French for All, Killarney School of French, is ready for a new academic year.

Experienced native French teacher Hélène Olivier-Courtney, from Tours, France set up the French language and culture school in 2006.

The classes are normally based in Killarney, Beaufort and Killorglin, but this year classes will mostly be based in Killorglin and on Skype to ensure continuity.

“Teaching has always been a passion,” Hélène told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The interpersonal communication is the basis of my classes for all age groups and levels.”

Hélène has been teaching since 1995 in Ireland, from primary schools to third level colleges, with an extensive experience of the secondary school curriculum.

“I am really looking forward to the new academic year and can accommodate small groups up to four students or private tuition in either a real class environment or on Skype. In either situation, I always endeavour to teach in a relaxed yet studious atmosphere to ensure that everybody strives, enjoys learning and reaches their potential. Motivation, mutual commitment and continuous support are the foundations of my classes.”
