Here at Lingoda, we have a strong belief in live interaction and customized feedback from real people when it comes to learning a new language. We are an online language school, not a language learning application. We will provide you with native-speaking teachers that will guide you through your French lessons from day one, providing you with the education needed and solving the doubts you may have. We offer live and online courses with experienced teachers who have been certified to do so. While learning French with Lingoda, you will be able to interact online with your classmates and teachers, ask questions, as well as take part in conversations during the lessons.

Your progress with learning a new language depends entirely on yourself. Lingoda will be able to provide you with the best online language education, as well as a native-speaking French teacher but your progress depends on the effort and focus you put into learning the language. As is the case with learning any new skill, you will have to practice your French during your time outside of class, as well as be involved in the lesson. Most people decide to read a French book, watch a French movie or show, and even meet French-speaking friends to conversate with and practice the language. These tactics will certainly help in improving the language in a faster time. Moreover, Lingoda also offers intensive courses for students that wish to dedicate more time to the language and reach the next level sooner. Also, make sure to complete the extra material provided by Lingoda to practice your newly acquired skills after class.

We are proud to offer courses and curriculums that follow the CEFR guidelines. Therefore, you need to understand what this means. The CEFR stands for the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This internationally recognized guideline will allow you to prepare and potentially receive a certificate that officially recognizes you as a French speaker (of whichever level you may be in) for many institutions. The CEFR levels vary from an A1 level to a C2 level, ensuring the standard for all levels of French speakers. The levels start from A1 which is for true beginners and are completed at the C2 level which signifies native-level speaking.

The teachers you will be learning from at Lingoda are all native-speaking French teachers, without any exceptions. Our teachers are all highly qualified and come with years of French teaching experience. Our recruiting process is very strict since we keep our student’s best interests in mind. We always make sure to hire teachers that can fulfill our academic expectations and successfully bring you to the level you need to be at. We also train our teachers with the Lingoda method and standard, which prepares them to efficiently and effectively teach you French online.

All our courses will allow you to receive a certificate to prove your French skill level. At the end of each of our French level courses, you will get an official certificate from Lingoda which is issued following the CEFR and accepted by many institutions around the world. However, to obtain this certificate, you must have attended at least 90% of all the lessons. After the completion of the A2 French course, you will receive an official digital certificate which you can print out and show off to everyone.
