French for Schools

Workshops for your school and activities for French teachers in Oxford.

Our mission is to promote French Language and its cultures in Oxford and the surrounding area. What better way than to support the great work MFL teachers do in their classrooms every day? We offer ready-made workshops and activities for all levels, as well as custom-made workshops for schools, in our premises or at your school. For publicly funded and independent schools.

French teachers are encouraged to share the information about our A-level scholarship with their 6th Form pupils.

Certifications DELF

For yourself or for your students! The DELF, DALF and DELF Junior are official French proficiency diplomas, for adult students (DELF or DALF), and for teenagers (DELF Junior for 12-17yo). They certify the same CEFR levels (A1 to C2) but with different topics. No prior test or certification is needed, and your results are valid for life!

It is a great opportunity for your students to demonstrate their French language skills, be rewarded for their work at school and get used to sitting exams. Contact us as soon as possible for registration in order to be best prepared for the DELF exams.

    The cheese tasting workshop was much appreciated by our Y6 pupils. They enjoyed answering general questions in French, filling in questionnaires and of course tasting the cheeses. The oral interactivity was great and well supported by digital and paper resources. The whole workshop was pitched at the right level for the end of KS2, stretching the most able but allowing everyone to participate. It allowed for a good review of adjectives and comparative forms. A great cultural and linguistic experience!
