Chicago is fortunate to have an abundance of arts and culture, as well as great French restaurants and significant expat communities. Between sessions on the Rype platform, there are plenty of opportunities for you to practice your newfound skills.

Chicago has a well-established Alliance Française which organizes various events and has occasionally hosted French luminaries such as Edith Piaf. As a hub for francophiles and immigrants, it’s the perfect place to find people to converse with.

The Windy City also happens to be a sister city to Paris. Indeed, there are many places in Chicago that feel like they could be in Paris itself. For starters, head down to the famous Art Institute and you’ll find Monet paintings that are magnifique. Try describing one to a friend with as many French words or phrases as you can summon up. Coupling Rype French classes in Chicago with cultural immersion will fast-track you to fluency.

Why Rype’s French Lessons In Chicago?


You get results fast

If you’ve set an ambitious short-term language-learning goal for yourself, Rype is the platform for you. Same-day availability and ease of scheduling enable you to rapidly progress with picking up the language. We get results because our lessons are portable and involve external accountability, unlike many apps.

You engage with tutors for 30 minutes a few times a week, and this contact builds your vocabulary and confidence. We focus not only on grammar and vocabulary but also auditory and verbal skills such as pronunciation. As a result, our lessons are 18x more effective than other methods.

By exposing students to traditional academic French as well as modern spoken language, we’ve created a robust formula for success.

Plus, half an hour slots easily fit into busy schedules. They’re long enough to cover solid ground but not so long that you can’t stay focused. In addition, we tailor lesson plans to fit you so that you can get the most out of the experience.


Outstanding teachers and exceptional value

Our tutors know the language at a native level. Through private, one-on-one interaction, you will receive holistic knowledge of the language at a much more affordable rate than conventional Chicago French lessons. We don’t have the overheads of many language schools and we pass these savings on to you.

This added value makes language lessons in Chicago attainable where they might not have otherwise been due to budgetary constraints. It also means that you can learn for longer and more deeply should you wish to do so.

We have a coterie of rigorously vetted teachers to help you up your game. We take recruitment very seriously. Our educators are the cream of the crop with relevant degrees and approximately 5 years of experience.

Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you have the option of testing out tutors to find one or more who work for your specific needs. You can have a look at tutor reviews to inform your initial selections. After you get a taste of various tutors’ teaching styles, you can pick your favorites. It’s all about different strokes for different folks.

In fact, your Chicago French tutors could be based anywhere from Marseille to Marrakech to Montreal. Rype gives you access to some of the best coaches beyond the boundaries of your own area.
