I’m delighted to now be offering two small group tuition classes in Broadstairs, at fixed times, one for GCSE students (French) and the other a conversation class for adults wishing to improve their French.

Small group tuition provides a great alternative or supplement to my bespoke one-to-one tuition service. There will be a maximum of ten students per class, ideal for learning which is personalised but allows for plenty of conversation practice and fun interaction with other learners.

You’ll find more information on both classes below, but do also feel free to contact me (Amanda) on 07721 972700 or by email at amanda@amandatamsin.eu and I will be happy to answer your questions.   Advance bookings are essential to ensure that a place is available.

These small group classes are are held on Fridays between 4:15pm and 5:15pm and will run through term-time. The venue is a lovely room in the Queens Road Baptist Church in Broadstairs.

We will cover GCSE French topics in creative ways, taking in all four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as exam practice.  Homework will be provided and marked each week.  Price per session:  £12 (or £10 per session for block bookings over a term).

French Conversation Class for Adults

French small group conversation classes for adults are held on Tuesdays between 7pm and 8pm, also at the Queens Road Baptist Church in Broadstairs.  Feel free to join these relaxed classes whenever you like.  However due to limited spaces, please book sessions in advance.  *Please note that there is no class on Tuesday 19th March, but that the class will resume on 26th March as usual.

These tutorials are ideal for adults who know a little French (i.e. from their travels or from having attended a beginners course in the past).  Emphasis will be on language learning for fun and a new cultural topic will be covered each week.

Differentiated support will be provided for your conversation practice through a variety of resources, along with authentic texts.

I will be tutoring in these sessions as usual, although they will also feature Frédéric (originating from both Paris and Burgundy!).  He’ll be happy to further support you with your learning and conversation practice.  Price per session:  £9 (or £8 for a block booking of four).  Your first session is Free (book in advance).  Refreshments are provided.
