speech, the unique phonetics—it can all be overwhelming. No matter how much effort you put into your French studies, it feels like having a basic conversation is still out of reach.

It's frustrating, isn't it?

You've spent countless hours studying, yet you still find it tricky to keep up with a French conversation, let alone understand when a French speaker talks to you. And even when you muster the courage to speak, your accent makes it hard for others to comprehend what you're saying.

Most French classes and programs heavily focus on grammar, conjugation, and vocabulary.

They teach how to read and understand written text, and how to write using the various tenses. However, they often don't teach how to decode the sounds of French, how to pronounce a letter or a combination of letters, or the simple rules that govern French pronunciation. They usually avoid teaching the rhythms and music of French.

As a result, you may not know how a word you read in French is supposed to sound. You might struggle to decode the seemingly very long words of native French speakers.

10 years ago, I started tutoring French in Melbourne, teaching to an eclectic mix of students, beginners, fluent, students, professionals... I was meeting my students face to face, at their workplace, home or in cafes. Sophie French Tutor was born. 

 

I have since transitioned to teaching exclusively online and am now working with qualified French tutors working from Europe, to bring Australia the opportunity to learn and practice French online.

I am looking forward to help you achieve your French goals!
