We offer three options of classes:-

  1. Small group weekly sessions in a number of locations
  2. Learning Online - on demand streamed video classes for all ages and abilities (see main menu)
  3. One to one or small group classes in your home 

Group Weekly Sessions

We offer small class sizes with either one or two teachers per class. They range from 30 mins – 1 hour, depending on age and ability, ensuring maximum concentration and involvement. Classes match ability and level to ensure that each child can fulfil their own potential. With the emphasis on small classes, we can tailor each session to meet the specific needs of your child.

We have three different levels of classes :-

1. Stories With Rory – 2- 4 years

2. Little Learners – 4-6 years

3. Active Learners – 5-10 years

Class Content:

Each week the sessions will follow a similar format to make every child feel as comfortable as possible. We introduce different topics each half term, with different levels of French depending on the age group of the class. Our classes are very relaxed and the emphasis is encouraging every child to have a go and increase their confidence in speaking in the new language. We provide lots of praise and use stickers/hand stamps to reward children for their efforts. We celebrate French traditions and festivals and introduce events such as Mardi Gras, Pancake Day, French cheese tastings and special cultural sessions on France.

Stories With Rory classes:

Come and join Rory our French puppet for a fun-filled 30 minute class with a French story, plenty of songs, musical instruments, games and bubbles every Monday and Thursday during term time at 3.30pm at The Memorial Centre, East Common, Gerrards Cross, SL9 7AD.

Little Learners: 

Every Monday and Thursday during term time at 4.00pm at The Memorial Centre, East Common, Gerrards Cross SL9 7AD

These classes are ideal for children aged 4-6 years and offer a gentle introduction to French. We follow a different fun topic each half term, plus plenty of singing, stories, games, musical instruments, counting and greetings. Cost £9.00 per class payable termly.

Active Learners:

Every Monday and Thursday during term time at 4.30pm at The Memorial Centre, East Common, Gerrards Cross SL9 7AD. These classes are suitable for children aged 5 -10 years – different classes are organised for different ages/abilities. Your child might already do French at school and want to continue learning in a small, relaxed environment or it might be the only opportunity they have to learn another language outside of school. These classes are lots of fun with plenty of team games, songs, stories and we teach new vocabulary and grammar (age appropriate) with a different topic each half term.

Les Petits Choux Classes: 

Les Petits Choux (Little Cabbages) is a baby and toddler class designed to teach your little ones aged 9 months – 4 years French in a small, relaxed environment.

Research proves that babies start understanding words from as early as 6 months, much earlier than they begin to speak, so it’s never too early to start your child’s language learning journey. Toddlers that have some language already, will love learning new words and phrases in French.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak French, come along and learn together! Our classes are designed for the absolute beginners – adults and children – and you’ll be sent words to the songs we will be singing so you can practise together at home if you wish.

Each 30 minute session will follow a similar structure, starting with our Bonjour/Hello song, and then with the help of our little puppet, we will introduce ourselves and find out how everyone is feeling.

Each half term we will introduce a different fun topic, and take the children on a magical language journey. It might be under the sea, on the farm, at the zoo, on the bus or in the arctic, with lots of bright and sensory props and resources. There will always be a story read in English and French to signal the end of the class.

Before you go, join in with some bubbles, musical instruments and don’t leave without your sticker!

Classes start on Tuesday 3rd May at 9.30am at The Memorial Centre, East Common, Gerrards Cross SL9 7AD
