Why learn French at our School? From the onset, students feel enormously supported by their respective tutors. They are given clear linguistic objectives and a defined tuition programme. Students’ progress is checked through regular tests.
Tutors use role plays and audiovisual materials; we want you to feel as if you were in France (though still in Oxford).
Tuition is given in French – the best way to improve communication skills in everyday situations, which results in natural and lively interaction in French (our classes can be very animated!)
We use local pubs, French restaurants and bars, visits to museums, book clubs, quiz nights and discussion groups to enhance every opportunity of recreating a moment in time on French territory.
Our tutors are:
All native French speakers
Postgraduates from French universities with Masters degrees in either French as a Foreign Language or Masters in French Literature, History, Sciences, Law, Politics and Economics or Philosophy.
General French at all levels of competence
Specialised French (FOS – Français sur Objectifs Spécifiques) in the fields of business, law, medicine, the arts, and even in Medieval French, as recently requested by an Oxford scholar.
In our comfortable premises in North Oxford, our Institute provides French courses and classes which are either tailor-made for the individual – or held in our Mini Classes, exceptionally small classes (maximum of 5) for students of a similar level. These are scheduled weekly, and a course is typically 12 weeks long.
