What sets us apart?

Here are 5 fantastic reasons why you should learn French with us...

1. Our unrivalled experience 

When it comes to teaching French, we know what we’re talking about – and we have 120 years’ experience to back it up! Aside from being one of the most well-known and reputable schools for learning French, we are part of a global network of 834 Alliance Française centres located in 135 countries around the world.

2. Our strong sense of community

Get involved! Our classes are full of like-minded students and teachers, all united by the mutual desire to discover (rediscover) the joys of learning French. Learning a foreign language does not exist in a vacuum; not only does it demand acquiring new words, mastering vowels or practicing grammar, it’s also about encountering culture, connection and interaction. This is why our classes are not only places of learning, they are also social arenas for sharing and engaging with others.

3. Our accredited, French native-speaking teachers

Who better to teach you how to nail that perfect guttural ‘r’ or guide you through the complexities of the subjunctive than our experienced, French native-speaking teachers? With their formal, accredited training recognised by the French government, you are in safe hands with our highly professional teaching team.

4. Our immersive method of teaching

Learning through immersion is a proven, highly-successful technique for teaching a foreign language. This is the basis of our teaching method and it involves guiding the class entirely en français. It may seem a little intimidating at first, but, it’s the best way to learn and improve – just like your very own stay in France!

5. Our technology

Many of our modern classrooms are equipped with SMART boards and all of our teachers employ new technologies and digital learning tools. These include Web 2.0, virtual immersion tools, and mobile apps for an improved learning experience. Our recently- launched online courses, delivered through Zoom and an e-learning platform, earned a TimeOut Award in the category best way to upskill during lockdown.
