French in Cambridge

Globally regarded as the language of love and culture, French is the sixth-most-spoken language in the world, with 220 million speakers. And this language’s influence isn’t limited to just one country, as it is prevalent throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Africa and Canada. This includes the UK, where many speakers live in the city of Cambridge: the number of people claiming French ancestry amounts to 1,500, according to the 2010 census. Start a language course today and keep up with Cambridge’s Francophone community, take advantage of new professional opportunities and even enrol in higher French education. Language Trainers offers native, qualified tutors in Cambridge who are ready to help you achieve your language learning goals.

In these uncertain times, it can be hard or scary to continue traditional face-to-face language lessons. But don’t worry: at Language Trainers, we offer online classes to suit your needs and schedule! Reach out to us to know more about French classes.

Why Study French in Cambridge

For Work and Studies: Sign up for a French course today and broaden your professional horizons in Cambridge. Many international companies based in the city are always looking for bilingual speakers to add to their teams, like Genie Ventures, Rochester Electronics and CV Screens. Or if you intend to study French at university instead, you will be happy to know that Cambridge University has undergraduate courses for you. For instance, one undergraduate course in French studies covers the literature, thought and culture of France from the early medieval period to the present day. As well as language and academic knowledge, you will acquire important transferable skills, such as analysis and expression, which will be valuable to you whatever your chosen path after university. Start learning French in advance to ensure your proficiency is capable of taking on this exciting course in Cambridge!

For Culture: If you would like to get in-depth knowledge about the French culture, you can do so without ever leaving Cambridge. For instance, you can attend the many events organised by the Alliance Fraçaise on Hills Road. This institution aims to encourage and develop knowledge of the French language and culture, and to promote cultural and educational exchanges between France and, in this case, Cambridge. Meanwhile, if you like cinema, you can attend the Ciné Club, held every Tuesday, where you can get together with other people interested in French cinema, watch classic and contemporary films in their original language and, once the film is over, discuss them using the flawless French you learn with us! If you like literature, they also have a book club that works in a similar way.

For Social: Studying French will also give you the chance to connect with other speakers of the language living in Cambridge. Join the Cambridge French Social Meetup, a group of people who get together with the aim of meeting new people locally while practising their French. They get together twice a week at cafes and restaurants, so take advantage of this opportunity to further practise what you learn in your lessons with us! Another option is the InterNations space for French in Cambridge, which bring together expats and people with an interest in learning more about the Francophone language and culture. The Alliance Française also organises a Lunch in French every month. This is a great opportunity not only to try delicious French cuisine but also to socialise with like-minded people using your new language skills.
