French Evening Course
These courses are ideal for anyone who wants to learn French, whether it's for travel, work, or just to develop a useful new skill. The programmes are designed by our teachers to focus on your speaking, but all communication skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) are covered. You'll be using French from your very first lesson. The courses are delivered in the evenings, so you don't have to change your daily schedule.
How we teach
We use interactive teaching methods that help you to gain confidence and have fun while you’re learning.
Your teacher will speak to you in French from the very beginning: this might sound scary, but you’ll be surprised at how much you’ll understand very quickly.
You will mainly work in pairs and groups. This means you will be constantly using the language to improve your speaking and pronunciation, as well as your accuracy, grammar, and vocabulary.
