French lessons with Ruth Rose 


I have been a private French tutor for more than 10 years in Sidmouth, East Devon. I love the French language and I love teaching it - believing everyone can learn and enjoy a foreign language.

My classes are for adults at all levels – in groups and individually.

I also provide extra tuition for secondary school students who are preparing for French exams at GCSE, AS and A2 levels.


Why do adults learn French?

  • maybe you travel to France and / or have French friends or family
  • you might feel embarrassed at having to ask ‘Parlez-vous anglais?’
  • perhaps you already have some French and you wish you could join in properly with conversations
  • it could be you like to meet new people in a friendly group
  • you relish a challenge and want to exercise your memory

These are amongst the reasons why about 80 adults from the Sidmouth area, who come to my classes, tell me they want to learn French.
