We are the experts at teaching French

We take teaching seriously, as the official centre for French language and culture. With 9 levels of adult French classes running every term, we have the right one for you!

Every teacher is fully qualified and receives up-to-date training.  We only hire native speakers who hold Masters in Teaching French as a Foreign Language or Masters in Languages.

We bring French culture to you

More than just classes or private lessons, we organise regular cultural events and make a point of bringing culture into your classroom. 

Literature, wine tastings, talks, film, patisserie workshops, specialist workshops, games, art exhibition and children activities too.

Another opportunity to practice your French!

Onsite and online learning

We are located in Central North Oxford for ease of access from North Oxford, Jericho, Summertown, Central Oxford and Oxfordshire. Our comfortable classrooms, well equipped with the latest technology, will ensure that you have a pleasant experience.

The team is ready to welcome you in a warm, comfortable and convivial environment.
