Individual or group lessons?

Both options are excellent. Yet, depending on your work, personality and learning style, one of them might be more suitable for you. Here are few things to consider:

Individual lessons

  • The lessons can be personalized and reflect exactly what you want or need.

  • Your lesson time can be scheduled around your life and work.

  • You can work on sensitive work-related material that you don’t want to share with a class.          

Group lessons

  • Educational material adapted to your personal goals.

  • Learning in a group can take the pressure off of you.

  • Interacting with your classmate is highly effective for your language development.

  • Sophia is an excellent teacher and a wonderful person. She likes her teaching procedure to include poems, videos and articles, in french of course, which makes the lesson amusing but also teaches you many things about the french culture as well. She is very passionate about her work and she will help you understand and love the french language!

    Alexandra Makridaki, Psychologist
  • I have tried this unique way of learning french and my progress was rapid.In just a few months i got prepared to give my exams and i succeded to get a diploma of B2-upper Intermediate level. The procedure of learning was very interesting by reading articles, watcing videos or even commenting books, so you have the ability of understanding grammar and syntax by reading or watching a complete article or video. I suggest without a doubt this way of learning!!!

Je pensais que le français était très difficile, mais tu rends les choses difficiles faciles!

  • After 2 months of French lessons with sofia I can say that these lessons are like "gym". You don't really want to go because you know that it is going to be hard, but after the class you really feel wonderful. Incredibly interesting texts, exercises, discussions, lessons.. I feel really grateful and very happy that I decided to trust her. I highly recommend it if you want to save time, money and energy by putting your forces, concentration and love into practice!
