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.

General French courses will provide you with enough grammar and vocabulary to allow you to converse with native speakers, and form a strong basis for further learning. 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.


The possibilities are not limited to these two categories, however. Those taking a Business course will generally also learn French telephone and email skills, as well as learning the basics for surviving short visits to the country. Similarly, General courses can delve deeper into certain areas of the language that you know you will need.


While it is impossible to describe the characteristics of the average language student it is clear that many who choose to take Business courses work in import-export or in companies with overseas headquarters or branches. General French courses are ideal for those students with an exam coming up. However, they can also be perfect for anyone who is thinking of moving abroad or who feels that the time is right to seek out new challenges.


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.
