Intensive French courses

Whether your reason for studying French is work related or personal, our goal is to ensure that our students progress in the most efficient way.

We’ve designed our program to ensure that all areas of language study are met in order to make learners more independent and confident when speaking French.

Classes are small, dynamic, fun and focused on practice. From the first day, you are immersed in the French language and you'll quickly feel comfortable with listening, conversation, pronunciation, and common expressions.
