Our Language Classes

Beginners French

For the real beginner with absolutely no or long since forgotten French. Start with 1, 2, 3 and a, b, c. Learn how to roll your rrrrs and the difference between "le" and "la". Find out about the similarities and differences between the French and English languages and life here and in France. Build up quickly in confidence to short conversations about yourself or on topics such as shopping or eating out.
Thursday mornings at 9.45 am

Beginners Plus French

Not an absolute Beginner. Feeling a little rusty and maybe not quite ready for the different tenses and more challenging conversations at Improver level ? Know your numbers and can have a basic conversation in French ? This is the course for you. Here we focus on communicating a more detailed message; on accuracy; on asking questions to find out more and then (crucially) understanding the answer. All within the context of talking about yourself and daily life in and on visits to France.
Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm, Wednesday mornings at 9.45 am and Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm

Improvers French

Best suited to learners with a secure grasp of the key aspects of the language eg: masculine and feminine; present tense; agreement and those who can comfortably hold a straightforward conversation in French. Here your vocabulary can flourish and your confidence bloom as you master the perfect, imperfect and future tenses. We work on accuracy of those little words; on increasing spoken speed; on colloquialisms and everyday slang; on pronunciation. All within the context of talking about yourself and daily life in and on visits to France.
Classes on Monday evenings at 7.30pm and Tuesday mornings at 9.45 am

Whether you're wanting to learn French to better communicate when on holiday; for business purposes; for a move abroad or purely for enjoyment, I'm keen to meet your needs. With a degree in French, German and Spanish; university qualifications gained in France and Spain; a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and over 15 years experience in education both as a secondary teacher and trainer of adult learners I know my stuff. I'm passionate about all things French and know how rewarding learning a language can be - especially when it's made fun and no matter what your age !

Social Events

Every lesson is pretty sociable but there's also an optional termly social event for learners such as a French games night, a French film night or a meal out together.
This should be white.
Current, new and prospective learners are invited to a "Petanque au Pub" evening on 13th September to "parlez un peu de francais" over a pint or a Pimms and try out their ball rolling skills. Get in touch if you'd like to join us. We'd love to meet you !
