If you are looking for someone to help you start learning French or improve what you already know then look no further. I am a native French speaker with many years of experience teaching French as a foreign language to students of all ages and levels, individually and also in groups, both in the public and private sector.

SampleLessons can take place at home or in the workplace and are customised to suit your needs; whether this is holiday or business French, preparation for relocating to a French speaking country, conversational French or coaching for exams. 

Lessons are arranged by appointment and can be very flexible.
If you prefer to attend a class, I can offer you a place in my Intermediate and advanced  courses which are run privately in Fareham, Hants.

Lessons are generally designed to improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills, enabling you to communicate effectively in a wide range of language situations. While acquiring the necessary skills for your further study, work or leisure needs, you can also learn more about the culture of French speaking countries which adds interest to the language learning experience. So that you know how you are progressing, continuous informal assessments can be provided and feedback given after each lesson.

There is no standard tuition plan as the content of each lesson takes into account  your goals, interests and ability, and gives you the opportunity to achieve your potential working at your own pace and using a wide range of learning activities  such as exercises, discussions, videos, games – learning French can be fun!
