Our French teachers are all either qualified FLE professionals (FLE stands for Français Langue Etrangère or French as a Foreign Language) or have an equivalent diploma or experience.

As a general rule our teachers are native speakers of French who are highly qualified French teachers and have an excellent knowledge of French culture.

Our teaching team is extremely dedicated to providing all students with the best learning experience and outcomes while making every student matter.
