French Lessons



One of the principal aims of the Association is to help those moving to France to settle in

And what better way is there, than to learn the language?

You will learn French in small weekly classes at very attractive prices, and will soon feel much more comfortable with the language you hear around you every day.

  • Four levels – “Beginner“, “Intermediate“, “Advanced” and “Advanced Plus” (subject to a sufficient number of registrations)
  • Half a term is the minimum enrolment period.
  • The weekly two hour lessons are held over three terms, as per the local schools.
  • Reading, writing and conversation are all covered.
  • You can join at any time during the year subject to there being a space available.
  • The teacher, Alain, is a French native, qualified to teach the language and is very experienced.

You will be made most welcome.

How to enrol

Step 1: contact Lynn Chesters (details below) to check that there is room on the course you wish to follow. Numbers are limited in order to keep class sizes small so this step is essential.

If you are not sure which class would suit you, Lynn will be able to guide you.

  • Your teacher, Alain, may suggest you move up or down a level after the first one or two lessons – once he has had a chance to assess your language skills.

Step 2: these lessons are exclusively for members of the association; so if you have not already joined EuroMayenne, please fill in a membership form (see Steps 3 and 4 below) and write a cheque for appropriate amount or preferably transfer the fee to the Association account..

Your teacher Alain will ask to see your membership certificate (a document sent to you when your subscription for EuroMayenne has been received).

Step 3: Print off and fill in an enrolment form (which comes with a membership form).
