  • Beginners with specific, time-dependent goals (eg, become proficient in 3 months)

I wanted to say thank you very much for tutoring Rebecca, she excelled this year and i know that the tutoring enabled this. you will be happy to hear i am sure that she graduated in the end as Dux of her school with a very high VHA in French so thank you, it’s a true testament to your skills and patience.

Devy provided excellent examples to practice with around real situations you would need when travelling. It was fun and Devy provided a great way to learn.

Sophie is an excellent tutor. I have been having classes and am thoroughly enjoying learning the language. Sophie is able to relate and explain things in a way that makes sense and is memorable. She also finds appropriate exercises that help with the parts that I have found most difficult. It is very interesting and I look forward to becoming fluent.

I would certainly recommend French Speak to anyone who is looking to learn French.

I really enjoy my classes with Sophie. We have a great conversation and cover a wide variety of mediums (reading, listening, grammar etc). She follows up afterwards with a great summary (even when we’ve strayed off topic!) and some helpful tips and ideas.

After struggling through my first semester of French at University I knew some urgent action was required. While searching for a private tutor, I was lucky enough to stumble upon an absolute gem – Devy! My French improved enormously and I went from barely passing the subject to getting high distinctions. Finally, grammar was explained in a logical way which made perfect sense to me! But it was my change in attitude that made the biggest difference. I suddenly found learning French fun and interesting (rather than terrifying).

I always looked forward to meeting weekly with Devy and became much more confident as a result. I would highly recommend French Speak to anyone looking to learn quality French in a supportive environment.

My time studying with French Speak has been really beneficial to my study of French. In particular, the one-on-one learning helped me to identity the areas which needed particular attention. I also found that having one consistent tutor helped me gain confidence. This assisted me in passing my DELF exam. I would recommend individual lessons of this kind to anybody seeking to improve their French.

Thank you so much for your help this year! I am very happy to tell you that my overall result for French Extension was an A- which I am delighted with! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thanks for being such a wonderful teacher. I have really enjoyed our weekly lessons. I will be in touch with you again in the New Year.

Victoria got a HA in French, thanks to you she managed to raise her French mark a little, it was slipping but she ended up with a B+. French Speak gave us just what we needed at a very late stage, very accommodation and understanding, thanks so much.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our classes with Devy. She is very patient and willing to answer our many questions. Everything we learnt will help on our trip to France.
