French is spoken by approximately 450 million people worldwide, either as a native or a second language. It is an official language in 28 countries, most of which form what is called in French La Francophonie, the community of French-speaking nations. The language is widely used in Quebec, Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as being an official language of all United Nations agencies and a large number of international organisations, making it a truly global language.

Our beginners French classes are suitable for people who have no prior knowledge of the French language, while subsequent courses progressively increase the complexity of language concepts. If you want to learn to speak French, our French courses are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn French language and culture.
