A Message from the EF Team

Bienvenue and Welcome to our website.

Essential French is celebrating 26 years of excellence this year. We are so proud that our Leaving Cert results remain unmatched anywhere in Ireland.

Our unique programme includes ALL aspects of the Leaving Cert exam – oral, written, listening and reading comprehensions.  We do not follow a text book, as we find that most are  irrelevant in parts and because they are widely available, there is nothing exclusive in content.   The material we provide is EXCLUSIVE to Essential French students.  As we are a grinds college, we are not obliged to follow any syllabus as laid out by the Department of Education.  Instead, we have developed a unique and exclusive programme – our primary focus is to teach our students how to WOW in the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert exams.We concentrate entirely on the aspects of each course that will impress the examiner.  As a result of this, our students obtain the highest grades in Leaving Cert French nationally for the past 19 years.

Our speciality has always been integrated learning on and off line- engaging our students across social media and moodle. Since the school closures, our online classes have been a huge success and parents and students requested that this become an on-going feature of our programmes. As a result, our blended approach has been given a fresh polish on every level, our strategy is to deliver the best classroom and online experience possible. Already our copyright programme and materials, along with our exclusive answering technique is one of the keys to our unmatched number of top grades every year, now we have a more comprehensive online tool kit.

We are thrilled with the makeover at our HQ as we want our unique college to be inspiring, inviting, and encourage creative thinking and learning. We have halved student numbers in our classrooms, which will result in even more personal attention. We have left no stone unturned to offer you a more flexible service jam packed full of engaging content to help our students strive to be the best they possibly can.

We hope to talk to you very soon.

A la prochaine,
