Course testimonials:

  • Trish said: Kathleen made the learning experience very enjoyable and I'm looking forward to Level 2!

  • Wilson said: It was an interesting class and Joycelene made it easy and fun.

  • John said: Kathleen is excellent. Whilst obviously highly competent in her subject, she is also a terrific teacher, with great enthusiasm in her encouragement of others to learn French. Impressive that she went out of her way to incorporate the latest news in her teaching resources. The course was fun, with an ideal class size and therefore I would highly recommend. On the other hand, I found the venue to be very poor. For the first two weeks we were in a room that was more like a deep freeze, whilst we also had to walk up and down 7 flights because lifts weren't working. Even arranging the coffee/tea for the break seemed to much for the College to manage - spoons or stirrers were often nowhere to be seen, and at one session noone had bothered to put water in the urn! This kind of incompetent venue management seriously undermines the excellence of your teaching staff.
