Learn French

Live online group courses

Learn French with a professional teacher in the comfort of your own home or workplace. Ideal if you often holiday in France or have property in France.

We run small groups of up to eight people of similar ability, guaranteeing good progress. Generally, we run group French courses from beginner up to advanced levels. Our group language courses consist of a weekly 90-minute class that runs in conjunction with the school terms:

  • September to December
  • January to March
  • April to July

Our general group courses follow a timetable. However, you also have the option to set up a private group with family and friends where you can set your own day and time.

See the latest groups with available levels and days and times, below. We publish a new group timetable in good time before the start of each term. Please feel free to register your interest at any time – it’s never too soon or too late.

Online French group courses
Autumn term 2024

We're currently not running an online group due to lack of demand but should you be interested in joining an Online French group (any level), please contact us so that we can add you onto the waiting list.

Course content

Our group courses incorporate all the elements of the language: speaking, listening, reading and writing. The course will focus on building your conversational skills as well as developing your listening skills, knowledge of grammar and cultural understanding with the help of a course book.

We also offer one-to-one or one-to-two tuition if you prefer a more intensive and personalised approach.

Unsure of your level?

Read our guide to language proficiency levels to get an idea of your proficiency level.

This guide explains the progressive levels of proficiency. To better understand your own proficiency level, get in touch with us to arrange either a free consultation or a more in-depth initial assessment.

Free consultation

Book a free consultation. The consultation will take about 30 minutes. Our language consultant will recommend the appropriate course for you based on your learning history, discuss your objectives and goals, and answer any questions you may have.

Initial assessment

Or you can opt for a more in-depth initial assessment. In a no-obligation initial 60-minute assessment – charged at £40 – you can meet your teacher, ask questions and get an impression of our teaching methods. The language teacher will assess your level of ability and help you define your learning goals so that we can recommend a language programme that will work for you. If you’re a complete beginner, the assessment will also set some realistic learning objectives and you can get a feel for what language learning is all about.

Trial class

There’s no obligation to book a course once you’ve had your initial assessment. If you decide to go ahead the first lesson takes the form of a trial class. You don’t commit to a course at this stage. You get to meet your teacher and fellow students and ascertain whether the level is suitable. If you wish to continue for the rest of the term after the trial lesson, we will then ask you for full payment of £315 for the 12-week term for courses.

I have over 10 years of experience as a French teacher and joined the MLC in 2013. Previously I worked as a teaching assistant in Peru and helped children at primary and secondary levels to learn English and French. I have always had a passion for languages and for discovering different cultures. I speak fluent English, Spanish and learned Arabic for 5 years. I studied Ibero-American civilisation at the Sorbonne university in Paris where I obtained a degree. I teach French to all levels, in the private and corporate sectors. I love teaching, there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing how fast your students progress and achieve excellent results. Teaching and personal interaction in one-to-one or small groups are of great value to me! I am very enthusiastic, passionate, funny, creative and sociable. I am a nature lover and love photography in my spare time. I am looking forward to pursuing this amazing experience with you if you are willing to immerse yourself in a French journey with me.
