On the Intermediate and GCSE revision course, you will have the unique opportunity of a one-to-one with a native French speaker with no English ability. The experience will allow you to really practice your French in a real life situation. 




French beginners course




On the Beginners' course, there will be an activity carried out at the local village market, which will give you the opportunity to speak French in a real life situation.



On all our residential courses you can expect to be in a group of  between 3 - 5 students. The teaching is focused and quite intensive, with class sizes kept small to allow for individual support. 



Parents are welcome to accompany teenage students and family accommodation can be provided. Teenagers travelling independently are supervised from the airport at arrival, throughout the course, until their return to the airport.

The courses are intensive, and yet delivered in a relaxed and friendly way which is entirely non threatening.
