I studied French with Jane for two years and I can recommend her unreservedly. She has a friendly approach and the lessons were always interesting. I particularly enjoyed our discussions concerning politics, economics, history and the people and country of France; these were much more fun than the dry and dusty classes that I remember from my schooldays! My aim was to gain enough fluency to have reasonable conversations when I visited the country, and I was pleased to be able to communicate effectively when on my travels. Jane has high standards which will stand you in good stead – and give the support and encouragement you need to achieve your ambitions.
I have been having French lessons with Jane for around 6 months now and it has been great! I am moving to France shortly and wanted to brush up my high school French, and develop sufficient skills to help me get by in day-to-day life.
Jane has been a very good teacher – very friendly with well-structured lessons. She has supplemented textbook learning with plenty of listening and speaking, to make sure there is good variety in each lesson. She has also provided me with a strong grounding in grammar and writing, which will stand me in good stead for the future. I still have a lot to learn, but I feel much more confident in embarking on my French adventure now!
