Your course leaders combine a wealth of teaching experience with a great understanding of the French language and culture as well as a wide knowledge of how to obtain maximum marks in the A Level and Pre-U exams. While all three teachers have taught in top UK schools, all have homes in France and will insist on speaking only French throughout the course.
