French Language Tuition in Brighton

L'Image Française specialises in the teaching of general conversational French at all levels.


In addition to providing classes in business French, preparation for general and specialised examinations such as the officially recognised DELF (Diplôme d’études en langue française) can also be provided.

I started my business 15 years ago in London with a strong emphasis on “in company” tuition. Teaching individuals and groups at their workplace as part of an employer's inhouse training scheme. Some of my key accounts were Elf (now Total), Société Générale and Bausch & Lomb. I have recently moved my business activities to Brighton and Hove where I now live.

I specialise in teaching professionals in connection with their work, training them to be able to read, write and converse in their specific business environments. I have particular expertise in the legal and financial services sectors.

With some students, tuition is geared to supporting them moving to a French speaking country. At other times, I provide tuition to individuals who simply have a personal interest in learning (or re-learning) the language for their own development, holiday & travel needs or revitalising their school or college study.

Virginie is fantastic. She is always flexible and welcoming and we have come on leaps and bounds!

All classes are tailored to meet the needs, goals and personal expectations of each individual student. Teaching material is provided throughout using a wide range printed material, audio recordings, images and video where appropriate.

Lessons can be given at the student's work place, their home or at my premises depending on the time chosen. L'Image Française requires that each student/group/scheme commit to a minimum of 10 hours. Fees are £25 per hour for oneto- one lessons all inclusive (material, travel costs etc.). The fee for a group of two people is £35 per hour (£17.50 per person) and £45 per hour (£15 per person) for a group of three people. In the event of a lesson cancellation, 24 hours notice is required.

Every course of lessons is preceded by an initial (free) assessment. This session allows current language level to be determined. Needs are discussed and objectives agreed. The lesson programme is then determined and schedules set.

Thank you for your interest in my services.
