Accredited, personalized online French instruction live, one-to-one via video chat.

A relationship-based approach to online language instruction.

Language Immersion

Lessons immerse students in language learning, cultural exploration, and understanding of customs. It’s like going abroad without leaving your home. Positive relationships and meaningful connections drive and improve language study. Using a communicative approach, students get direct and consistent practice speaking the target language.

Flexible Scheduling

Flexible Scheduling is critical for busy students. We work with your schedule. A private instructor comes to you via video chat! Our courses run year-round, and students can start anytime. Lessons can be paused if needed, but expire 8 months after purchase for year-long courses and 5 months after purchase for semester-long courses. Cancel a lesson and reschedule with 24 hours’ notice.

Competency & Project-Based Learning Model

A Competency and project-based learning model allows students to direct their learning experience, apply the knowledge, and demonstrate their learning. Every student is different.

Private Instruction

Private coaching is the best and fastest way to learn. Student-centered teaching creates an environment where students focus on topics of their interest in French and get the most practice speaking the language.

Support Based On Individual Needs

Our students receive timely, differentiated instruction and support based on individual needs. Varied pacing, active learning, and curated resources allow students to demonstrate progress based on evidence of mastery, not seat time.

High Schools accept LanguageBird course credits.

Yes! LanguageBird is a fully accredited institution.

LanguageBird meets the highest standards of excellence and offers students and their families the peace of mind that comes with a premier private school experience. We are accredited by both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and AdvancED/Cognia. Both international accreditations are accepted at high schools globally. LanguageBird transcripts are recognized by colleges and universities worldwide.

Additionally, LanguageBird is both NCAA approved for athletes as well as University of California approved for California students seeking admission to UC/CSU campuses. College-bound, NCAA, and transferring students receive credit for courses completed with LanguageBird. For information on how to send transcripts, please see our FAQ page.

How do I get high school credit?

If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

For more on accreditation and credit, go to our FAQ page.

COURSES FOR CREDIT

Accredited high school and middle school French courses with a private instructor at your pace and convenience.

Students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the target language. Students develop their Sign Language proficiency through extensive, spontaneous interaction with a native speaker in the language.

Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real-life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, watching videos, conducting internet research, and reading authentic materials written in the target languages.

BIRD BUNDLES

Accredited high school and middle school Courses for Credit combined with Tutoring & Test Prep for students needing or wanting extra support or practice.

Through intensive instruction students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, writing skills in the target language. Each meeting alternates one Course for Credit lesson with one Tutoring lesson. This way, students have one “learning” lesson and then an additional practice/support tutoring hour for homework, extra questions, or reviewing concepts.

Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real-life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, watching videos, conducting internet research, and reading authentic materials written in the target languages.

TUTORING & TEST PREP

Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.

Instructors address any difficulties students may be having and help with homework and test preparation. Regularly scheduled lessons are recommended, rather than just for “emergency” situations. It’s best if the student consistently builds skills as well as a personal relationship with their instructor.

The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to the Global Seal of Biliteracy, AP exams, and other fluency exams.

CONVERSATIONAL LESSONS

This is live, one-to-one communicative French lessons to cover elementary and intermediate grammatical structures of the French language, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations with a native speaker.

Conversational Lessons are one-to-one communicative French lessons with a native speaker.  The lessons cover elementary, intermediate, or advanced grammatical structures of French, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations.

Our approach to education is personal and dynamic.

Innovative learning activities, students directed projects, and unique assessments engage students in the learning process. Instructors take notes during each lesson to share with students and evaluate students over time based on personal progress. We don’t believe in timed exams. We do believe in giving students the opportunity to present what they have learned in a format and environment in which they are comfortable. Final projects are presented to the instructor during the final lesson of the course along with any required written components.

Why choose an online middle school or high school language program?

Enrolling your student in a LanguageBird course offers greater freedom and flexibility for their learning than what is typically found in a traditional brick-and-mortar high school and middle school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced instructors love to work with high school and middle school students. Students meet with the same instructor building a relationship and skills. Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule to get ahead, make-up a class, or study a language not offered at their school.

An Online French Instructor Offers One-on-One Instruction

One of the leading reasons why so many high school students are unsuccessful at learning a new language and passing high school French classes is that many do better with one-on-one attention. But no school has the resources to offer this level of instruction. This is why investing in an online French tutor is so advantageous because it strays from a classroom of 25+ students with a single teacher, utilizing a single teaching method, and instead offers one-on-one instruction using a teaching style that best resonates with the individual student. Not only will they actually learn the language, they will get top grades from this level of instruction and have a great shot at getting into the college of their choice.

How an Online French Tutor Can Help High School Students Learn More and Earn School Credit

Learning a new language may come easy for some, but for others it can be very challenging. According to an April 2019 report by ‘LA School Report’, less than half of LAUSD’s graduating class is on track to graduate and are eligible for California’s public universities.

In California, public universities (UC and CSU system) require a minimum number of courses in several subject categories (A-G courses) which are recommended to qualify for admission. Taking two years of the same foreign language is one of the requirements with French being, by far, the most popular course. Students need a D grade to graduate, but to be eligible for a state university they need a C, and to be truly competitive with thousands of other students clambering for the same spot, an A is ideal. But of all university admission minimum requirements, achieving high grades in a language class proves to be the most challenging obstacle for most students. This is why it is highly advantageous to hire an online French tutor for high school students so they can not only pass their course but actually learn the language, accelerate and give them that leading competitive edge when applying to universities.

Learn why and how an online French tutor can improve the learning experience, and ensure the student will graduate with a competitive edge for getting into a top university.

An Online French Instructor Lets Students Learn on their Time.

The life of middle and high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking in other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work , there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online French instructor can be minimal, and this is why middle and high school students need an online French instructor who will teach them, on their time, whether that is at 6AM, 10PM or on weekends. When you invest in a high-quality online French tutor, you get the freedom of learning at your convenience.
