Course testimonials:

  • James said: I think the course should really be taught in French only. There was a bit too much English conversation from tutor, more so than French instruction. The tutor is very friendly and the venue was clean. The complimentary coffee and tea was appreciated.

  • Peter said: The opportunity to build confidence with other beginners.

  • Barbara said: This was a good ‘refresher’ course for me having studied French before but with a few years break I found it slow at times with the other complete beginners however I did a lot of work at home to make up for this. The tutor was very good trying to cope with the mixed levels in the class - maybe a suggestion would be to take a test to gauge levels with possible students like me I am very glad to have taken this course & will continue studying.
