Please help with my language learning

Hello to all the wonderful forum members,

I am sorry to take up your valuable time. I have just moved to Switzerland in the Bulle area and I am desperately trying to get a French tutor without any avail. Migros French classes in Bulle are not an alternative because they already have a session in progress and cannot comment on the next batch they will be holding.

I would be so very grateful if you could please message back with any words of advice you may have. I really need to pick up French for career prospects and in general, living a full life here in Switzerland.

Thanks so much in advance.

Re: Please help with my language learning

Try these small ad websites:

www.anibis.ch
www.petitesannonces.ch

These are small ad websites for French speaking Switzerland. You can search them for people offering tutoring services; you can also place a free advert looking for a tutor.

You will of course need some basic French to navigate the site, but your spouse should be able to help you with that.

You could also put up a free advert card in your local Migros / Coop stating you are looking for a tutor.

Re: Please help with my language learning

Go to the local school (primary or middle school) and speak with the person handling the school office. Ask if there is someone offering French tutoring services (it could be someone outside of the school or it might be a teacher).

Here are two other people offering French teaching in the Bulle area from Anibis.
