Meet Julie

Photo of Julie Olliero I am a French native and a mother of two, a 10-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl. I have spoken French to my children since birth and they are now happily speaking and singing in both French and English. I am amazed to see how easily they can grasp both languages at the same time.

I have always had a keen interest in languages and I am delighted to be able to pass on my knowledge of the French language and the French culture through my work. I have been a La Jolie Ronde licensee since 2012 and I love seeing the children having fun learning French and making progress so easily! Besides teaching French to children and helping adults to work on their French, I am an English to French translator/proofreader and a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists. I have been proofreading La Jolie Ronde's revised programmes and materials since 2014.

Meet Sandrine

Photo of Sandrine BacheI am a French native and I was brought up on the outskirts of Paris. I have always been interested in foreign languages and my introduction to English was when I was 5 years old in a similar programme as the one La Jolie Ronde provides nowadays. I moved to Scotland in 2012 and I am a proud mother of a 6-year-old boy. From his birth, my son has been spoken to in English and in French and he now understands and speaks both languages.

From my experience as a La Jolie Ronde tutor and as a mother of a child raised in a multilingual environment, I truly believe that a child is never too young to learn a foreign language. Children have the astonishing ability to understand and embrace different languages quickly and easily. Besides being a tutor for La Jolie Ronde, I run some private tuitions in French and Spanish, helping students and adults to learn these beautiful and exciting languages. I am honoured to be a part of the La Jolie Ronde adventure and to have the opportunity to share my knowledge about my native language with the children.

How to get there



From Clarkson Road, turn into Ormonde Drive and drive up the hill. Netherlee Parish Church is at the corner between Ormonde Drive and Ormonde Avenue.

While you wait

  • Enjoy a free tea or coffee in the kitchen area.

  • Or, walk down to the shops on Clarkston Road, there is also a cafe there.

  • For parents with accompanying siblings, there is Linn Park (entrance on Clarkston Road), or the Netherlee Pavillion on Linn Park Avenue accessible from Clarkston Road with a small outdoor play area.

You can download here your child's homelink card for the last French class if he/she missed the class.

The homework is aimed at reinforcing what was introduced or revised in class. It is not mandatory but it is a good opportunity for the children to remind themselves of what we did previously before the next class. It is also an opportunity for parents to follow what their children are doing and to provide any additional support if needed. Each programme has a Parent Guide associated and you will find the link to the guides next to the homework links.

From the programme Salut Céline et Antoine and up, the homework consists of several short activities to do in the book. Some activities might have been already completed or started in class and can be finished at home.
