Leaving Cert French
An intensive programme covering all aspects of the LC paper suited only to those willing to give us 100% commitment. With a max of 4 students in our oral based classes, attention to oral practice is second to none.
In EF over 35% of our students received a H1 in the exam. Nationwide, just under 6% of Leaving Cert students obtained a H1 in Higher Level French [increased to 14% in 2022]. We are so proud of the fact that our students have obtained the highest grades nationally in Leaving Cert French for the past 19 years. These results are proof that Essential French remains the leader in French Tuition.
We limit the number of students who we enrol in our Leaving Cert programme every year to guarantee that our material remains EXCLUSIVE to those attending EF. No other student in the country will have access to this material which WOWS examiners every year.
