    Hello everyone

    Can you please tell me what "leçons à la carte" means? Here is the sentence.

    "Réservez vos leçons à la carte avec un enseignant diplômé de 6 h à 22 h."

    I thought it meant lessons paid with the credit card but I'm not sure. Thank you very much for your help.

    It's not lessons paid by credit card but lessons you can select, take and pay one by one, like when you are in a restaurant; same expression

    À la carte is usually used in restaurants to indicate items that can be ordered separately.

    In your context, instead of items on a menu, they are lessons. You can choose any lesson you want.

    Definitions of the expression: à la carte can be found here.

    While obviously confiming the other answers, I feel that the concept of "flexibility" is being put forward here.
