We offer the opportunity to everyone learning French through LFI programmes to have a French correspondant from the South of France. Children, teenagers, adults get to learn about French culture and practise their language skills through this cultural exchange.

All year round, we send emails, cards or we organise Skype sessions with the French correspondants in Toulouse. This facility is included in all our courses.

Fun French for kids

Children can enrol from the age of 3 and we teach simple language vocabulary and structures in a fun and friendly environment in small groups of 8 children maximum. It allows each child to participate and to get individual attention from the teacher.

We believe that learning languages is enriching, fun and stimulates children development. We teach French communication skills and expression through songs, rhymes, games, arts and crafts, and playgroup activities.
