About

French classes with a native speaker.

This is more than just a sing along group!

I am absolutely passionate about language learning. I use fun resources to make the class exciting for the children.

We use a lot of repetition (the children thrive on it!) and they learn a lot.

You can expect them to know their colours, numbers, familiar animal names and a lot more within a few months. All with the most beautiful french accent...

I have 2 young children who are fully bilingual. They inspire me every day and are the reason why I started teaching French.

  • Gabrielle Papeix Thu 28th Sep 2017 Attended with 1 year-old Stephanie is such a natural teacher. She really understands how children learn and experience their world. She is extremely patient with all the children and seems to genuinely enjoy their company. I also had adult group lessons with Stephanie and while completely different in format and content, these lessons were no less excellent. I can highly recommend La Grenouille Bleue for all ages and stages of learning French.
  • Isabel Adeyemi Tue 22nd Aug 2017 Attended with 1 year-old I have been taking my daughter Maria to these classes for the past 6 months. She loves the songs and listening to Stephanie read out french books. It's an opportunity for me to learn french songs we can sing at home. It's also a great way to meet other parents, some speak french and some don't but want their kids to at least become familiar with the pronunciation and different sounds. Maria and I both enjoy coming to these classes and I highly recommend them to others.
  • Susie Allen Tue 15th Aug 2017 Attended with 2 year-old, and 3 year-old I would thoroughly recommend La Grenouille Bleue for anyone looking to introduce their little ones to French. My two girls (21 months and 3 1/2) have been attending classes for 18 months, originally on a group basis but now as a private lesson. Stephanie is a brilliant tutor - methodical yet engaging. She is very patient and empathetic towards my two (the older one is very shy and clingy so can be quite tricky). I am definitely seeing results. My older daughter knows many French songs off by heart and with a little prompting can reel off colours, numbers and basic words and phrases. My youngest is happy to do a full 30 minutes with Stephanie in which Stephanie only speaks French and she already recites bits of songs and comes out with French words when she hears French being spoken. I would say if your child is a little shy then s/he may get a little more from a one-to-one session but the group sessions are great too, particularly if your child is happy to speak out loud in front of others.
  • Claire Jenkins Sat 12th Aug 2017 Attended with 3 year-old Steph's French classes are wonderful. I have been taking my 3 year old son for 2 years now and he loves it. He can count to 15 in French now and joins in with lots of words to the various songs we sing in class. The way Steph tells stories is so engaging that she has my son and the other children engrossed! Having been to other baby/ toddler language classes, I have found La Grenouille Bleu to be the most varied in terms of methods used (stories, songs, flash cards, games) and also the most responsive to the children in the group (this is helped by the fact that the classes are kept intentionally small). The fact that Steph herself is French is of course a key factor too - the children are picking up authentic accents when they repeat the words that she says. My only concern is that school teachers will have a tough act to follow!
  • Lydia Debenham Thu 10th Aug 2017 Attended with 2 year-old Fantastic teacher, who knows how to keep kids' attention and my daughter is now repeating all the French phrases and songs. Definitely recommended as I enjoy it too!!
  • Mark Marshall Thu 10th Aug 2017 Attended with under-1 year-old My son, Arran, has been attending the classes for over six months and loves going. Although he cannot speak yet I can see in his behaviours that he loves being there as he's always happy and smiley. Stephanie make the classes very inclusive and involves all the children(and adults) which makes for a fun class each week.
  • Lydia Debenham on Facebook Mon 5th Dec 2016 Stephanie is wonderful and my daughter now sings and counts in French (she's nearly 2), so proud!! Would recommend it to everyone.
