“Both the children Matthew (doing ‘A’ level) and Catherine (GCSE) enjoyed their French lessons, even after a day skiing!  Their tutor Christelle was lively, had them engaged in what they were doing and very helpful.  She definitely has a talent for teaching..”

Rebecca Leung

“Please pass on our thanks to Christelle and Deborah.  They really did help the girls and gave them a lot more confidence in their French studies.  They made the language seem more relevant and as a result, the girls wish to continue their French studies after their GCSEs now!”
