I am a qualified and experienced native French teacher  who specialises in Private and Corporate French tuition in the Leicester and Loughborough area. 


I also offer English to French TranslationInterpretingProofreading as well as Transcription services. 




"This course is an introduction to the French language and way of life for the purpose of practical communication. Whether you are studying for travelling, working abroad or with foreign companies the French Beginners course will enable you to communicate confidently, socialise and not feel out of place in the country you are visiting".



"You will learn new structures and vocabulary around different topics to extend your range of expression in this highly communicative course. You will build on and advance your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills as well as cover the main points in French grammar. This course will enable you to communicate with more variation and fluency, so you feel confident in most everyday situations with French native speakers".



"Wanting to practise or brush up your French? I run a fun and friendly French Conversation group class for intermediate to advanced level learners. You can join in anytime"


In-company language training  for groups and individuals delivered in your offices at times to suit you.

"I use an interactive method of teaching based on learning by practising. That means that grammar is covered as much as possible by using practical situations, so speaking and actively using the language is central".  


"Private tuition on your own, or with friends or classmates in a small group, means your tutor can spend more time with you and answer your individual needs. I will be able to compliment any existing tuition you might be doing and can help with homework and address specific weaknesses." 



"Thank you for all the work you did with me to improve my French, with your help I managed to get a B grade and secure my place to study History at Newcastle Uni..." Lorin Everall  

"Having studied French and Italian at university, and having let them get very rusty indeed ever since, I decided to take some private French lessons to brush up a bit. I found Marie-France, have been a student of her's for the past few months, and have seen my language skills and confidence improve in leaps and bounds. Lessons are fun, relaxed, very informative - covering all sorts of different topics, and invaluable in improving your language skills. In my experience, conversations with a native speaker is really the only way to improve in any language. Thanks Marie-France! " Helen Garratt

"We had lessons with Marie-France for about a year, and thoroughly enjoyed them. They were interesting, fun as well as thought-provoking, and we learnt a great deal. She was expert at tailoring lessons to our interests and ability. We thoroughly recommend her. Thanks Marie-France." Debbie and Andy 

"I wanted to thank you for all the work and support towards my A level. I got an A (!!) with 100% in units 2 & 3! So being driven mad by Camus was worth it in the end!" Andy Chapman
