French

Learn French — Courses Online & In London

French remains one of the most popular languages in the world spoken by more than 220 million people across the globe. French is one of the official languages in several countries including Canada, Belgium and Senegal.

If you are already fluent in speaking English, learning French can be fairly easy due to the sheer number of words derived from the French vocabulary. For example, did you know that approximately 3 out of every 10 English words are thought to have French origins? These include 'souvenir', 'bouquet' and 'omelette'.

We offer courses for all levels. Whether you are a beginner, a tad rusty or already fluent and want to enjoy French conversation or you want to improve your knowledge with an advanced course.
