French classes for adults

The curriculum for adults covers all the basics, starting with the “greetings”, the calendar, the numbers, the time, destinations and their verbs, followed by foods, body parts, clothing, transportation, sports, etc. It is also presented by theme to make the retention greater.

NaperFrench is quick to teach you how to express yourself in the present, future and past tense. It is then followed by other tenses used in the French language.

NaperFrench provide worksheets at each class and for the next session.  At the beginning of each French lesson is dedicated to go over what should be mastered so the student can keep on learning and building his knowledge working towards conversation.

 

Everything learned in class is put to use through verbal exercises, reviewed later and used again in conversation. Repetition is the key to success! Anne’s French class is your class and she make sure you speak just as much as me by asking questions, by using what you’ve learned and practicing with a native!

Each adult must embrace the learning experience as if they were still young learners unable to read but using their memory through a marriage of visuals, verbalization and repetition.

“I take pride in being a French tutor and teacher and believe that with a little bit of work and a lot of passion, you will quickly learn French and able to engage conversation!” Anne C.

How long are the classes?

Classes for adults are typically one hour but can also be customized to the student’s need and be one and a half hour long.

How often are the classes?

Classes are every week, typically once per week (twice for some students).

Do students get homework?

Absolutely! I give worksheets every week to reinforce the lesson and practice what has been learned.

Do you teach group classes?

No, I focus on private lessons (1 on 1) as most students are at a different level, this assures
better results and more opportunities to speak throughout the lesson! I sometimes start a group of two (couples/friends) together but after more than 18 years of teaching I can say that we all learn at a different pace.

Should the student buy a text book?

I have written and built my own French method with different resources so there is no need tombuy a French textbook as lessons will be given in class as well as exercises. A verb book (for conjugation) is always a good idea!

Une expérience vraiment inroyable.
This review is long overdue, but I am a past student at Naperfrench, and I received marvelous tutoring there. I studied with Anne for about a year and a half, and even in such a short time, her guidance was incredible. She was very dedicated to finding ways that helped me best learn and was very patient, but also ready to challenge me and pick at my brain in ways that benefited my growth in the language. Naperfrench is very collaborative and adjusts to the individual student’s needs and speed of progression. Although I only spent a little over a year studying with Naperfrench, I was able to use what I learned during imperative moments as a healthcare worker when dealing with patients who are native French speakers, when an interpreter was not readily available. Even though I have a very long way to go in my studies of the French language, I have gotten a great start in learning with Naperfrench and highly highly recommend this tutor to anyone who wants to learn the beautiful language.
Merci beaucoup pour tout!

Anne is absolutely wonderful and the best French teacher I’ve ever had. I have been learning français with Anne for the past 8 years, starting at the age of ten. Her teaching style makes learning a language a lot of fun, from playing games to having stimulating conversations (all in french of course), there is never a dull moment with Anne. She is always praising her students for their effort and encouraging them to find ways to use French outside of class by watching French films or listening to French music. She tailors her teaching to each students’ needs, customizing class to ensure success for every student. I can now say that, with her help, I am fluent in French, even being able to converse with native French speakers during our trip to Paris. Anne cares deeply about each of her students and I can’t thank her enough for having a significant impact in my life. Merci, Anne, pour tous!!

I have been studying French With Anne for 6 months now and I absolutely love it! She is so kind, and even when I am so frustrated with myself for getting the pronunciation wrong, she calms me down and just helps me through it. She always has something up her sleeve to throw at me that gets me to understand a little easier. When you are my age, (over 60) it sometimes takes a little longer to soak in, so I am grateful for her never-ending patience. I always look forward to my next class. Thanks Anne for making this learning experience so much fun!!

years and I have continued to return because I have so much fun with Anne! She makes French fun and interactive and gets to know each student individually. My French has progressed from knowing nothing to being able to earn a Seal of Biliteracy in French. I highly recommend!

My husband saw Anne at Naper French for three semesters of college French. He needed the French to get his Bachelor’s degree. She brought him from a D to a B+. I was totally impressed. To quote my husband, ” I could not have done it without her.” I know she tutors all levels of French, including kids as well as adults. She also tutored him during summer so he didn’t fall behind. Highly recommend if you need a French tutor.
