French

Why learn French with us?

I have a lifelong passion for French and love to share this with others. My aim is for you to have the confidence to go to the French speaking world, to be able to completely immerse yourself in the culture and to use the language. With that in mind, my French classes are designed to put you at ease, are very informal, interactive and conversation based.

At the same time, I firmly believe that there is not some magic “catch-all” way of learning French and for this reason, I use a wide variety of materials and methods tailor made for my groups. This includes, among other things, course books, reading books, podcasts, French music, videos, press articles and oh yes grammar books but above all conversation.

All classes are 75 minutes long but sometimes we may run over, if we are having too much fun or I get carried away. There is also flexibility to switch between classes to fit in around your other commitments or to try out different levels to make sure you are in the best class for you. Just have a chat with me beforehand, if you want to do this.
