The classes are taught by Ruth Brannam, who is a fully qualified French Language teacher. Ruth is a fluent French speaker and has been teaching adults at The Old School in St Colomb de Lauzun since September 2017. She has been teaching six classes of interested adult learners each week and the feedback from all learners has been fantastic; all are progressing well, with increased confidence and desire to put their improved skills into practice.

A few words from Ruth: "I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to all adults who would like to learn French - beginners, intermediates and advanced. Since my first French class at the age of nine, I have always loved languages. I studied for my degree at Oxford University in French and German, and later I learned Russian while working for the British government. I have been a teacher of modern languages (French, German and Russian) for almost twenty years. Before moving to France, I worked in two English schools: in the first I taught young people between 14-18 years, and in the second young people between 10-13 years old. I also give private lessons to individuals, both adults and children, which I thoroughly enjoy".

Classes are currently being taught via a weekly email package of activities covering the skills of Listening, Reading and Writing. Students are invited to send their work to Ruth for feedback but may otherwise work at their own pace.

Fees are €9 per class, with the additional annual admin fee of €25 per family.
There is a maximum of 8 students per class, which ensures that the quality of teaching and learning remains high and personal to the individual.
