“Thank you Astrid for a very enjoyable and valuable course.  It really helped me to refresh my memory of French O level from a few decades ago.  I can now string a sentence together again instead of blundering through ‘Franglaise’. I look forward to using my new-found skills with much more confidence on my next trip to France.”        – Liz


“I have recently completed a 4 week conversation course with Astrid with a group of friends.
Astrid has an extremely gentle and encouraging manner about her which makes it easy to ‘have a go’ without any of the feelings that you may remember form French lessons at school!
Over the 4 weeks we covered all the basics we would need if we were travelling to France on holiday or business, but also that little bit more.
For example, it was not only being able to book a table at a restaurant, but asking if we could sit near the window.
Astrid also shares lots of colloquialisms and french expressions so you aren’t restricted to text book french.
If you are just beginning or already know some French and want to improve your vocal and style, Astrid offers the perfect lessons for all.”       – Emily


“I attended four sessions of French Conversation lessons with Astrid in December last year.  The topics and general conversation were regularly well-chosen and very relevant to conversational needs.   We were a group of three friends from our children’s school and learnt about each other as well absorbing new French vocabulary and phrases.  I would highly recommend Astrid as a teacher.   She has a very sunny countenance and made the sessions informative and enjoyable.”       – Catherine Harry


“I very much enjoyed the classes and found your style of  teaching relaxed and very conducive to good learning. The focus on conversations relevant to our Industry was a real bonus.”         – Paula
