French


What is that mysterious je ne sais quoi that makes French so enjoyable to learn? The ability to communicate without a word of English? Understanding the way that languages work? Or simply wandering around the streets of Paris, looking cool and reading Baudelaire?

Of course, it’s a long but rewarding journey from ordering un café to watching Amélie sans subtitles, but Doddle French is there to guide your students every step of the way.
