Our one-to-one teachers

What are the differences between studying in a group setting and individually?


One-to-one lessons can be tailored to your needs, level and capability. Lessons are based on topics or situations that you are familiar with and enjoy. You can even help by providing some materials to make the course specific to your needs.

During a one-to-one session a teacher can focus 100% of his/her time and energy on addressing your needs and you will certainly benefit from the increase in attention.

In a group situation the teacher’s attention is dedicated to all students opposed to just you, lessons can be very dynamic and offer a great variety of interaction between students through role-play, simulations and games.

Unless you are a beginner, it would also be helpful if you completed our FRENCH TEST for us to better assess your current level and ability.

Once you complete the form and test, we will be in touch in discuss your course arrangements. We will need at least a week or two to put together a course syllabus and schedule, as well as find a suitable teacher. You can then book via the website.
