Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to learn French?
How fast you will learn French depends on how much time you have to practice, what languages you already speak (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Romanian can help) and, quite honestly, how good you are with languages :)
All students are in the same boat when they start a French course. Don't worry!
I don’t speak a word of French. Can I still register for the beginner course?
Yes, the beginner course is made for you!
I've taken French classes in the past, is the beginner class right for me?
