Personalized and tailor-made learning

An method based on personalised support, language autonomy

and oral fluency

Living in Paris since 2007 and originally from Texas, I have been teaching French and English since 2010. My passion for languages led me to study the teaching of foreign languages, a cultural adventure shared between the USA and France that continues today.  


My teaching approach encourages rapid oral fluency and total autonomy in your learning. 

I am certified QUALIOPI in France and authorized to provide training supported by the personal training account (CPF).

Personal support, autonomy & oral profeciency

These three fundamental pillars are at the heart of a tailor-made 5-step program accompanied with personalised support that allows you to progress quickly by targeting the skills you need. The intensive pace, with a minimum of 1 lesson of 50 minutes per week, promotes improved assimilation of the language, allowing you to quickly increase your oral fluency. 

  • How can I complete several modules in one training?
    There are 5 levels of language proficiency. Each level includes modules, and you can complete 1, 2 or 3 modules in a single training. When you start your courses, you will be assigned a starting level and module. For example, B1.8 (level B1, module 8). With James, you establish the level and module you want to achieve at the end of the training. Each module includes 12 lessons of 50 minutes + additional activities. Here are some examples of possible training:
  • When can I start?
    If you take care of the courses or training yourself, you can start right away! In the case of CPF financing, you can start two weeks after registering on the government website. Please make an appointment with James to arrange the start of your lessons!
  • What are the prerequisites for this training?
    This training is open to all adults and all levels. A level assessment will be provided at the start of the training.
  • How do I register for training?
    To register, make an appointment directly with James to discuss your needs and goals.
  • How can I benefit from CPF financing?
    Please make an appointment with James so he can explain your rights and the registration process. You can also consult this site for more information on the CPF.

  • What is the method used by James Batchelor?
    Training and courses are either remote or face-to-face (as an additional option) with James Batchelor. During your registration period, you will have access to a dashboard on Airtable and activities on Off2Class and ELLII. A level assessment is carried out at the beginning and at the end of the training, and you will receive a certificate attesting to your final level. In the case of CPF financing, you will be registered to take the TOEIC. Date of last training update: January 2023
  • What are the evaluation methods for this training?
    At the end of training, each trainee receives their diploma with all the level statistics. This diploma is the result of continuous evaluation of the learner throughout the training. It provides information not only on the levels observed at the end of training, but also on the learning efforts and revisions made upstream, attendance rates, training time, lessons covered, etc. In the case of CPF funding, each trainee will also be registered to take an online TOEIC.
  • What is the success rate?
    In 2022, James Batchelor led 22 training courses supported as part of the CPF. 95% of trainees completed the training in full.
  • How does James adapt the lessons to my needs?
    Adaptability to each trainee is implemented with the aim that the training meets the trainee's objectives. A level and needs assessment is carried out at the start of the training. During the training, role-playing and fun exercises are carried out. Thanks to this training, you will be able to acquire oral and written fluency which will allow you to travel and work without constraints.
  • What should I do if I have a question about the accessibility of the training?
