About our classes

Group adult classes are designed to help you progress in the 4 skills: speaking, listening, writing and reading. The teacher uses a communicative and fun approach, even for learning grammar!

You will learn French with truly qualified and experienced native French teachers in small class groups (max. 8 students, but generally less in a class) for 2 hours weekly, focussing on communication, through a diverse range of activities and projects.  All our classes normally take place at our centre, conveniently located in Central North Oxford for ease of access from North Oxford, Jericho, Summertown, Central Oxford and Oxfordshire.  From complete beginners (A1) to advanced (C1/C2).
