Who is behind Rendez-vous français?
I'm Caroline, and I am the one receiving your enquiry! I created the school in 2016, after having taught French in France and Ireland, in primary schools, secondary schools and language schools. I handle all the different aspects of the school: the admin (replying to your emails, enquiries, sending invoices, advertising, managing social media and so on), and I also teach a lot of our classes. Because that is a lot of jobs for one person, it can sometimes take a few days before I get back to you, but I always do 🙂 At the moment, I am on maternity leave, so I am still the one replying to your emails, but Pauline and Claire are the 2 teachers doing the classes, and they are both coming from France!
I want to enrol my child. What happens after I sent my enquiry?
You can send us your enquiry by email, or through the contact form. Once I receive it, I will email you back with all the details of the course that suits your child. I will also send you the link to our online registration form, and payment details. Because we teach very small groups, both need to be filled out / made for the space to be secured. You will then receive a payment confirmation, and we look forward to seeing your child on the first class!
I am an adult and I want to start learning French. What should I do?
First of all, it is a great idea!
If you are a complete beginner (and I insist on "complete" -> you have never learnt French before. Not even 30 years ago), just contact me through the contact form or by email : let me know what you are looking for. You can also share your motivation for learning French, as it can help us know if a group class or a one to one is more suitable. I will email you back with the details of the course that will suit you.
If you have learnt French before, you need to take our assessment test here! Once I receive your answers, I'll have a good idea of what your level is, and will send you the details of the course that will suit you best. If it works for you, parfait ! You can sign up using the link in my email, and make your payment. Your French adventure has started!
Why should I sign up to your classes?
Our classes are for you if :
- You are looking for classes taught by native teachers. All our teachers come from France, and will share with you not only their language, but also their culture, fun facts and cultural differences: all these little things that make the classes even more interesting, especially if you are thinking of moving to France, or holidaying there!
- You are looking for a fun and relaxed class: forget about those boring French classes in secondary school. At Rendez-vous français, we firmly believe that you learn better when you're having fun! Yes, even with these annoying irregular verbs. If you are feeling a bit shy, or nervous, these are the perfect classes for you!
- You want to be able to speak French, straight away! From the very first class, you will be speaking French! Our objective is to teach you how to speak and converse in everyday situations. You won't learn how to write a French essay (unless you want to!). You will learn practical skills, such as understanding that menu in a restaurant, asking for information, complaining because there is no hot water in your Airbnb, and many other things!
Want to give it a try? Take our assessment test, and we'll get back to you with all the details 🙂
Do you have online classes?
Most of our classes take place in our classroom, in Navan town centre (Co. Meath). However we do have a few online classes for adults : if they match your level, you can definitely join them from anywhere in the world!
We don't teach online classes for children, or teenagers, as we believe that they need face to face interaction to learn best.
