What you'll do

My concept is real-life learning: why sit in a classroom when you can do the same right in the streets of Paris with a teacher? Walking down the beautiful streets, you will be able to apply right away what you are learning. You will learn how to buy a train ticket, a croissant, order at the restaurant—well, all you need to live the full experience. We will meet at Place de la concorde, at the entrance of Jardin des Tuileries, I will give you historical facts about it, then we will start learning/practicing French walking down Jardin des Tuileries, practicing greetings, directions, then we will go to a café where you will order in French and we will practice numbers and where I will give you tips on the must see places. Next door are some souvenir shops where you will ask in French, for prices, what you are looking for ( no need to buy!) We will then head to the metro station, to ask for a map and ask for information to review directions, prices. I co-host this experience with my teacher Christine (popular name in France!) sometimes. Should you prefer the same tour with a wine tasting, check out my other tour, Learn French ans sip wine and taste wine and cheese and learn French

Hello I am Christine, after spending over 20 years in different countries, teaching French as a Foreign Language, I decided to go back to France, my home country,5 years ago, to continue my teaching journey so all nationalities can come to France and discover Paris, learn French and have a memorable stay! I am a real teacher, passionate about my city and eager to show you how we live and phrases you need to learn in order to feel comfortable getting around the city

Where you'll be

We will walk around the Jardin des Tuileries to get acquainted in French—this place is very beautiful and full of history which I will tell you about. We will walk down Rivoli Street with its souvenirs shops to Hotel de Ville (City Hall) and go to Le Marais neighborhood and its small typical streets. I love these areas of Paris as they are must-see, and there are tons of shops where you can apply what you are learning.

Christine was amazing!! My mother and I had such a wonderful time. We learned so much and were able to practice and get real time experience. It was the perfect way to kick off our visit to Paris and made a big difference throughout our trip as we were able to use all we learned throughout our days in Paris. From asking for help to ordering to simple conversations. We felt it made a genuine impact. Christine was also such a wonderful and friendly person. She is a teacher and it was truly evident. Highly recommend!

This is a perfect experience to schedule for the beginning of your trip! The class is both informative and super fun. Christine is very warm, joyful and welcoming! She was also super accommodating as I had children with me on the trip and she was totally fine with me bringing them along so they could learn as well. The group had people that spoke different languages and that made the experience colorful and fun! We all got helpful handouts with useful phrases to use on the trip, and I kept them in my purse as they proved to be very handy on the trip!

It was a very good experience to learn day-to-day French with Christine. It helps when I’m shopping and ordering when the attendant doesn’t understand French. And you get to explore a couple of areas! You should try to do this at the beginning of your trip. Christine planned a very good structure and curriculum. I’ll miss Paris!

Christine has a way of making French language fun, while connecting with special historic landmarks at the heart of Paris. Would recommend giving it a try.

My phone was robbed the night before. So it took me some time to find Christine and the fellow participant with no means to communicate with her. Yet, I was immediately welcomed by Christine. She was encouraging as I practiced, answered my questions, and shared lots of insight about Paris.
