French Course in Portsmouth

It's no problem if you need to take French lessons specifically for personal use or to help with your career - our trainers mould the lesson plan to your precise needs.

A General French course will concentrate on providing you with the knowledge you need in order for your trips abroad to be more interesting. You will no longer need to shy away from conversations with the locals. Business courses are aimed at those wishing to work in the target language - so a working knowledge of etiquette in French business, as well as developing proficient reading and writing skills.


Our French courses would not be fixed to a specific curriculum, however. You know the specifics of what you will need from your new language, and all you need do is tell your teacher. Perhaps if you are taking a Business course, you may want to focus more on French telephone or email skills, or a specific vocabulary for your line of work. In the same vein, the syllabus for General courses is not set in stone - all you need do is ask your teacher.


Typical learners who choose our Business courses are import/export professionals, agents for multi-national companies, and those involved with foreign governments and universities. 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.
