5th year French SOS Seminars – Sat 9th November




Cork, Saturday, 9th November 2013 – Essential French, a leading provider of French and Irish grinds for Junior and Leaving Certificate students in Munster,  offers support to students throughout Cork with one of its Support on Study Seminars, as well as helping a local voluntary cancer support centre, The Girls’ Club.

Essential French runs this series of seminars throughout the academic year, including LC, 5th year and JC seminars for parents and pupils. “We usually hold our 5th year SOS Seminar in the New Year but we have taken so many calls these past few weeks from 5th year students and parents begging us for the seminar we have decided to run the event in November.   There are so many 5th year students in Cork so overwhelmed with the amount of work ahead this year,  they are finding it too much.  Many took a break in Transition Year and are now starting to panic.  During our session we will give an overview of the Leaving Cert French exam and show students how to break the course-work right down, highlighting the key areas that maximize marks as well as sharing some exclusive tips and tricks to make study easy yet effective. We will equip students with the essential information on how to excel in the LC French exam and how to pace themselves between 5th year and LC”, said Natasha.

Established in 1996 by Natasha Lynch, Essential French has earned a reputation for excellence in exam preparation and education given the exceptional exam results that its students consistently achieve. “With over half of our students obtaining an A in the higher level paper we are very proud of both our business and student success, explained Natasha Lynch, Managing Director, Essential French. “We held our first ever SOS seminar over 3 years ago and the response has been phenomenal. The fact that we offer them to ALL students, not just EF pupils, causes a genuine flurry of excitement among Cork schools”, said Natasha.

“This year as well as helping Cork students, we have decided to support a local voluntary centre. We are covering all of the overheads of this seminar to ensure that every single penny taken in will go directly to this very worth-while support group” said Natasha. Admission is €10 for non-Essential French students with all proceeds going to The Girls’ Club, a local voluntary cancer support group for cancer sufferers and their families.  Natasha’s mother, Valerie passed away just over a year ago and both she and Natasha attended the club which they found to be an incredible support. “Ann, the founder of the centre is such an inspiration and I know the more financial support she and her centre receive the more families she can help”, said Natasha.

Essential French is celebrating 17 years of excellence this year.  The EF team’s pioneering teaching methods have yielded exceptional results, and have been consistently proven by the highest levels of A grades in state exams year on year in French and Irish.  With over 10k followers on Twitter and Facebook the College has firmly placed itself in the forefront of effective utilization of social media to enhance its brand.

The 5th year seminar will take place Saturday, 9th November at the Clarion Hotel, Cork City.   To register please contact Essential French at 021-4277474 or email info@essentialfrench.ie.
