I offer a range of online lessons using the best resources and technology to facilitate and enhance learning.
The softwares I use are easy to set up. The video conferencing software allows us to interact in a very effective manner during our lessons and your virtual classroom makes lesson plans, assignments and feedback accessible from all devices.
All packs* include a placement test, lessons, assignments, correction and feedback, access to a private Facebook group and a Whatsapp group for additional resources and exercises. All my adult students can participate in the annual trip to France (limited number).
*The cooking course does not have any assignments.
One-to-one & two-to-one
One-to-one & two-to-one lessons are thoroughly planned and involve the four language skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking.
We will first assess your level and carefully set targets. You will be required to work regularly at home in order to make significant progress.
I will send you homework at the end of each lesson.
The levels of our courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
"My husband and I decided we would like to learn French in our own home as we have 2 young children and so it's difficult to go out together in the evenings. Estelle's classes via Zoom and google classroom work perfectly for us. I have been impressed by how well the IT has worked each week and I love the variety of exercises - such as watching short films, listening to audio recordings and reading exercises. The classes are tailored to our interests and we always end up having a laugh together. Estelle is an excellent, patient teacher. I would definitely recommend her classes to friends of all levels." Lizzie, pediatrician.

"I have no hesitation in recommending Estelle. Her classes are clear and focused and she provides lots of support. It's fun to be in her class. Her use of digital resources also makes home study convenient and easy to manage." Alasdair, writer.
Lessons for kids
These lessons are fun and interactive for children from 8 years old. As well as learning specific vocabulary and doing exercises which involve the four skills - reading, listening, writing and speaking - children play games, listen to songs, watch short cartoons and read story books.
"I've had Mrs. Morali-Silver as a teacher for 3 years, this is my fifth year with her. She's such an understanding person and one of the best teacher's I've ever had. I got an A band 1 in my National 5 French thanks to her help. I would really recommend her classes; they're super fun and helpful." Eda, Advanced Higher student.
