CULTURAL IMMERSION

Learn French through cultural immersion. Language is not a dry set of rules, but a living organism that exists and grows through customs, beliefs, history, cuisine and literature. This is all essential to learning French and to being able to use it effectively in communication with native speakers. Understanding culture will give the right meaning to each new word you learn. Knowing why and how native speakers live and talk will increase your engagement and make your learning experience more memorable than solely learning about verb tenses, adjectives and conjugations. We'll teach you how to actively extract linguistic knowledge and learn from news, movies and other cultural content.

AUTHENTIC MATERIALS

Go further than textbooks and dictionaries! Immerse yourself in day-to-day French. Notice expressions, word and grammar choices, tones, and different accents in movies and TV shows. We create unique visual and audio materials to optimize our students' engagement, support their learning and keep our lessons fun. All our materials are high quality and have didactic purpose. We combine many different sources and use our creativity to create tailored curriculum that is built with only one objective - to optimize our approach and help you learn French.

STRUCTURED LEARNING

Our students are informed of every step in their learning journey. We believe that students' awareness of the process of learning - what is being taught, how and when - is a crucial part of their learning. Our 1-2-1 students are given a tailored monthly study plan where functional objectives are clearly presented as well as our plan on how to reach them. With RLC, you will never feel lost and uninformed.

ACADEMIC APPROACH

Learn French with understanding. Gain an in-depth knowledge of language as a system of patterns and contexts. With Romance, you will learn to understand how the language functions and gain independence. It is our expertise to assist you on your journey towards fluency and to help you learn how to learn languages successfully. Our courses are built on realistic standards for language learning, following the Common European Framework for Reference.

FAQ

How much does it cost?

1:1 Online Language Lessons are charged at $34. This is a premium service that aims to develop individuals overall knowledge and linguistic skills in a tailored and well-targeted way. We offer discounts if a bulk amount of sessions is booked. In addition, we offer special discounts for small group learning for families and couples.

Who is this for?

For everyone who wants or needs help learning their target language! We have extensive experience with people of all ages and abilities: children, teenagers, adults and mature learners. Each of these groups requires a different approach to learning and lesson delivery, all in order to draw on their strengths.

However, we have identified that our 1-2-1 lessons work best for people who are linguistically curious, dedicated to working hard, who want to achieve higher levels of accuracy, and want a more well-rounded education in French.

Can I book only one lesson?

We require a minimum of 6 sessions to be booked in order to receive 1-2-1 tutoring. Because the aim of individual learning is a tailored approach that caters to individual needs and goals, tutoring requires careful planning and a lot of tutor’s time and investment before the actual delivery of the lesson. We create a learning journey for all our students which serves as a guideline for progress over time.

Essentially, when you take on 1-2-1 lessons, you are enrolled on a course. It is for those reasons that we set these requirement.

Additionally, if you are an advanced learner and require a few lessons on a subject that you happen to be struggling with (e.g. SER vs. ESTAR), paying as you go is an option, too.

All our potential students get a 30 minutes FREE session during which we will assess your language level and we can discuss your goals.

How can I access my lessons?

We use the Zoom platform to deliver our lessons. Once you book lessons with us, you will receive a link to a Zoom video meeting. 

When can I have my lessons? What if there's a time difference?

Flexibility is part of our service, and we will try our best to cater to your needs. In case that your desired time slot has already been taken, we can try to find the next best time, however, we have a lot of clients and we work on a first-come-first-serve basis thus we cannot guarantee that you will get the preferred time slot.

Additionally, we welcome students all over the world and have lots of clients from the United States in particular.

How long does a lesson last?

We follow the standard  hour of 60 minutes for our 1-2-1 lessons.  Some of our adult learners prefer to book two hours (90 minutes) per session, however, we would advise against that for younger learners and children to avoid cognitive overload.

How often can I have lessons?

As often as you would like and depending on how fast you want to progress.

For beginners (A1-B1), we would recommend twice per week in a spaced out format (e.g. on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Fridays), or a bulk of two lessons in one session (90 minutes weekly).

We require  a minimum of one session per week because language learning demands consistency, scaffolding and progressive overload. The longer the pause between lessons, the more time we have to take to revise previous topics, leaving you unable to progress at an optimal pace.

Can I reschedule last minute?

We require a 24 hours cancellation notice in order to reschedule. We completely understand that sometimes life happens and students need to cancel last minute but at that point, the tutor’s time has already been lost, including the time spent preparing for the lesson.

What happens if I cannot attend?

If you give a 24 hours notice, we will reschedule the lesson. Otherwise, you will lose the fee.

UNDERSTANDING

Your progress is tracked and measured from session to session ensuring that your work informs tutor’s approach, and that you are continuously challenged. 

We base my teachings on showing rather than telling – all steps in your learning journey will be taken by you with logic and understanding.

Every language has a specific way of representing and seeing the world. It is our job to immerse you in the native speakers’ frame of reference. Our method of language teaching includes a lot of questioning, scaffolding, interweaving, input-output, dual coding, and cultural immersion.   

In our practice, we follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), an international standard for describing language ability and proficiency on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have mastered a language.
