Adults’ classes: 2 hours per week

In our French classes for adults, we aim to get our students to feel at ease when conversing in French about art, news items, literature – or simply to chat, as one likes doing about the weather or about oneself. Given the very small number in our groups, this option works very well for those who cannot do French intensively.

We restrict the numbers in classes to 5, this specifically to ensure the most propitious conditions in which to learn and practise a language. We have to make sure that each student has ample time and opportunity to express themselves orally. Time flies by as activities are tiered: new grammar points put into immediate practise, new vocabulary and idiomatic expressions put into immediate use, discussions around chosen topics, all this in a spirit of conviviality and camaraderie that encourages progress and self-assurance in handling French.

Our DELF and DALF courses are structured around the recommendations of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), a global reference used for active language learning.

We prepare our students by working on the four skills required for the DELF and DALF examinations: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

100% of our students passed their exams.

Enrolling

We enrol students throughout the year provided we have available places at their level. If you have learnt French previously a level test will enable us to establish you current level and find the best programme for you. The charge for the test is £35 and this will be credited towards your course fees.
