French on Wheels: French lessons in your own home!

A French pre-school activity and tutoring service where we come to you!

Mobile French language services

Allons Enfants is a French language workshop and tuition service that provides the best quality French language tuition services in the Bay. We come to you, saving you the time, expense and hassle of travelling to a lesson. We provide an introduction to French language for Pre-School children aged from 0 to 5 years old, and Primary school children aged from 6 to 11. We teach Secondary School children, provide sessions for Adult conversation and also book tutoring for GCSE, A level and Undergraduate exams.

We cover Torbay and parts of South Devon, but can travel further by request and prior arrangement.

Our mission is to provide families in the Torbay area with affordable high quality educational options for children, teenagers and adults. Our French language teaching programmes are especially tailored to everyone's needs.

This project is not only about French language and cultures of Francophone countries, it is also about learning a new set of core values: to be curious about other traditions and to accept different languages and cultures. We have 3 options to choose from.

Option Bleue - "French for Pre-School and Primary School children"

For children aged from 0 to 6 years old, I include songs, games, dance and cookery within the learning programme to stimulate and engage the children.

For children aged from 6 to 11 years old, we step up the learning to match their personal interests.

All these activities allow the child's knowledge to build organically and naturally.

The sessions are carefully planned and structured to expose the children to the right amount, and to the appropriate level of new content for their age. Across the weeks they build up their learning of basic vocabulary such as numbers, letters, animals, colour, food and parts of the body. We also include seasonal holiday themes to further excite and inspire the children.

Reading and writing is kept to a minimum in this option because we mainly focus on listening and speaking using techniques children can easily relate to and that will keep their attention.

Option Blanche - "French for Secondary School Students and Adult conversation"

This option is geared for beginners and improvers. Starting French at Secondary School level can be a daunting experience and students often need a boost into learning the language. In a relaxed and homely atmosphere we practice the four skills needed through meaningful activities close to their own interests. Under a current Pop Culture landscape using topics such as Music, Fashion, Celebrity gossip or Social Media we get them involved in their own learning.

For the adults we focus on Holiday conversation, or any topic our clients wish to improve on. We also have pancake making and French cinema sessions.

Option Rouge - "French for Exams"

Similar to the Option Bleue and Blanche we can come to your own home and deliver sessions especially geared towards your Exams. We will customise our sessions to your Exam Board and your individual needs. We can also travel to the student's school or the student can come to the Willows. The choice is yours.
