Learning French need not be a dry, academic affair.  The historical problem with foreign language teaching in British schools is that there is too much emphasis on long-winded grammatical explanations and not enough time is devoted to the target language. 

Tutors should teach with a holistic, natural approach, allowing students to communicate verbally as much as possible.  They should be sensitive to their students' abilities and remain in the French language as much as possible during the course of the lessons. 

Today, it is a pity that languages are no longer compulsory in the UK education system and this is a shocking state of affairs that can only reflect negatively on students' prospects in the work place and in life, in general.  Most young Europeans now all speak competent English and British students are being left behind in this regard. 

Studying with a tutor can be seen by students as a valuable asset to their lives, whether just for a hobby or for professional purposes.
