Here is a great opportunity for your child to start learning a second language by joining our engaging and entertaining French classes taught through play-based activities (songs, games, role play and story-telling).

We also provide French tutoring classes for high school students beginning French, preparing an exam or planning to undertake an exchange program in a French-speaking country. We finally organise private classes for adults to prepare a trip abroad or simply passionate about the French culture.

Why learning a second language at an early age?

Research studies show that learning an additional language increases children’s self-confidence, critical thinking, creativity and flexibility of the mind. It improves cognitive skills that will help them at school in reading, writing and maths. Finally, it exposes children from a young age to different cultures opening their mind and fostering tolerance and respect to others.

Young children are happy to try out new sounds and words without fearing embarrassment.  They are naturally better than adults to pick up and mimicking different tones, sounds and pronunciations, thus learning to speak a foreign language with a native-like accent.

Our French childhood education programme:

Children learn best when they have fun. Our classes are based on play-like activities such as songs, games, story-telling and role play. We use prompts such as balls, soft toys, puppets, toy-based cooking utensils, food and laminated colour images of objects and animals make learning fun.

Classes are run in small groups fostering participation and interaction. This way, we can also plan our activities based on each pupil best learning style.

Private lessons for older kids of all levels from beginners are also provided.

Our French tutoring and other private classes:

Private classes are tailored to meet high school student’s language goals, interests and needs. They help students to build confidence to understand and speak French, develop everyday French expressions and vocabulary, refine pronunciation and improve grammar.

Private French classes for adults of all levels from beginners are also provided.

We use role play, podcasts, and printed materials and develop our own audio recorded materials to discuss themes of interest that students select based on their objectives and needs.


Alison Smith, Byron Bay, Australia

Helene had created a great learning environment in her home for the children to learn the language of French.

Helene customizes her classes to the individuals’ age, stage and needs for growth, also offering adult lessons, one on one.

For preschool and primary aged group classes, each lesson is well planned incorporating fun activities, props, role play and music. Learning through play is her specialty. 

My daughter loves attending each week. I highly recommend Helene as a teacher. 


Vicky and Esme Liddle, Suffolk Park, Australia

Helene has been teaching my 9 year old daughter for 2 years.   She loves the classes and is so inspired that she regularly asks for homework! 

Helene is a very, very fun teacher I really like the games we play and the songs we sing  . I really, really enjoy her classes cause it’s not listening to a person going on and on. It’s about having fun and trust me it’s very, very fun.


Zoe, Byron Bay, Australia

I started French lessons with Hélène two years ago in preparation for an exchange, and since then my French has improved substantially. 

Hélène gives fantastic lessons in conversational French and is always looking for ways to help improve her students’ speaking levels in ways that are interesting and tailored to them. 

Being French herself, Hélène has an authentic, local knowledge of the language that she is very willing to transfer to her students in order to give them the best understanding of the language. 

Hélène is also incredibly kind, accommodating, and patient. I love lessons with Hélène and would highly recommend for anyone looking to improve both grammatical and conversational French. 


Meredith Morschel, Yamba, Australia

I really enjoy my weekly virtual French lesson with Helene (we conduct our lesson via Skype). I have learned a lot over the past year.

Helene designs the lessons so that they build on from the previous week and in a way that supports your progress. We always do a combination of grammar, pronunciation/speaking, and exercises to reinforce the grammar lesson.

Helene uses various techniques to assist the learning process including voice recordings which I listen to and transcribe, a great way to improve listening and writing skills.

Helene’s gentle and supportive teaching style makes it a pleasure to attend ‘class’ every week. I highly recommend Helene if you are keen to learn French.
