Bonjour! Due to COVID-related safety measures, we have restricted onsite classes to 5 people in a group & online classes will continue for all ages and levels.
We are the experts at teaching French
We take teaching seriously, as the official centre for French language and culture. With 9 levels of adult French classes running every term, we have the right one for you! Our loyal teachers receive regular training. Every teacher is fully qualified: we only hire native speakers who hold Masters in Teaching French as a Foreign Laguage or Masters in Languages. Classes are limited at 8 students.
We bring French culture to you
More than just classes or private lessons, we organise regular quality cultural events and make a point of bringing culture into your classroom. Literature, wine tastings, talks, film, patisserie workshops, specialist workshops, games, art exhibition and children activites too. Another opportunity to practice your French!
