French and German Tuition

KS3 (11-14 years)

Build confidence

Learning foreign languages at secondary school is a very different experience from primary. A weekly top-up, to go over new concepts, help with homework or plug any holes in understanding, can go a long way to smoothing the transition. Students will experience a practical blend of conversation, phonics & spelling, vocabulary building, writing skills and, most importantly, enjoyment!

Individual: £30 per hour.
Pair: £45 per hour.



Holiday, Holiday Home and Business Survival Classes

Planning a holiday, using your holiday home or facing a business trip abroad? You can gain a whole lot more enjoyment, and a whole lot more business, if you can engage with people in their own language, even if only on a basic or intermediate level.

  • Most people will appreciate your efforts and will generally be more helpful and polite.

  • You are less likely to be "ripped off" if you know your numbers!

  • It's amazing how much enjoyable conversation can be had if both parties have a try in each other's language.

  • It is estimated that one in five UK firms (21%) were concerned that weaknesses in foreign language proficiency was losing them business and half (52%) of those were looking to recruit staff with appropriate skills. (CBI/Pearson Survey 2012)
