Our lessons follow the award winning La Jolie Ronde programme. The children benefit from a fun, structured and progressive approach. We strive to give the children the confidence and ability to excel at learning French.
We make the most of any celebrations such as Christmas, Epiphany, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's dayto have a special lesson on that day.
We also share food from time to time: delicious croissant, baguettes, pain au chocolat, French cheeses and saucisson.
What happens during the lessons?
We always start by doing the register in French and a "Bain Français" (French warm up to recycle the vocabulary and common expressions). We practise numbers, colours, the date etc...and we sing a few French songs. We focus on a weekly theme/topic, listen to stories, play games, do some work in the book etc... We set the homework and say "AU REVOIR".
Please contact us if you would like to register your child.

“Jennifer makes learning french fun and interactive. We feel particularly grateful that the children have had exposure to the french language at primary school, which has many benefits including making it easier to get on well with languages at secondary school. “
My daughters have both really enjoyed attending Jennifer's French Club since Reception to year 4. The lessons are fun and interactive, engaging their interests and helping them to develop the skills and confidence to speak another language.They particularly love days where activities involve French food or festivals, where they get to experience all things French as well as speaking in French! They've also attended and loved the French Holiday Club. I would highly recommend the classes!
Jennifer has taught my eldest daughter French for the last 5 years and I have just started my youngest child who is 5 with her. Jennifer is an amazing teacher, she uses interactive and exciting fun methods to teach French and both my girls love her classes. She is patient, experienced and knows how to keep the attention of my child with ADHD. She teaches about French culture as well as learning the language and my children have a really rich experience in her fun and creative classes. I would recommend to anyone.
