Learn French online: the best resources & experts: Pascale of Paris Version à la Française
For those of us not lucky enough to travel all the way to Paris to learn French, Parisian tutor Pascale will come to you.
Conducted via Skype and customised to your specific wishes, Paris Version à la Française has online classes that are a fabulous resource for those who do not have the time to attend French lessons.
Pascale is the ideal option to learn from a basic entry level and, for those of a higher level, to refine your accent and general conversation skills – all things to make communication with the French facile. She offers the depth you can only receive from one-on-one classes with a native speaker, but the flexibility that is often difficult to find in such arrangements.
After twenty years of experience teaching adults, Pascale has also just launched a brand new eLearning program, ‘On y va!’, for those just beginning to spread their French language wings. This program can be completed alongside her lessons, or entirely independently to brush up on rusty French skills.
You can even take a free trial class to find out if the course will suit you.
If the testimonials on her site are anything to go by, it seems the value in what Pascale offers is not simply linguistic. From improving French conversation skills, expanding vocabulary and helping students pass their French tests to designing a Proust-inspired visit to the Hotel Ritz for a French literature fan – it seems Pascale really does go above and beyond. If you’re looking for personalised and personable, this could be the course for you. But don’t take our word for it: read them all here.
And if you’re lucky enough to be travelling to Paris, Pascale is more than happy to act as guide-cum-language teacher while you’re there. The streets of Paris sounds like the ideal classroom,and who says you can’t combine business – or in this case, learning – avec le plaisir?Jump to:

Personally, I think I would rather learn French in France … or Morocco!!
I agree Elise – I like the sound of learning French in Paris while being shown all the gorgeous sights at the same time!
A guide-cum-teacher when visiting Paris would be great for some instant feedback on my pronunciation when I’m buying food at pâtisseries and train tickets etc. Not to mention it would be great for general immersion and a local experience! But it’s great to know I don’t have to leave my lounge room to practice my French with a native in the meantime. 😉
The best of both worlds!
On days when you’re feeling lazy and don’t want to leave the house.. or when you’re far away in wintery Melbourne you can Skype… and when you’re in Paris and ready to mingle and explore, you can!
