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.


Depending on Covid-19 governmental, préfectoral & local regulations
at the start of Term-time, lessons WILL be held in the CLASSROOM
with ONLINE courses being held IF necessary.

Beginners on Thursday mornings from 10:00am to 12:00pm

  • 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.
