For teenagers

Is your teenager struggling with French? Don’t wait until they feel overwhelmed and pressured with exams. We provide grinds for teenagers, from 2nd year to 6th year, including preparation for Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate.

The maximum number of students per class is 6. This allows each student to get individual attention and classes tailored to their needs. They will also feel more confident to speak French, and ask any questions they could have.

What makes the difference? We are native French teachers, as well as examiners, which is a huge benefit for students!

Exam preparation

For the preparation to the exams, we will work on both written and oral skills, complementing their schoolwork preparation.

We will focus on the main elements of the written paper, helping the student to develop techniques to improve their listening and reading comprehension skills, as well as providing vocabulary to deal confidently with written topics.

We will also focus on the oral exam, and help the student build their confidence and fluency in the different topics they are likely to encounter. The course includes a one-to-one mock oral exam.

No time for weekly grinds? We also run intensive courses during school break. Our next course is a 1-day French Leaving Cert Oral Preparation, on March 2nd. More info & booking here.

What our students said about us:

I just wanted to say thank you, I really enjoyed the camp. In fact I wish it were longer! Everything was explained and taught really well and I learned so much.  I liked the way the camp was exam focused and I got great practice with my oral and written pieces.  I’m much more confident and motivated to study my French now. Sofia

My daughter’s vocabulary and her confidence in speaking really improved with the classes. Thank you.  Joke

M. got 96% in her French Oral exam. The work she did with you in 5th year gave her a great headstart! Bravo! Kathryn

My daughter has found the class to be extremely benefitial and thought that the way the class was taught worked really well. And looks forward to continuing next year! Carmel

Found it very helpful and increased her understanding in French dramatically! Deirdre

After a long period of illness I had very little time to prepare for my French Leaving Cert exam, but Caroline gave me confidence in speaking French and inspired me to perform at my very best. Her lessons were excellent: hard work but fun. Thanks to her, my French result was one of my best grades and I got the points I needed. Tara
