All intensive courses run from Monday to Saturday inclusive, leaving Sunday for arrival and departure. Each course consists of 24 hours tuition over six days. Written work [optional] is set to be completed outside of these hours and is then corrected. Cassettes and players are available also for practice, and there are French films [with subtitles!] for viewing on some evenings.

The house is situated in the midst of fields [with sheep] and near a delightful river. I recommend that students take some time off to walk there and let their brains unwind. Bodyfuddau has a resident flock of ducks which are very useful for this.


Individual courses can be arranged at any time [subject to other bookings]. It would help if students who have done some French would let me know at time of booking approximately what they have done and where they feel they most need help. It would also be useful to know which books they have studied, in order to avoid duplicating material. I am happy to discuss details over the phone beforehand.

Although no group courses are currently planned, special reductions can be made for 2 people at a similar level who arrange to come together.
