Overview of French lessons

We support with French from children as young as 5, through to GCSE, A level and University Degree standard. We can tutor adult learners who are keen to explore new language skills, whether as a hobby, a necessary requirement, or for those who want to progress through their language proficiency levels (CEFR A2 - C1).

We also offer bespoke services for businesses, schools and individuals who need extra training, whether that's learning to communicate verbally, reading or essay writing.

Our highly experienced tutors can help you prepare for requirements such as: DELF (French Studies Diploma) and DALF (Advanced French Studies Diploma) to certify the French language competency of candidates outside of France. Plus VISA exams and the French Nationality Test.

    Case study

    Faris came to us for French GCSE tuition because he wasn't making progress with his previous tutor. He had a natural curiosity with the language and needed a tutor to inspire him to keep him motivated. He said "I am learning a lot more than with my last teacher and I find these lessons are not only productive but comfortable.

      What parents and students are
      saying about our French classes


      Just a brief email about my trial lesson with David today. It went flawlessly! Not only did the technology work, but David had pitched the taster session at exactly the right level for me. Thanks for organising that. We’ve agreed a regular lesson on Saturday mornings.


      Lisa, parent of Tom, KS3

      Tom is thoroughly enjoying his classes and David is obviously as enthusiastic teacher as Tom is a French student - a great match! We are extremely grateful that Tom is able to carry on with his learning, especially with all that is happening in schools at the moment. The fact that he so looks forward to his lessons with David and that he really wants to speak and learn more French, makes me a very happy parent indeed.
