People in NYC choose to learn French and other languages as they are aware of the language diversity that exists in the world. In addition, people living in new york tend to travel more abroad, particularly Europe. For those interested in learning french without leaving NYC, I’ve summarized helpful tips to choose the right french classes.
The first option and least expensive form of learning french is to simply purchase a good french textbook and consistently work through the lesson plans. This form, is also however very time consuming as you have no tutor to guide or answer your questions that will inevitable arise.
The second way to learn is to join a group class in a reputable french program. This is less expensive than private french classes, and has the advantage of having the guidance of a teacher. The drawback of group french lessons is that you must learn at the rate of the class. If you cannot keep up or if you cannot attend any given class, you will inevitably fall behind.
The third and last option is to hire a tutor. This of course the most expensive choice as tutors will charge per hour. The advantage is that you will receive individualized attention in your french learning and will also have the guidance of the french tutor. It is important that you explain to your tutor what your language goals are and make it clear what you expect from him or her.
In the end, your decision on how to learn French will largely depend on your budget and time availability. In short, self-study is the least expensive but also the most time consuming while hiring a french tutor may be the most expensive but also produce results in faster time.
