France is the most popular tourist destination in the world, with over 60 million visitors per year.  The British make up a large proportion of these visitors, but many French people do not speak English, especially in the more rural areas, making a knowledge of the language important, and for those with properties in France, it is essential to be able to converse with officials, tradesmen and neighbours.

I offer French tuition to students of all ages and levels, from beginners to University standard.  Tuition is tailor-made for the student, whether the preference is for general conversation, specific topics (such as business), grammar or a combination of these.

Coaching for the GCSE, AS and A level(A2) exams is available at any time of year.  Tuition can be tailored to the exam board in question, and help with exam technique is provided by means of past examination papers.

A  minimum of 1 hour per lesson is advisable for adults.  Longer sessions may be recommended for more advanced students or those who wish to progress more quickly.  Half hour lessons may be preferable for young children.  Lessons are usually on a weekly basis but other arrangements may be possible.

Tuition can be individual or in groups and lessons are held in Leyland or Darwen.  Home or work visits may also be possible, subject to availability. For individuals, the first lesson costs £30 and subsequent lessons are charged at this rate if booked in blocks of 4 hours or more.  Single lessons are charged at £32 per hour.  Rates for groups can be supplied on request.

I also offer a translation service. This is charged at £0.10 per word (French-English) and £0.12 per word (English-French) with a minimum charge of £25. Translation work is returned to the customer by email, as a typed Word document.

It is assumed that you will attend lessons as arranged.  There is no charge for lessons cancelled with at least 24 hours' notice.  Cancellations within 24 hours of the lesson may be charged for.
