One-to-one General/Business

French Course in Portsmouth

The fact that our language courses are tailor made for the students means that it doesn't matter what your reasons for learning French are.

A General course in French will grant you 'Survival French' - enough under your belt to furnish you with a working knowledge for the purpose of visiting the country, allowing you to introduce yourself and engage in conversation with native speakers. The Business courses we provide will give you the ability to cope in a more formal French environment whenever you need to.

If you want to include some less formal elements in a Business French course then you can do this too. Whatever you need to learn is what the course will be based on. While a General course will tend to concentrate on the basics of the language you can ask for it to include whatever you feel will be important to your future plans.

We have a wide range of Business course clients for a variety of needs; including people who are off to work for a foreign administration, people working in a corporation with overseas headquarters, and import/export specialists. Our French students take on General courses for a wide number of different reasons. Some of them might be planning on moving abroad while others could simply be looking for a challenge or want to learn more about the French culture.

You have the option to participate in a free language consultation before your course begins. This short consultation, usually over the phone, will reveal the work situations you will find yourself in and the terminology you will need to know in order for us to better design your course. This information, in addition to details regarding your preferred methods of learning, will be used to understand your specific requirements, work demands, and the language goals you wish to achieve from your course.

The trainer was very good, and it was helpful to learn from an actual native speaker, who knew French perfectly.
