Alice is an amazing teacher! We found her online, and wound up taking a few lessons in person with her while we were visiting Lyon. We learned a ton - lots of new vocabulary and helpful phrases, but what really helped us was using the phrases in conversation & dialogue.We still have more to learn, and plan to continue classes with Alice online when we return home, but it was a big help to get some more in-person teaching and we have already been able to use many of the phrases and vocabulary in restaurants, at markets, and other places! We'd recommend taking lessons with Alice to anyone visiting Lyon, or looking for a great teacher online.

Alice é uma ótima professora e o método é excelente para aprender francês de uma forma prática, com vocabulário do dia a dia e as inserções de gramática necessárias. Os temas abordados são aqueles que você realmente vai precisar ao visitar ou ir morar na França. O método se adapta muito bem às necessidades do aluno. Não é apenas uma professora nativa, Alice tem formação em letras e é uma ótima profissional, com método. Além disso, Alice fala português o que facilita bastante. Estou super satisfeita com as aulas.

Fizemos curso de francês em uma escola de línguas tradicional por 2 anos, mas com o nascimento de nossa filha precisávamos otimizar o tempo para continuarmos aprendendo e decidimos procurar na internet um professor de francês. Na época, não conhecíamos ninguém que fazia francês on-line e para falar a verdade, muitos nos desencorajaram. Logo neste primeiro contato ficamos impressionados com a diferença na pronúncia. Normalmente os professores de cursos presenciais não são nativos da língua e, cometíamos diversos erros. Resolvemos partir para as aulas online com a Alice Academy e, podemos dizer com certeza que foi a nossa melhor escolha para aprender francês. Além da aula ser mais individualizada, o conhecimento da Alice na língua, por ser formada em letras, nos faz aprender a razão da construção das frases. Não somos somente repetidores de palavras e frases, entendemos o por que de cada construção, o que nos faz aprimorar nosso conhecimento, tornando a aprendizagem mais fluida e completa. Além do conhecimento da língua (gramática e vocabulário), as aulas sempre trazem situações atuais da política, economia, entretenimento, gastronomia, turismo, arte... E assim, aprendemos também sobre o dia a dia e cultura do país. Somos muito satisfeitos com a nossa escolha. O curso on-line superou nossas expectativas. Nosso francês segue evoluindo e consideramos que nosso desenvolvimento na fala e escrita se deve a competência profissional, atenção para as nossas necessidades de desenvolvimento na língua e seriedade com que a Alice prepara o curso e isso, nenhum curso tradicional vai nos proporcionar.

Posso francamente recomendar os cursos da Alice Academy, especialmente, por ser aluno desde 2016. A dedicação em ensinar e sua didática são complementares ao conhecimento nativo da língua francesa, além da oportunidade de praticar a conversação e compreensão oral. Sempre indico seus cursos às pessoas que querem iniciar ou aprofundar seus estudos na língua francesa.

Morei em Lyon por 3 anos, e não falava absolutamente nada de francês, estudei por 7 meses na aliança francesa e sai de la porque eu precisava praticar meu francês de alguma forma diferente ja que na escola éramos em 20 pessoas na sala de aula. Encontrei a Alice e foi exatamente o que eu precisava ela superou todas as minhas expectativas, uma das melhores professoras que tive até hoje, ela simplesmente me fez acreditar que eu podia falar e me ensinou muita coisa legal, gírias do dia dia, conversação, leitura, exercícios gramaticais de uma maneira leve sem ser cansativa, indico ela de olhos fechados. Agradeço por ter tido ela como professora.

Frequently asked questions

Is it hard to learn French?

With me, no 😂

More seriously, if you already speak a Latin language (Italian, Portuguese, Spanish) or even English, you’ll find a lot of similarities with French.

My aim is for you to speak like the French, not like in books (with all the useless exceptions that the French don’t even know about).

If you have the motivation, a good method to follow and practice speaking French, you’ll learn French quickly and easily, I promise!

Here are the different language levels defined by the CEFR:

A1 – You are discovering French
You can understand and use familiar and everyday expressions in very simple sentences to satisfy concrete needs.

A2 – You understand simple messages
You can understand isolated sentences and expressions in relation to your immediate environment: family, work, school. You can talk about familiar topics.

B1 – You can communicate in a French-speaking environment
You can understand the main points of a message when clear, standard language is used. You can communicate in most situations encountered while traveling. You can tell about an event, an experience.

B2 – You communicate easily in French
You can understand the essential content of complex messages on concrete or abstract subjects. You communicate easily with a native speaker and express yourself clearly and in detail on a wide variety of subjects.

C1 – You communicate with ease and spontaneity
You can understand a wide variety of long and demanding texts. You communicate easily on complex subjects without searching for your words in various contexts: social, professional or academic life.

C2 – You are bilingual in French
You can effortlessly understand almost everything you read or hear. You can summarize and rephrase facts and arguments from various written and oral sources. You express yourself spontaneously and understand the nuances of the language.

If you have any doubts and want to assess your level with me, you can book a call with me.

Classes take place on the ZOOM platform and are recorded so you can watch them over and over again.

Classes are organized around practical exercises, role plays, pair work and independent practice.

Online French lessons focus on oral practice of the language with review of vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.

You have access, 24/7, to an educational platform to prepare you for the course (videos, podcasts, online exercises) and to be in permanent contact with the French language.

YES 😀 I get ALL the students talking! This is why group classes are limited to 8 people.

The live online lessons with me are entirely devoted to oral practice of the language and take place in a caring and warm atmosphere.

My goal is to allow you to communicate in French quickly, easily and with complete confidence.

If you have variable schedules due to your work or studies, I advise you to take private lessons: you will be more flexible and you will be able to cancel and postpone the lessons (cancellation must be made at least 24 hours in advance).

If you think you will only miss 1 or 2 classes, you can take the classes in a group and watch the recording of the classes when you are available.

The online course costs €360 for a total of 3 months (3 hours / week).

Payment is for the full 3 months.

No refunds are possible if the student has already taken at least one course.

Payment is made securely by SEPA bank transfer (tax-free in Europe) or PayPal (+20 €).

Even if, in everyday life, I prefer physical contact to virtual contact, I chose to give online courses because they offer many advantages to students:

  • you learn French from home, from anywhere in the world, in a familiar environment
  • you save money (transport – parking – rental of a classroom – school registration)
  • you have direct contact with a native French teacher even if you do not live in France
  • you don’t waste time before or after class
  • you can study even if you are traveling
  • you learn at your own pace, consulting the course materials whenever you want and as many times as you want
