The course exceeded my expectations as the teacher was excellent and had carefully constructed the lessons so we managed to read, write , listen and talk (well just about!) in french . To get the best out of the course you need to do a little homework

Review by Tessa (recently retired) / (Posted on 21/11/2019)
This is a course that does what it says on the label! Excellent for refreshing elementary French even if it's been many years since studying the language.The course is informal with active participation encouraged but in a completely non-intimidating and relaxed way.
