From the moment I made contact with Amanda, she was very accommodating and with very short notice, she was able to arrange a course in my own home and suited to my needs. Her choice of Laura as my teacher was excellent. I looked forward each day to my 1.5 hours lesson and the homework that followed. Laura is obviously very passionate about the French language, and was able to answer all my questions. She used creative and interesting material and created a very personalised program based on my level of French and my interests.”  – Julie Englert, Australia

After two years of study, my knowledge of French grammar was quite good, but I was having trouble with conversation, and understanding French TV. I wanted to get into active conversation with someone who was skilled enough to help me with everyday pronunciation and phrases. I was impressed that Amanda , the principal of French Connections,was able to find a qualified French teacher, who could quickly adapt to my needs – and with just 4 weeks notice! Amanda clearly understood what I wanted – basically, to tailor a course of instruction to my needs, rather than following a set curriculum – and delivered. Not only did the course strengthen my conversation skills, I was able to learn lots about how French society works, and discuss the problems and issues facing French people. Our teacher, Laura, was just brilliant at this – and had the happy knack of correcting grammatical errors along the way” – Allen Edwards, Australia

We loved France. I wanted to thank you for the classes.  I liked all of the instructors.  They spoke French almost 100% of the time….that was what I was hoping for.”  — Phil Maas, United States

“The teacher was excellent, very good with children” – Monica Slater, Canada

Just to let you know I enjoyed the course, even as the weakest link in the class I felt I got a lot out of it hopefully I will remember what I learnt ,!! If in the future you are having any more let me know as I would definitely be interested. Thanks again”  – Mairead Kennedy, Irish Ex pat, France

“We enjoyed our stay in an excellent villa and learnt a lot from our French teacher. We thought it was an excellent idea to mix holiday and learning” — Hilary Poley, UK
