Adult Language Classes

Wednesday, 20 September 2017


Dear Parents, Guardians and Adult Learners,

Have you ever thought of learning another language? Language skills not only help you communicate whilst on holiday abroad but one of our courses might enable you to help your daughter with that French homework!

We are delighted to be able to offer you again a range of day time adult classes in French (Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced and Conversation).

French Classes are delivered in one and a half hour lessons over 30 weeks and cost £375. This includes tuition and as well as certificates. We accept termly payments if you enrol for the 30 weeks’ course. Please be aware that classes can only go ahead if numbers are viable as we are no longer in a position to subsidise classes and have therefore had to adjust our charges slightly.

To help you decide we offer a taster week with lessons commencing on Monday 25th September 2017. This will be a good opportunity for you to discuss your level with your teacher.

You need not be a Presdales parent to embark on any of our courses. This is open to all members of the public. Everybody is very welcome!
The 30 lessons follow the school calendar and are time-tabled as follows:
