American-Greek learning French online in Paris

Hi there. My name is Vicky Dosis, I was born and raised in a Greek family in New York City. I fell in love with a Greek man from Greece who had done his PhD in the UK, and later landed a job in the Western Suburbs of Paris. Fast forward to seven years and three kids later, I didn’t know how to put a simple sentence together in French language classes online, and when people spoke to me I had no idea what they were saying. So I figured I had to do something about it.

Learning French online – The challenges I faced

As I was on the Moms English Speaking West of Paris group, I saw an advert for BiCortex Languages Learning Services where all levels were being offered. I wrote to them and received an immediate response. I started A1 French classes in the Fall. I registered for the 12 courses, 90 minutes once a week. I had a wonderful teacher named Christine, and our group consisted of four girls.

The best way to learn French online

The BiCortex Languages platform was easy and efficient. If the teacher needed to write something, she would use the whiteboard and vice versa. I looked forward to this class every Monday morning. While sipping my coffee, I got to communicate in French and learn the French culture from the comfort of my home.

The teacher made us repeat phrases, words, and role play using dialogues. We were also given some homework to keep us on track. I had some one-on-one class with Christine where we got to review things from the classes, and I got to ask her questions I had been meaning to ask her.

After this course was completed, I was more comfortable to go shopping, to have simple conversations with other moms at the school and finally understand what people were saying to me. Things have finally started to make more sense around here.

I really enjoyed taking classes with BiCortex Languages and will recommend them to anyone looking to improve their foreign language. Its affordable, the teacher is amazing, and the whole course is well structured. I can’t wait for the course to be continued this January.
