Learn French with
Lingua Forme

Is learning French on your bucket list?

Or is your teenager struggling with their French exams at school?

I’m passionate about speaking French – for me it’s a true joy. And I’d love to help you brush up your conversation skills too. Join me for some oral ping pong,  untangle some translations or refine your French reading skills.

On y va – let’s go!

But first, let me tell you a little bit more about how, and who, l teach.

My fabulous French lessons are available to anyone (really!). Whether I’m helping students with their GCSE and A levels or starting from scratch with beginners, encouraging improvers or polishing up advanced learners, my approach to French and learning remains the same – passionate and fun.

I’m non-accredited which means I can tailor all my classes to your needs and there’s very little paperwork to contend with!

Even though the pesky Coronavirus has called STOP to seeing my wonderful students in full three dimensions I’ve whipped up the technology and resources to deliver them online instead. It’s working perfectly and I provide regular resources and audio files to keep learning fresh, fun and foolproof.

I'm a beginner I'm advanced

What people say about us:

“Barbara always goes the extra mile and more” : Mavis, Post Beginners Group

“Learners benefit from Barbara’s ongoing personal professional development in how she helps adults to learn. Passionate about the language and culture of France, she makes learning for me a constructive experience, at an affordable cost.” : Jan, Improvers Group

“My personal aim was to achieve more in this language than I have ever done before (2 years at school aged 11&12).  So far I HAVE achieved this and now I’d like to return to France next year and have an actual conversation en français” : Carolyn Improvers Group

Apprendre le français

We run classes each week across the following locations.

How we teach:

One to one teaching – you have me and my passion for French all to yourself. Whether you’re working towards GCSEs or A levels or simply improving your conversation skills, this is the best and most intense form of French teaching.

Group French teaching – because learning is always more fun with friends – even those you haven’t met yet. Whether we’re starting from scratch or brushing up for exams, we’ll support each other, learn together and have fun along the way.

Corporate French teaching – why not expand the skill set of your team with fun and useful lessons in French. Whether they need to speak French for their jobs or you’re looking for ideas for team building days, get in touch to find out more.


Who we teach:

Adults – you’re never too old to learn a new skill or dust the cobwebs off your French dictionary. Being able to chat to the locals on holidays shows respect for their culture and can open the door on so many exciting opportunities that you might otherwise miss. Learn the basics, brush up your conversational skills or take your linguistic learning to a new level. Whatever your learning needs, I’ll lend my passion, experience and French language skills to meet your goals.

GCSE/A Level French – It’s never been more important to have a good language qualification with many of the best universities demanding a pass at GCSE. Help your teenager achieve the best advantage with French language tutoring from Lingua Forme.
