French Skype Lessons With Camille – Beginners and Intermediate
“Camille has a knack for explaining grammar clearly. I feel more confident, and my ability to communicate in French has increased exponentially” Burt Wolf Host/Producer of TV Shows for CNN, ABC, Discovery Channel & more
Camille is the founder of French Today.Born and raised in Paris, Camille taught French to adults for 18 years in Boston, and developed a unique teaching method along the way.
In 2009, Camille and Olivier (and their daughter Leyla) moved back to France, where they carried on private lessons over the phone, and they develop French audiobooks to teach the modern French language.
Through her teaching career, Camille has developed the ability to speak very simply, so she is able to entice even beginners into having a conversations in French.
Although she doesn’t consider herself a grammar expert, Camille has found a way to “demystify” French grammar for English speakers. She then took all the experience she gained with her students and poured it into her audiobooks.
Lately, Camille has cut back on her French Skype lessons to be able to focus on the French Today blog, social medias and book writing/recording.
So although Camille is NOT seeking new students at the moment, she still teaches a few hours per week. If you are a returning student, or a movie star (LOL), please contact Camille to see if she could fit you in.

How Do Your French Lessons by Skype Work?
First, you contact the teacher you’d like to talk to by email, agree on times and dates for your French lessons, arrange for payment, and exchange Skype contact info.
Then, on your French lesson’s day, your French teacher will call you using Skype. You’ll decide together the best study plan to achieve your French goals, and get to know each other. Your teacher may suggest French books to study with, unless you have something specific you’d like to go over.
During the Skype French lesson, we make extensive use of Instant Messaging to write the words or sentences we talk about. You hear the new vocabulary / mistake corrections but also read them as your French lesson progresses. The chat notes are then a great study guide for you.
Your French teacher may give you homework – or not. We are all extremely flexible, and adapt our teaching to our student so you can learn French, but also have fun and not feel under pressure.
