I wanted an intensive course to quickly identify & correct the numerous errors that persisted in my French & was not disappointed ! The 3 different teachers that I had were superb & also great fun, as were the admin staff. A true "must" if you are serious about self improvement.

I found the French As You Like It site on the web. The office staff were very easy to communicate with and very helpful in arranging a personalized French program for the week I was in Paris. Every one is perfectly bi-lingual French/English. My actual lessons with Diane were excellent. Diane is an extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, skilled practitioner of teaching French. She is enthusiastic and can quickly focalize on your needs to improve your French. She is extremely attentive to everything you say and I felt that my French improved markedly as a result of the time spent with her. I can recommend her services without reservation.

My daughter didn’t like French at school and so were her reports. We decided to go to Paris to get closer to the language and the daily use. In addition, we booked two week 90 minutes morning class with a private teacher. Elsa was the perfect match for my daughter, and she really improved her skills a lot. It is very convenient, you can decide whether you would like to go to school or the teacher comes to your home/hotel. We enjoyed the service of a flying teacher.
We definitely would recommend French as you like. Next time I will book a teacher for me as well.

I had the pleasure of being taught by Catherine Schaefer for 6 months during my year time spent in France last year.

I cannot recommend her tutoring highly enough. While she would let me speak uninterrupted in response to her questions, she would always ensure that mistakes I made were both noted down in my notebook and also that I had fully understood why what I said was wrong. There is nothing worse than a teacher who fails to point out mistakes and I'm forever grateful that Catherine was always willing to do so. Under Catherine's guidance, I became increasingly confident in both oral and written French and have continued to build on the platform that she helped me reach during my time with her.

I would recommend her to any student wanting to learn french at whatever level. I have absolute confidence in her ability to help students progress with their French studies.

If you took French years ago and want an individualized program for a visit or stay in Paris and France, FAYLI can provide individualized language study tailored to your specific needs. I moved to Paris for a sabbatical and quickly realized that I was no longer a tourist and that I could not navigate daily life as a resident or long-term visitor without stronger comprehension and conversation. I enrolled at FAYLI and I have made significant progress in the daily usage of the French language through the program, which was personalized to meet my needs. The instructors are excellent and the staff is very helpful, warm and friendly. I highly recommend the individualized instruction at FAYLI.
