French 1-to-1 General

These French lessons fit a broader spectrum, and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of French culture and those who just wish to pass a particular French exam.

French 1-to-1 Business

Those who would benefit the most from these French tutorials are those who feel they need to learn French to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail French, as well as survival French should a visit to the country be necessary.

French Closed Group Lessons

If there are 2 or more of you with the same level of French, the same targets within the language, and be able to study at the same time and location, then you'll be happy to know that these French lessons can also be made available for Two-to-One French Lessons or Small Group In-Company French Lessons. Listen & Learn do not generally recommend classes of more than 6-8 people, although Taster lessons in French can run with up to 12 people. Bookings must be made for all participants at the same time.
