French Revision Modules
High quality French Leaving Cert revision course divided into modules. You will find in these videos and notes all you need to improve your written exam and your grammar.
I feel well equipped after using these modules and they have really helped with my confidence going into the Leaving Cert.
Solenn was an excellent teacher and because she is a native French speaker I had a great opportunity to learn extra phrases and sayings that really boosted my results.
I bought the revision modules for my daughter as she was struggling with certain aspects of the French exam. These modules are a very affordable way to prepare.

“We wanted to thank you for the French language school that our daughter Orla attended. She had a fantastic time and took enormous deep joy from the week – declaring it the best camp ever, of any year, in any place. You and your family have something really good going on there and we thank you for letting us dip into it”
