Olala ! French courses in Chamonix




Je ne veux pas parler français comme une vache espagnole!

Une vache espagnole : a spanish cow.

To speak a language "comme une vache espagnole" means... to speak the language very badly. 

je veux = I want  

je ne veux pas = I do not want

 Tu veux ou tu veux pas ?

You want to improve your french, prepare a examination, meet professional requirements, or simply enhance your personal life ? Whatever your reasons are, we all know that the pleasure in learning leads to greater retention and more success for everyone… (but pleasure and fun in learning doesn't mean infantilization of students !) 


 In an informal and friendly atmosphere,  providing  an ideal learning environment, I really care about your well-being, your  progression and your enjoyment. When you arrive you will instantly feel at home.


 In private lessons or very small groups, we work together as a team . 

Nothing is magic : active learning and interaction are the core !


The activities cross skills boundaries :  speaking, listening, writing, reading,   
as well as using authentic documents : radio, TV, newspapers ...


"Communication  skills ", of course it's the goal !

Good communication means good structure and good structure means...  grammar !

Forget the myth that French grammar is very complicate ! It depends on the way it's explained.

it's funny to see students who "just wanted  to speak" - as if it was possible to avoid grammar - discovering how interesting  it is ! 


Courses are always tailor-made, based on your specific needs and wishes


Self confidence will drive you faster to independance... 


We follow the recommendations of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for languages) which describes what a learner, at each level, is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing.


Olala ! is very committed to the development of intercultural skills which are more necessary than ever in an era where everything is happening internationally.


I can prepare you for the examinations of French DALF / DELF , which open doors to studies and work in France.

I also prepare young students in the British educational system to pass their French GCSE and A level.
