French Courses On-line

We have now introduced our very successful On-line French Tuition, using email with an optional Skype module. Courses last for 6 weeks, at a level to suit your needs.

An enrolled student will be given a selection of sentences to translate, a piece of French to read and answer questions on, and an article in English to translate into French.

The work can be done at any time during the week, with answers being sent out at the end of each week. The Skype sessions will be the only 'oral' segment and can be with or without video.

Please follow the On-line link on the Language Courses page, or email us for more details.
