FAQs - Learning with The French Room

Will my course be with a live tutor?

Yes, all your learning with The French Room is in person with a tutor. These are live classes just as they would be if you came tous in person. The classes are tailored to you personally, to the group or for your own shared class. They are full of variety and work on all aspects of the French language at a pace that suits you.

How long is the course?

At The French Room we have students who have been learning with us for over 4 years and others who dip in and out. You are free to choose how, when and with who you learn. We don't run courses as such, rather we have 5 levels and you work at your French at that level until you are ready to move up.

Our class pass and single class purchase system means that you can choose to have as many or as few hours of teaching as you wish.

The class pass buys you 10 hours of your chosen lesson type and saves you £25 over 10 hours or you can just pay as you go.

How long will it take me to learn French? (Read about Fred and Lesley's journey to fluency)

Typically students taking an hour a week, can expect to move up a level in their French at the end of their first year.

But in reality you start knowing some to get by within 20 hours and then the rest is just building on your knowledge.

I did some French at school what level will I be at?

You might just be a bit surprised how much of your school French you can remember as you start to unlock it.

As a rule of thumb, if you did French to O-level or GCSE level , you will likely be at a level 2 or 3 at The French Room.

If you did A-level, you will probably want to join us at level 3 or level 4.

For those who have studied French at university or lived in France, we would recommend level 4 or 5.

I don't have Zoom. Can I still have classes online?

We find Zoom to be most comfortable way to learn with us online. If you are joining a group class then you will need to download Zoom to come to a lesson.

If you are having private classes or shared classes with your friends and family, we could look at other options, although we have yet to find a system that works as well as Zoom.

Is there a course book?

Yes. We recommend various course books for our different levels.

How do I book into a class?

You can book your class online either using a class pass or as a single session. You will receive a confirmation email with all the details of the class that you have booked and be able to join us easily online.

What is The French Room Premium and how can I get access?

This is a premium extra that we offer to all our students to help support your learning. When you start learning with us, we will set you up with your membership and then you can login and use all our resources for free.
