A foreign language is, above all, a vehicle of self-expression, exchange and sharing. However, making the first step is not always easy. Since our lessons focus on interaction and role play, we will give you the necessary tools and confidence to be able to make the first step and put into practise what you learn. Your vocabulary, fluency, accuracy, pronunciation and listening skills will greatly improve.
French for the family
These lessons focus on role play, games, word building but most of all on conversation and interaction. They are designed to adapt to each family’s situation. Indeed, whether the members of the family prefer to work together, in groups or alone, the format of each lesson is designed to fit whatever suits you best.
Government-funded French Lessons
What is a “Compte Personnel de Formation”?
The aim of the “Compte Personnel de Formation” (CPF), or personal training account, is to increase the level of qualification of each and everyone so as to secure his or her own professional career path. It is based upon the principle of a time bank, which starts when you enter the labour market and continues throughout your working life. Introduced in January 2015, it replaces the earlier system known as “Droit Individuel de Formation” (or DIF).

Phonetics and Grammar lessons
Phonetics and grammar often go together since one may help you to comprehend the other. Indeed, they are two ingredients that will help you to understand the structure and the functioning of the French language more rapidly.
In order to help you understand the different rules that regulate phonetics, thanks to conversation, audio supports and reading, we will work together on the different French sounds and words.
Grammar is an essential part of the French language. It may appear intimidating but in French, like in many other languages, grammar helps you to understand how a language functions and this can be learnt.
Translation, Proofreading, Editing
Translation is not just a skill, it is also an exquisite art. It requires an excellent knowledge of the subtleties of languages. Whether from English into French, or from French into English, I always aim for a high-quality translation. Words are powerful, and it is extremely important to ensure that the original text is accurately translated. My translation services cover a wide range of topics: websites, blogs, ebooks, books, short stories, plays, films, documentaries, screenplays, reports, memos, press releases, essays, dissertations and proposals.
Proofreading involves the careful reading (and rereading) of an unfinalized document and is essential in conveying a message effectively. Every author knows that despite the spelling-checking abilities of modern word processors a human proofreader is indispensable. For example, I will remove and correct errors in:
– non-conventional use of upper and lower case characters
– figure presentation
Editing is a more in-depth service. I will of course correct formatting and spelling errors but also, re-arrange the text so that it becomes more coherent and concise and flows more easily.
– Authors, journalists, bloggers, websites
-) website content, blogs, ebooks, books, short stories, plays, or screenplays
– Business, Corporate or Government Clients
-) reports, memos, manuals, marketing materials, press releases, or other business documents
– Students or Academics
-) essays, term papers, dissertations, newspaper articles, essays, proposals
