For all your French Matters


French Conversation Groups

Planning to go across the Channel this year?
Want to get to know France (and the French...) better?
Maybe you have property there but can't communicate with the neighbours, YET?
Or you simply want to brush up rusty skills?...


This is NOT school, there is no exam at the end...
...but many fun-filled activities in French and a good time among friends.

Mondays 10-11am - New Milton, St Mary Magdalene Church Hall

Mondays 2-3pm - Charminster, Trinity United Reformed Church

Tuesdays 10-11am - Ringwood, Trinity Church Centre

Tuesdays 2-3pm - Christchurch, St Catherine's Hill Community Centre

Thursdays 10-11am - Boscombe, Iford United Reformed Church

Fridays 3-4pm - Canford Cliffs, Village Hall  

Other groups hopefully starting soon....

Private Tuition

Completely tailored to your needs, lessons take place in your own home.

Whatever you want to achieve:

Know basic French in order to “get by” on your next holiday
Improve conversational skills and pronunciation
Prepare for exams
Or simply have fun!

... and yes, we will cover some grammar!
But don't worry, we'll do it in a very practical way, focusing on your abilities and personal needs.


Group Tuition

Typical group size is 6 adults

Get a few friends together for fun and learn French at the same pace.

Why not have cheese & biscuits and a glass of wine while we chat?...

Lessons are prepared after reviewing the members' needs and aspirations.

Whatever your goals...


Overseas Property Owners' Document Translation

You own property in France, or are in the process of buying there?

Have you received or do you regularly receive documents from

the bank,

the estate agent,

the notary,

the town hall / the mayor,

the removal company,

the builders,

the utility companies,

the taxman,

or still the local authorities...

Are you not able to understand them?

DO NOT second guess it... You could make costly mistakes.

I can help you with quick turnaround translations.

I will also make phone calls on your behalf to all your French administrative contacts.

With a background in the construction industry, I can even help you source local contractors and project manage their works.
