I'm now well into my second lot of '10-course-parcels' purchases at a discount and I can easily see myself as a life-time member of 'The French Room' - This does not mean that I cannot imagine myself ever progressing; not at all! In fact, I feel much more confident speaking French since first joining last October, after many years of dabbling in the language. The reason why a I am likely to be a life-time member is that the course is just so much fun. Ellie is one of the most gifted teachers I have ever come across. She has a deep knowledge of her subject with the ability to impart it well to her students, sprinkled with a goodly portion of humour. Thursday mornings have become one of the highlights of the week and I am confident that the other members of our friendly little group feel the same. Keep up the good work, Lillie!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Great teacher and I have found that learning with others has been really beneficial so far. I also think the courses are good value for money and I highly recommend.

A really enjoyable community of french speakers, with lots of opportunities to enjoy aspects of french culture in different ways, virtually and in real life. Ellie is a really engaging teacher and very adaptable to your way of learning and challenges you to get the most out of the classes.

My self and my wife decided to learn French after going on a few holidays. The idea was to be comfortable speaking, not only when in the restaurants or tourist areas but in general conversation as well. Ellie has tailored our lessons to our requirements and makes learning a pleasure, we are now able to talk to our French friends easily and with them understanding what we are saying without going to the translator apps! Thank you Ellie.

Ellie is an excellent affirming teacher. My husband and I have never felt discouraged. Our lessons in a group setting, now on zoom, are enjoyable. Now when we go to France people reply to us in French!

Learning French has been one of my big ambitions for such a long time. I have tried many different routes but for the first time feel that I am making real progress. As other reviewers have said, this is because Ellie makes lessons challenging but tailored and fun. Thanks The French Room!

Ellie has an amazing way of breaking down language in a way that it can be learned, retained and used in context. She has tailored our sessions to my needs and uses a variety of resources. Language can be very daunting at first but I see a clear path for progress. Ellie has the perfect balance of loveliness while keeping us focussed and is wonderfully encouraging. I imagine she has a rather large gin collection at home to help remedy the level of patience she has to have with me. I highly recommend The French Room (as it was to me).

I've been a part of the French Room since September. I was working as a trainee teacher with Ellie, and I couldn't thank her enough for offering this opportunity in teaching. We have good students who are devoted and we always try to have a good time learning French with activities, nice group and big smile. I'm sad to say I'm leaving this school and the amazing people who are a part of it. I'll always remember The French Room as a good environment to learn and to work in.

Classes with Ellie are challenging, varied and fun. She tailors her approach to the learning style of the individual, and I’m seeing real progress, particularly in my listening and speaking skills. Highly recommended.

I am enjoying French so much more than I ever did in the past. I am having one to one lessons and Ellie teaches in a way that is fun yet easy to remember. I am beginning to gain the confidence I need to use speak French more when I am on holiday.

Where are you starting from?

You can check your French level below.

We have classes from beginner through to fluent speaker.

If you are at Level 1 you are a complete beginner or have had a big gap since you’ve learnt French.

If you are at Level 2 you are off the blocks with your French and starting to get to grips with how the language works.

If you are at Level 3 you have mastered the basics of the language and you are now ready to start speaking more naturally.

If you are at Level 4 you are an accomplished French speaker and can handle most situations but would like to sound a little bit more French.

If you are at Level 5 you are a fluent French speaker and are looking for ways to keep up your French and explore more the idiosyncrasies of the language.
