FRENCH FACTS AT A GLANCE
Our son is studying Honours French for his Leaving Cert 2017 with the help of notes from FrenchNotes.ie. He is finding them most helpful and it has given him more focus and a much better understanding of what he has to do in June. We would highly recommend Frenchnotes.ie. for any student.

Elizabeth Lyne Hayes is an excellent teacher. My son, while bright did not engage with the subject in school and we decided to send him to the French Notes classes. What we found was a teacher who was professional in her approach to teaching but more specifically the French language. Elizabeth made the subject interesting and relevant, the result being that my laid back son changed his attitude to learning French. Elizabeth’s handouts and notes were at all times clear and well researched. Indeed she produced a range of packages to suit students who had different interests to help with essay writing. These included up to date and relevant topics on politics, the economy, and social and cultural issues. She also had a way of getting the best out of every student she came into contact with even the most laid back of her students. Our son got an excellent result in his leaving certificate but it was his attitude to learning that has left its mark for ever.
I am delighted to see my former star student (and our top graduate in French) Liz Hayes putting to such good use her formidable mastery of the French language, not to mention her passion and her skills as a teacher. Inspired and inspiring, she engages 100% with her students and is capable of bringing out the very best in them while still making the learning experience supremely enjoyable. A rare and exceptional motivator, extremely attuned and responsive to her students’ needs.Bravo et bon succès à Frenchnotes.ie ! 🙂
My daughter has found French notes to be a very useful companion to her Leaving Cert French studies and revision. The website is very easy to navigate and my daughter found the diary entries, verb drills and vocabulary sections to be very beneficial to her revision plan. We would have no hesitation in recommending French Notes as a study aid to any student.
“Mam, French is a very interesting language to learn and I really enjoy it”
This quote coming from my seventeen-year-old daughter was like music to my ears. This time last year she hated French, thought it was a stupid language and wondered why she had to learn it!
So why the turn-about? I can only attribute it to her tutorial class with Liz Hayes of French Notes. A weekly class since September has seen not only a new-found love of French but also a higher grade in school exams. Liz’s mastery in French combined with her positive attitude and engagement with the small class of students makes learning enjoyable and fun.
Liz covers the curriculum and stretches students to cover and discuss current affairs and relevant topics. Exam skills and strategies are also offered.
Looking forward to next term when the focus will be on oral French.
Thank you, Liz, for the turnaround!!
Liz is probably one of the most dedicated, focused and hardworking teacher, this country has to offer. Her impeccable gift for French, together with her flawless technique influences our ambition to learn. She makes French very accessible and explains the mechanics of the language so that anyone could understand.
Liz instills confidence in all her students through a comprehensive study of the written course, vigorous oral preparation and thorough reading of French comprehensions. Her passion for the French language is seen in every lesson as she endeavors to support her students in every way possible.
Thank you so much for your help last year. I really enjoyed learning French with you and I am now doing a course in university that I love. I found your notes really useful and they helped me to stand out on the day of the exam.
I was delighted with my A1 last year and I don’t think that I would have achieved this result without your help. I found the notes on the written section excellent and my class mates had nothing like them.
