GCSE French

Corinne has been teaching my (bilingual) 14 year daughter for over three years now. She is a brilliant French teacher whose lessons are always varied, demanding and fun.
She covers essential grammar and exam style questions using the required exam board material as well as resources which appeal to adolescents such as articles from French teen magazines, food recipes, music videos, film clips, card games to build vocabulary etc. She also, as a matter of course, make links with other parts of the curriculum such as history and geography and current affairs.

Corinne is a dedicated, enthusiastic teacher
with a sense of humour which puts her students at ease. She
does everything she can to help them to enjoy her lessons and succeed, regularly emailing articles or clips after the lesson to further consolidate what has been learnt. My daughter has learnt so much with Corinne and has achieved extremely high marks in the DELF exams (certified by the French Ministry of Education). She is now working towards the French GCSE with Corinne.

My daughter looks forward to her lessons which is no small feat in a teenager! Corinne is quite simply one of the best teachers I have ever come across.

Corinne takes the fear out of French. From the basics to the advanced and, thank goodness, how the French actually speak French. You won’t feel out of place in South Ken ever again!!

I particularly valued the flexibility of Corinne’s teaching method, assessing my real needs and then concentrating on those, rather than going over ground I already felt comfortable with. I enjoyed our lessons very much indeed.

“Corinne is an excellent French teacher – she’s great fun, laughs a lot, and is always thinking of clever ways to make you remember what she’s teaching!”

Thank you Mosaic Languages for making learning Italian such fun.
Starting from scratch, through a short course of individual lessons tailored
to my needs, I learnt enough so I was able to understand the people I met
and was confident to try out my Italian. It made such a difference to the
holiday. I shall certainly sign up again to brush up my skills and
recommend you to people of any age —if I learnt with Mosaic Languages, so
can you

It was a pleasure to have Angela teach us Italian. She is very approachable, flexible and generous with her time. She structured each lesson to help us get the most out of our time and we definitely felt the benefit during our recent trip to Italy. We would heartily recommend Angela to anyone.

Why learning French when studying Alevel Science?

There are a myriad of ways in which learning French with Corinne has helped me, whether it be for my own personal development or for my university applications.

Studying only science subjects at school I’m exposed very little to culture, literature, current affairs, politics and more. As I wasn’t studying French for my A Level exam I had the freedom to choose what to study in my lessons with Corinne. I chose to focus on those things I wasn’t learning at school; we studied current affairs, literature, film and focused on topics that interested me. Through this I improved my French grammar, vocabulary and aural as well as developed my interests thus making me a more cultured person.

This has had a huge impact on my debating. I’m on the school debate team and will be competing nationally in multiple competitions this year. I often use the knowledge learnt from studying French with Corinne in my debates whether it be on political or environmental issues. Moreover the confidence required in learning to speak French boosted my public speaking skills in general for the debates.

Moreover learning French helped me with the university application process. I have applied for American universities and in order to do so I have had to sit the SAT exam. This is a roughly 4 hour long exam which focuses primarily on reading and writing ability. Although this may seem simple I never actually learned English grammar in a structured way. However with Corinne teaching me language structure for French I was well prepared for the exam knowing things such as misplaced modifier errors and the objective and nominative case.

With a good SAT score I was invited for interview at MIT. Well the interview was in London not in Boston but nonetheless it was for the university. As I am interested in Engineering and in particular in renewable energy I had been reading lots of related articles with Corinne on the subject matter. Hence at the interview I was well prepared to talk about my interest in Engineering; the interview lasted an hour and a half! Although it wasn’t the French language which helped me in this case, the knowledge and culture acquired from learning it made a big difference in my interview.

Overall continuing French lessons with Corinne despite not doing French A Level at school benefitted me enormously. Not only has it developed my language skills but it has also had an impact on other aspects of my life. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone else to do so even if going down the science route at school and university such as myself.
