Enfin, on peut bien parler anglais!
Have you struggled to make yourself understood in English? Are your international communication skills holding you back in your career? We're just over the Channel and yet it's another world of sounds that the French language doesn't have - whether it's the flat 'r', that tricky 'th' sound or our endless weird diphthongs and long vowels.
Developed at Oxford University Innovation in conjunction with the Institut Français, our 4-week intensive English pronunciation training programme for French speakers is designed to tackle the challenges of the English language systematically, paying particular attention to the needs of French speakers.
Your tutor is an Oxford graduate in English who has worked at the Royal Shakespeare Company and the House of Lords and has professional training in theatre and music. We have worked successfully with delegates at AXA IM and Amundi as well as other leading financial institutions. Our training has proven results and has been helping professional people like you since 2017.
'I now feel much more relaxed and self confident, as I am able to focus on the content rather than the form of my speech.
I felt my teacher found the right balance between simple functional exercises during our sessions, off-session work and purpose-built exercises to help me deal with live professional challenges. Lastly, this learning journey allowed me to broaden my knowledge of British culture through famous poems, songs and movies. I highly recommend this program to any French speaker!'
