They Talk About Us…

EF-250

Choosing a grind school for additional help can be a very daunting task.  Individual or group grinds? Different prices, different choices, different promises. You are right to feel that it is a decision that should not be taken lightly – you will rely completely on your chosen grind to ensure you obtain your desired grade in French or Irish.  Looking up the Golden Pages or browsing the Internet is really not a smart move in deciding on who to trust in ensuring you achieve your potential.

What you should be doing is seeking advice from those you trust – your French and Irish teachers, your school principal, French and Irish exam correctors, your career guidance counsellor, neighbours, fellow students, friends and family. They all recommend the same place : where over 50% of the students obtained an A in the Leaving Cert or Junior Cert  last year, 2011 (compared to 10% nationally). We at Essential French Language College promise to maximise your potential regardless of your level.

We rely soley on word of mouth.  Our programmes are FULLY BOOKED OUT every year.  This is why…..

Essential French Language College, is a provider of French and Irish Grinds in Cork for Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate students.

    Choosing to do EF was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I could have ever made regarding my leaving cert. I have a new found love and understanding for a subject that I until this September had dismissed completely not to mention a whole rake of new friends. Amidst all the stress of 5th year this has given me confidence and put me at ease all the while expanding my vocabulary and knowledge of the (many) different tenses. All in all I could not be more thankful for EF 🙂

    Essential French has greatly improved my French this year. The classes are really fun and get you involved in every part of the class. The teacher focuses a lot of attention on you also because they only have max 7 students per class! I found it really helpful and the notes are easy to learn as you are using them every week! It is a lot of work but it’s worth it if you put in the effort and make the most of it!

    Essential French are absolutely excellent, French was one of my weakest subjects coming in to the centre and my confidence in it has been boosted so much! The teachers and staff are all really motivated and hardworking, it’s the perfect place to improve your French!

    Essential French is brill. If you are looking for a high mark in French, look no further. Genuinely couldn’t speak more highly of the course and the teachers. Don’t know where I’d be without it.

    Essential French is a grind school like no other. The structure and exam focused nature of the course will motivate you from day one! Only this time last year I had a lot of difficulty with the French course, but now I’m delighted to say that it’s my favourite subject! I even hope to pursue it next year in college. Thanks to the amazing team at EF, I’m feeling a lot more confident about my exam in June!

    The teachers, learning atmosphere and of course the exact, exam-focused nature of the notes all add to create an excellently efficient course. The Irish LC oral course was second to none due to the small class size (6 pupils) and the positive learning environment! Constantly running competitions on various social media sites I was given the opportunity to part-take in a 4 pupil week long German oral course with a native German speaker. Can’t recommend my experience in EF enough!

    Before I started Essential French , french was by far my worst subject in school. But after spending the year in EF I can confidently and proudly say french is one of my best subjects now ! Essential french truly is so unique and amazing , the material you receive is A1 and unlike no other grind school. Their teaching methods are so engaging with rhymes , patterns and other key strategies. You are constantly learning something even if you don’t realise it. The oral material is tailored just for you and you are guaranteed to stand out and be different from the rest of your year. Believe me when I say you will be THE ENVY of all your friends who didn’t do EF ! As strange as this sounds , I seriously can’t wait for my French exam in June 🙂

    Essential French is a grind like no other. I have done French, Irish and English with EF and I would recommend all courses to every LC student as so much insight and help is offered in each. An effective style of teaching which cuts down the work load and 24/7 support really helped me focus and improve my weaker areas. Every aspect of the course is covered in depth and key strategies are given to best equip yourself in approaching the exam in June. Can’t recommend EF enough, very proud to be an EFer!

    French is one of my favourite subjects all thanks to Essential French. During 5th year I did a different French grind in Cork and by the end of the year I still felt like dropping to pass was my best option. When I joined Essential French I was amazed by how rapidly I improved and how confident in French I became. My biggest regret is not joining Essential French sooner (5th year) seeing as I’ve learned so much the past 7 months I couldn’t even imagine the amount of French I would have after doing it for 2 years! Thanks to Essential French I am feeling confident about my French exam. I would 100% recommend it!

  11. Molly March 25, 2014 at 10:35 pm #

    I would definitely recommend essential French to all fifth years. I find it very helpful with the amount of notes and extra help that is provided and I know If I didn’t go to essential french I would definitely be doing pass so I am very happy I started in fifth year! It helped me improve so much and made it way easier as it used be one of my weakest subjects

    Essential French has saved me from dropping down to pass french and I am now getting high b’s on every test! the social media aspect is amazing help is always there 24/7 no matter what and thhe twitter and vine pages are so helpful! Would reccomend EF to anyone who feels that they haven’t gotten to grips with the LC french course, best thing i have done all year!

    Doing essential french was without doubt the best decision i could have made this year, i count myself lucky to be doing essential french as i have improved a huge amount since the end of fifth year.
    It helps so much and you have so much support there. The oral work is fantastic along with the learning methods they teach us for listening , written pieces and comprehensions. Definitely do essential french if you want a high grade in the subject, without doubt the best grinds imaginable.

    EF are absolutely brill! 😀 They’ve helped me improve leaps and bounds since September. Particularly in my oral. 🙂 They have tips and advise on every aspect of the course and it’s now the one subject I’m not super stressed about. It’s totally worth doing, I would be lost without Natasha and the EF gang to help me 🙂 Proud to be an EFer 😉

    Don’t know what I’d be doing without EFs help! My french has improved immensely and it’s safe to to that I’d be down in pass without it! 😀 definitely recommending joining EF! Totally worth it 🙂

    Without a doubt the best decision I have made regarding the Leaving cert! The improvement I have made is unbelievable but its the peace of mind that makes it so worth while. June is approaching and I already feel I have a subject sorted. Can’t recommend it enough!
