Dear Parents,

Would you like your child to enjoy learning French or Spanish but cannot find a language club?

Try our French or Spanish Clubs for Pre-school and Primary School children running online and lead by our dedicated team of experienced native speakers, based in the UK, who have been successfully delivering their 30-minute clubs online since the first lockdown in March 2020.

Developed from our well-established in-school clubs and supported by « le club français », our clubs offer children the opportunity to hear and speak French or Spanish, sing songs, make drawings and enjoy directed online games together in French or Spanish.

Members receive a songbook with soundtracks and access to our « Babelzone » website, for home-learning which is full of many of the engaging on-line videos, stories and games in French and Spanish which we use in our courses. See images of Babelzone's contents in the photo gallery below.


Our daughter Ema has been enjoying French lessons with Emilie for a year and a half now. She's very happy and looks forward to every new lesson. In addition to learning a new language, the French club for our daughter was the only means of socializing with her school friends during lockdown - Marko Borovickic.

My boys have thoroughly enjoyed their online French lessons with Mme Prevost. They were initially reluctant to switch to virtual lessons but they warmed to Mme Prevost and the rest of the group immediately. She has bundles of energy and enthusiasm that is infectious! I’ve been impressed by the time taken to give each child individual feedback after each lesson. I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering it - Natasha, Dukes Soft Furnishings.

My son has been attending these lessons for two years now and is thoroughly enjoying them. The switch from face to face lessons to virtual has been smooth and Mme Prevost is so encouraging and enthusiastic my son still gets lots of enjoyment from it. Derek is great in supplying all the information that you might need, and the individual feedback which they take the time to share is so appreciated and well received it builds my son's confidence enormously and shows how much Mme Prevost clearly cares about their development and enjoyment. Bravo and Merci! - Annie Duthie.
