Students at Beginner levels

I found Languistique’s novel approach to learning grammar using interactive games very successful and fun. At the end of each term, we were given a series of questions which I found very useful to assess how much I had learned.  I still use them now!  I would thoroughly recommend Languístíque beginner course as an enjoyable and excellent way to learn French.’

Lucy C, Kent, Beginner

 ' Francoise has a true ability to inspire and educate to a broad and diverse range of students. All lessons are structured and fun and our fortnightly lessons are something we all look forward to. The support materials are excellent - CDs and portfolios - and importantly we are all making good progress in our French skills and I can't recommend Francoise highly enough. Merci beaucoup!'

'If you are thinking of learning French I can recommend this language school. I am entering my third term and remain fully committed to learning French. I particularly like the CD provided at the beginning of a new term accompanied with a french and english transcript. We are provided with handouts during each lesson and have lots of fun with hands on activities to consolidate our learning.'

'I joined this term and have really enjoyed the lessons. I feel I have developped and learnt more and have become more confident. Really good fun. I would recommend it to anyone looking to brush up on their French or just to enjoy speaking it with a 'real French person' once a week!'

Helen Goodwin, Smeeton, Leicestershire, Intermediate

'Francoise structures and delivers her french lessons in a way that caters for all styles of learning. She takes the time to find out your personal interests and builds them into the modules so you feel connected with the learning. It's allowed me the confidence to hold conversations in French in social environments whilst holidaying nd working in France'

Daniel Peart, Leicestershire, Intermediate plus

'Great quality lessons. Wonderful environment, very engaging, filled with activities aimed to improve communication, vocabulary and practice grammar.
After trying other classes (county, Leicester university) Languistique has the right balance of vocabulary, grammar and practice (listening, speaking and communication skills)
Highly recommended!

'They are the best French lessons that I have had. Françoise is a very supportive teacher. Lessons are well planned, with good activities to keep you interested and to stimulate learning. It's fun learning French with Françoise!'

Tim Claydon, Kibworth, Leicestershire, Advanced

I've been having lessons with Françoise for almost 3 years now and can absolutely recommend her, she is an excellent teacher and makes learning enjoyable, putting a lot of thought and energy in to the lessons. My French has improved immeasurably since I started and I've really enjoyed learning about the cultural aspects of French life with her too.

Charlie Christina Martin, Leicestershire, Advanced

'I had weekly conversation classes with Françoise for 2 years as a refresher course at an advanced level prior to a 1 year contract as a hospital doctor in a French hospital. My experience with Françoise was excellent. She has a real ability to explain grammar clearly. She listened patiently when I spoke but made appropriate corrections and suggestions at just the right frequency. I would recommend her to anybody needing French conversation practice at a reasonably advanced level.

Dr Michael Coutts, Kent, advanced conversations


Business French Students

'My objective was to recover a level of fluency that I had lost and to focus on business situations: meetings, travelling, interviews etc. Françoise was able to tailor a course which suited my needs perfectly.  She used a wide variety of learning materials including some specialist materials relevant to my business. This really helped to make my learning relevant to my business and useful for my job. I would be happy to recommend Languístíque to any business.'
