Manhattan’s French Language Salon offers a fresh approach to mastering the art of French conversation. With longstanding expertise in teaching French to every age, we know how to engage students with thought-provoking content, language-rich visual aids, and easy examples. Classes are small, and French Salon learning tools work. They’re time-tested and designed to help you learn French immersively, without translation. 

French Language Salon pupils retain what they learn for life.


Founder/Director François Thibaut is one of New York’s most seasoned language instructors. Thibaut began teaching French in the Paris public school system in the late ‘60s. Then, in the early ‘70s, he came to New York to teach French to adults at the college level and privately. Within a short time, he founded his own programs: Cercle Franco-Americain specializing in adults, and The French Workshop for Children (later The Language Workshop for Children) for younger ages. Throughout his career, Thibaut has maintained a roster of private adult students. François Thibaut knows how to connect with pupils from all walks of life, and make everyone feel comfortable.

Thibaut teaches many classes himself, and he personally trains and supervises all French Salon teaching staff. Over the years, Thibaut produced the multi-award winning Professor Toto Language Education Series for children, and was featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, Parents, CNN, the BBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, Telemundo, Univision, and other major media.

Attended: Intro to Intermediate French


I took intro to intermediate here. It's a small, one-room operation, but well-established and run smoothly. I got plenty of practice and I think I learned a lot. However, the instructor repeatedly came back to the topic of dating as a subject for chatting in class, which made me a bit uncomfortable. It was a class of mostly women and he is an older man, so it just seemed a bit weird, especially when he did it more than once. I am not signing up for their next level, but it didn't seem to bother most of the other students.
