Cours de français en groupe – Group lessons

Whether you are a complete beginner or you want to prepare a trip to Paris or you need to seal a deal with your French counterpart, we have the right course for you. 😉

Level 1 covers the basics. It takes 30 hours to complete it on average. At the end of this course, you will receive a certificate of achievement proving you have completed the A1 level of the CEFR and are ready for an A2 course. Please find the detailed programme below.

Level 2 typically implies that you have studied the language for 100 hours minimum (including your GSCEs!) . Once completed it will take you to the threshold level; that sweet spot where you can finally hold a (basic) conversation and get by in the country. After finishing Level 2, you’ll be a proficient A2 user of the language, ready to take on the intricacies of pronoms, subjunctive and tense uses in general.

Level 3 will put you in real-life situations and make you practice what you already know, you need to be relatively comfortable with passe composé and have enough vocabulary to get by on a trip to France. These lessons are pitched at an intermediate level (B1/B2)

What’s my level?

The best way for us to put you with the right group is to assess your level at a trial or taster lesson. You can also have a look at our programmes below, as a result you should be able to determine your level. Roughly speaking, level 1 is for beginners, level 2 is for elementary, and level 3 is intermediate and above. Level 3 is your chance to have an “on-demand” grammar lessons. For example, if you’re not too sure on when to use imparfait and passé composé, or the subjunctive, you can ask the teacher before the lesson what you’d like to work on. All materials used in the lesson are authentic to prepare you for your next trip!

Taster Lessons

If you’re still unsure whether we are the right school for you, join us for our monthly French taster lesson. They take in Angel or Tottenham Court Road. Just bring a pen and paper and enjoy the evening. During those lessons, we’ll chatting (en français, bien sûr!) and sharing food! We either go to a Wine bar in Angel or at a French cafe in Tottenham Court Road. Drinks and nibbles are included in your tuition fees.

 

L’Afternoon Tea des Mamans

As a new mum, you’re super busy. You have no time for yourself. And you’d love to meet new people and learn a new language but your little one is too little for school, and that limits what you can do. L’afternoon tea des Mamans is a weekly event for mums who have some interest in French culture or language. We’ll learn a few useful phrases in French in a very relaxed atmosphere. Finally the goal is not to become bilingual but rather to meet new friends and do something useful while chatting over coffee and croissant. Little babies in their prams are more than welcome, but for health and safety reasons we cannot accept toddlers.
Also drinks and croissants are included in the price.
