HobbiesThe Little French Maison is a boutique, international language school, offering online French classes for individuals, private groups, and public groups in English.
Our school is directed by a small group of teachers, offering classes and tuition for all ages, abilities, and levels.
At the Little French Maison, we believe in Language for Life. Our success is thanks to the best, dedicated teachers, a high quality curriculum, and endless student support. Whether online or in person, our lessons take place in a friendly and comfortable environment, and we aim to make classes exciting, focussed, and accessible to everyone.
Our Online Lessons
- We offer three types of lessons to students:
- Private individual classes or tuition for children and adults.
- Private group classes or tuition for adults.
- Public group classes for adults (in addition travel French, Medical French, and work French).
Fees start from $35/hour for conversation classes and $25/half hour for children's classes.
Our private and public group classes are offered at a lower rate to individual lessons, being both economical and great for a lively class environment!
Why study online?
Convenience of time and place - study whenever you want, from wherever you want.
Economical - online classes are cheaper than a formal classroom setting, and save time and money off travel.
Documentation - all of your work and classroom activity is documented for your perusal after class. Never lose a note, worksheet, or assignment, as they’re all uploaded to our e-learning database.
Meet other students and make friends from all over the world - we have students from Australia, Asia, The United States, and Europe!
Accessibility - for those in remote areas or difficult to reach locations, where finding quality education may be a struggle.
