At Formation Espoir Nature our motto is ‘Learning should be fun‘. That doesn’t mean that we don’t take your training serious – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. We take onboard our customer feedback and continually review and revise the structure, content and flexibility of our training. Our client’s have told us that they have their own ways of learning, such as conversational classes, repetition, and homework! That’s why you decide what you want to learn and how.
Personalised French lessons
Our language courses, like our other training modules, are individually tailored to help you achieve your personal or business goals. After your initial assessment to determine your level of French, we jointly agree the best way for you to learn. We can help improve your knowledge of the language and culture using a combination of books, music, conversation, etc. And together we can find interesting topics to discuss, so you can build up your French skills quickly and easily.

At present all our lessons are online, via Google Meets, WhatsApp or Messenger. We offer group and 1-2-1 sessions of 30 minutes to an hour. Any longer than that and generally we find that students lose a little focus But if you would prefer a longer lesson, then we’ll be happy to discuss different options. The time, day and length of your lessons is important, and your schedule is outlined as soon as possible. That way you can arrange lessons around your work and family time, so you – hopefully – have fewer distractions.
Alternatively, if you want to improve your English, then our fully trained, professional instructors are waiting for your call.
Unless you tell us you are a absolute beginner, we will determine your level of French by asking you to complete a short, online assessment. It consists of several grammar, vocabulary and comprehension questions. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers. It’s simply a way for us to understand how much you know, and at what level we start to prepare and present your French training.
At regular stages throughout your training you will have similar assessments to monitor your progress. But if at any point you have any questions, or you want to repeat a topic or exercise, you only have to ask.
If you have a website for your French registered business and it’s only in English, you are potentially missing out on a huge French market. More importantly, are you aware of the French Law that states that advertising in France should be in French?
If you are comfortable with your level of written French, then you could translate your website yourself. But if you are not, why not use your funding to have your site content translated by a native French speaker?
Whether you use social media advertising, flyers or other types of media, it will fall under Toubon Law. We can help you translate them, and can even offer advice on the best places to promote your business to French customers.
At least 1 in every 10 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia. It’s a lifelong problem that can present daily challenges, especially if you are a small business owner. Which is why we are frequently asked to review website and social media content before it’s published. If you feel this service would be useful when you are creating a new website, writing a blog, or preparing an advertising campaign, ask us for more details.
It’s all part of the comprehensive language training and services that we offer. And all of these can be fully covered by your funding and completely free.
