The Best Ways to Learn French in Leeds

Everything You Need to Know About Learning French in Leeds

With nearly half a million inhabitants, Leeds is a large cosmopolitan centre and each year, plenty of tourists visit Leeds. Without a doubt, Leeds is one of the best places in Yorkshire for learning French. You can join a class or do a language meetup.

Leeds is also home to several universities and language centres where you can also take French classes. Let’s have a look at how you can learn French thanks to Superprof in Leeds.

French Around the World and in Leeds

If you’ve spent any time in France, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Senegal, Quebec, or another French-speaking country, you’ve probably noticed that immersion is instrumental when it comes to learning languages.

The French Language Around the World

There are a lot of great reasons to learn French. For one, due to a large shared vocabulary, it’s easier for English speakers to learn than other languages. This is because the Normans brought their language with them when they conquered England. Norman French influenced the English language and left it with plenty of words of French or Latin origin.

The French language is spoken in France, Andorra, Seychelles, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and a number of African countries. There are 37 French-speaking countries in the world and 274 million speakers of the language. French culture is also one of the most famous in the world. French is the official language of the UN, the International Olympic Committee, NATO, the World Trade Organisation, the African Union, the European Union, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, as well as the Council of Europe.

French in Leeds

Leeds is one of the biggest cities in Yorkshire and there are people from all over the world living there. There are tonnes of different languages being spoken and tonnes of different language classes being offered.

Why Learn French in Leeds?

So why should you learn how to speak French in Leeds? To be able to speak another language, for one! That said, there are plenty of other reasons, too. You don’t necessarily need to learn French in France. To get started, you can get private French tutorials and learn about different aspects of the language and how to speak it. Learning languages takes a lot of time and effort and a private tutor can make sure that you’re using your time effectively.

Making yourself understood is a good reason to learn French. Going from an elementary level to an intermediate level will mean that you’ll have the necessary speaking and writing skills to make yourself understood. You’ll have to have a decent knowledge of French vocabulary and grammar. Fortunately, the language shares a lot of similarities to English. For one, it uses the same alphabet and a lot of the letters are pronounced in a similar way. It’s usually much easier for an English speaker to learn French than Japanese, Chinese, or Arabic, for example. Thanks to our private tutorials, you can learn about French, prepare for a trip to Quebec, Switzerland, Senegal, Belgium, Seychelles, or Luxembourg, revise for exams, get ready for an interview, learn more about French-speaking culture, etc.

There are a number of other great reasons for learning French with us: studying irregular verbs, improving your exam results, changing careers (finding work in France, becoming a translator, or starting a career in teaching, etc.). If you can speak French, it’ll help when applying for a visa in Quebec, for example.

Getting Private Tutorials in Leeds with Superprof

Improving your French speaking and writing is easier with a private tutor, why? Because they can provide tailored tuition. There are plenty of French tutors in Leeds and they charge an average of £19 per hour.

This is cheaper than other cities in the UK. In London, for example, the average cost is £23 per hour. That said, the more tutors there are, the lower the prices tend to become. A private tutor might be a qualified teacher, a French-speaking student looking to earn some extra cash, a retired teacher, a native French-speaker living in Leeds, etc. No two private tutors are the same. Make sure you consider a number of different factors before you choose your tutor:

  • The cost of the tutorials.
  • Their experience and origin (are they French or British?).
  • Their qualifications.
  • Where the classes take place. You probably don’t want to spend an hour travelling to class.
  • The level they teach: primary, secondary, university, etc.
  • The content of the class: conversation, grammar, academic support, revising for exams, etc.
  • The tutor’s personality: you need to make sure that you get along with your tutor.
  • Finally, finding lessons is easy, it’s just choosing the right tutor that may take more time.
