Courses start week commencing 20th April 2020.

Coronavirus Update
Due to the Coronavirus, we have moved the current courses onto a ‘live online platform’, which can be accessed via computer, tablet or phone and have found it to be a brilliant way to deliver language classes. Therefore, we have decided to continue the April courses in this way.

We will begin the term with ‘live online lessons’, where students and the teacher can see each other and speak all together and in smaller groups. The teacher can present by sharing slides, worksheets and videos. These interactive facilities allow linguistic games to be played and fun activities to happen. We have been trialling this with our current courses and have received positive feedback from our students.

Regarding cost, the initial price will be the same, then for each lesson that takes place online, a 25% discount will apply, payable to you at the end of the course. We hope the course can end as face to face lessons at the venue, where we will have a big party in the lessons to celebrate.


A1 : Beginner – no previous experience of learning French, a complete beginner’s course.
A2-B1 : Intermediate – – can conjugate verbs in the present tense, have seen past and future tenses and know enough vocabulary to form sentences and hold a simple conversation.
