FIDE Express Preparation

 with Prêt à Parler

Prepare for success with Prêt à Parler!

Are you a resident of one of the 7 French-speaking cantons of Switzerland and would like to successfully pass your FIDE exam in order to obtain your Permis C or Swiss naturalisation?

If you want to stay in Switzerland in the long term, you will eventually need to pass the A2/B1 FIDE oral and written exams.

Applicants for residency or work permits in Suisse romande must indeed demonstrate their speaking, comprehension and writing skills in the local language, a pre-requisite in order to later obtain your Permis C (régulier/anticipé) or Swiss Naturalisation.

I recommend Prêt à Parler to anyone who is thinking about taking French lessons. The fact that you can book your lessons online makes it super easy to be organized, especially when you are a busy working mom of two. My French teacher was excellent - really kind, patient and encouraging. He went at an excellent pace and I felt fully prepared for my FIDE exam which I passed with better grades than what I needed. Do not hesitate to book a language package with them!

We are so happy we discovered Prêt à Parler. They have helped our whole family with our integration in Switzerland and applications for our C permits in January 2019. Before, we were uncomfortable speaking French (and making mistakes!), but our Super Prof makes the lessons relaxed and helps us speak more freely. On top, the school owner Isabelle really goes above and beyond to help, not just with the lessons but any overall questions and advice on the permit process. Prêt à Parler is not just a language school, but a whole support system for our integration. It is the best investment we have made!

A Few Words From Our Ravis French Learners

"

Prêt à Parler exceeded all my expectations.

I decided to strengthen my French skills and got 5 classes of one-to-one coaching, before my Swiss fide exam. Aurore was my teacher. She was extremely attentive, listened to my needs, adjusted her style, and gave amazing tips & tricks for how to handle fide exams.

Thanks to outstanding Aurore's coaching, I was able to pass B1 level in both written and verbal communication, with very high scores!

BIG THANKS to the full team, and highly recommended not only as a preparation for fide exams, but for overall improvement of French language skills.


Mindaugas Zeromskis

/ Global Brand Director at Procter & Gamble

Great platform offering a variety of different options to learn French as an English-speaking expat: from free (!) online content (podcasts, newsletter, games, etc) to tailored class packages (interactive platform, pre-recorded classes for Every Day Life French or private lessons). Topped up with great staff and customer service. I can definitely recommend reaching out to them if you are looking to improve your French


Valentina Bianchi

Excellent service and support from the whole team. I've been working on my French with super professor Vincent and it has been a great experience. A great company focused on its customers.

My wife follows Prêt à Parler on Facebook and she thought that you guys looked really good and thought you might be a good fit for me. Starting with a couple of times per week to try to ease me into learning, my Super Prof gauged the situation very well and accommodated my learning ability to the speed and content of each session. This is super important for me. Vincent was given a mammoth task of trying to ready me for FIDE, to gain level A2 in 2 months, with a serious operation right in the middle of it all. Nothing short of a herculean task. However, with his excellent skills, encouragement, and endless positivity he is solely responsible for my getting A2.

J'utilise Prêt à Parler (PaP) depuis plus d'un an avec SuperProf Brice qui me guide à travers la langue française. J'ai commencé à apprendre le français en cours collectifs dans mon institut de français local, mais j'ai découvert que j'avais besoin de cours particuliers pour passer au niveau supérieur. Brice & PaP ont été excellents en m'aidant à me développer dans des domaines où je n'avais pas assez de pratique dans les cours en groupe. J'ai également trouvé utiles certaines des activités supplémentaires de PaP, en particulier les webinaires commerciaux de Yohan. Leur administratrice, Lovely, répond rapidement aux questions et est très professionnelle. Brice a également passé du temps avec mon partenaire et lui a donné la confiance nécessaire pour passer le FIDE. 5 étoiles tout autour

I have tried other methods, but Prêt à Parler is the best! The programme and the material are engaging and the Super Profs are magnificent! Brice is absolutely brilliant! He has earned the title of being called a 'Super Prof'. He is knowledgeable, kind, charming, and patient and clearly, the student's stupidity does not phase him. He remains encouraging and supportive! I highly recommend improving your French online with Prêt à Parler. I passed A2 for Oral and B1 for Reading and Writing with the Fide Express Programme!

Prêt à Parler bietet einen hochstehenden Service an. Die IT Tools sind sehr hilfreich und leicht zu bedienen.

Meine Lernfortschritte werden mir von meinem Umfeld bestätigt. Meine Lehrerin - Laurence - besticht durch Wissen, Freundlichkeit und Flexibilität. Ich fühle mich nach jeder Lektion besser für die anstehenden Prüfungen gerüstet.

I am really enjoying my lessons with Sandra. She is very fast yet effective which I really like. She helps a lot with pronunciation and makes French learning more approachable for a beginner like me


Fecianti

/ Architect and Urbanist

"

I would highly recommend Prêt à Parler to anyone who either wants to improve their French level or want to take an official test. I used to listen to different Webinars in the evenings after work, while making dinners and did exercises online whenever I could. I also took some lessons with Yohann who is very organised, patient, and funny, and gave me a lot of tips to use in the DELF B1 exam


Maria Poacher

This is a very affordable, convenient, and effective way to learn French online. My professor customizes my learning materials and the way she teaches depending on my level and progress. Most of all, I have gained my confidence in speaking without necessarily going out of my house.


Yoshiyuki Oshima

"

I really enjoyed my lessons with Super Prof Vincent. Vincent is a miracle worker, very professional and patient and he made learning French fun. Thanks to him I just passed my FIDE exam and exceeded my own expectations plus I have gained so much more confidence in speaking French. The whole PaP team are very enthusiastic and lovely to work with. Highly recommended!
