Our “Beyond Beginner French” program is the perfect place to begin!

Ever feel like you will never move past the Beginner phase in French and manage a conversation even a basic one?

As a Beginner French learner for long enough now,  you’ve probably bought enough French language ‘stuff’ along your journey (books, CDs even tapes back then, apps, courses…) to be able to recognise quite a bit of French – at least in written form.

Yet you struggle to put it all together when you need it most.

At the end of this 12-week period, you’ll have focused on 3 pillars of conversation and reviewed the basic grammar to put it all together to be able to have some basic conversations confidently and use the French you have in a more fluent manner.


We’d love to help you reach your French fluency goal and here’s the link to get in touch.
