French Language Conversation Lessons 

Enjoy 90 minutes of French conversation practice in an informal environment in Paris

Welcome to Paris! If you need to improve your spoken French while you are here but don't want to spend your time doing lots of written grammar exercises (why not do that at home!) then come and join the French Café Conversation group. A French language lesson in Paris with a difference. This is a 90 minute conversation class 100% in French with 2 levels meting several times a week in central Paris. 

If you sit down with a group of friends somewhere and have a chat, the conversation can go anywhere. You might talk about the news, culture, business or just gossip. You just don't know. At French Café Conversation it's almost like that. Yes, we start with a plan, we are going to talk about this topic or that but in the end it's a real life conversation and you just don't where it's going to go. But what you do know is that it will always be interesting always surprising.

Our method is based on correction. there is some grammar, we'll make note of your errors during the conversation and then explain the grammar so you'll improve each time. You'll also learn some vocabulary and French expressions. Each workshop is unique and there are no text books and no written exercises. We write the grammar, new vocabulary and French expressions on the screen. This page can be emailed to you.

A Native French Teacher. 

The group will be lead by a native French teacher. Places are limited! We want to keep the group small so everyone has a chance to speak.

Although this should be an enjoyable event we take learning French seriously so you might want to bring a pen and some paper to make notes and a dictionary.


Now, let me tell you that although we are passionate about our method it's not for everybody. Each person is different and learns in their own way, there is no "best" method. Some people prefer a more traditional approach when it comes to language learning. With a solid structure, with text books, and systematically going chapter by chapter through the book doing lots of written exercises. And this can certainly work


Of course we do believe we offer the best French lessons in Paris. However, there are some other excellent language schools of the traditional teaching method here in Paris (such as the Sorbonne or the Alliance Francaise).

Here are links to those schools. where you can learn with a method that is proven to be effective.(you may find it strange that we are recommending other language schools on this site but, as I said we want to find the best method for you and, hopefully it's with us)

French Lessons at the Alliance Francaise in Paris

The Alliance Francaise offers many different French courses at several levels. The teachers are highly experienced and qualified.

French lessons at the Sorbonne in Paris

The Sorbonne offers language and civilization courses.

A Little bit more about our Method

Do remember that there IS grammar at Café Conversation. There IS vocabulary you DO learn pronunciation and French expressions We do have an experienced native teacher but our method is based on correction where the teacher will explain and correct mistakes he or she has heard during the conversation and recommend new words and phrases to enrich your vocabulary.

Yes, it's a French conversation course but you might want to take notes.

Make the Grammar Interesting.

A lot of people hate studying grammar. I've also heard people say "grammar is not necessary". Well I must say we disagree with that. But what we do believe is important is to learn it in an interesting and appealing way and that is within the context of a conversation.

Engaging Conversations with Interesting People

If you are the type of person that likes talking that likes having interesting conversations and connecting with other people then this could be the school for you. Language is a social experience not a scientific one and we believe that the best way to learn a language is by speaking it.


You are in France you can learn all about French culture and history while your here by reading about it and living it. Although, these subjects may form part of our conversations it's not our job to tell you about France. Our goal at LetThemTalk is to help you improve your French in an enjoyable and interesting way with other like-minded people. That's all. So if you want to learn all about French civilization and history you might want to try elsewhere.

LetThemTalk has been teaching French conversation classes in Paris since 2009. Here is a small selection of some of the comments from our students.

“ After three weeks in Paris, today's was my last cafe conversation meetup until I return, hopefully sooner rather than later. I really enjoyed my meetings as they offered an opportunity to speak in a casual, relaxed setting. The groups consisted of people with varying levels of French proficiency but everyone should be able to improve their conversational skills. Once again, a big "thank you" for a wonderful experience. Also, best of luck to all the great people I met, not just in learning French, but in all their future endeavors. ”  Edwin

“ Great instructors and friendly atmosphere. The session is flexible - you feel comfortable to pose any grammar or pronunciation question you may have.  Nidge

“ great first visit, looking forward to another French language Meetup tomorrow ”  John

"The small group format with a prof/facilitator is great allowing for learning how to improve french speech in a very positive fashion. ”  Roger

“ Attended this class for the first time, it was great! ” Anu
