About us


Our philosophy:

  • We believe that it is very important for language learners to be proactive outside of their lesson time. Our role here is to make the experience easier. Our tutoring service is therefore enhanced by a range of options available to French language enthusiasts: a newsletter, a Flash Info section, a forum, online resources and general tips. Users of the website are encouraged to take full advantage of these facilities and to actively contribute to the forum, in order to practice and improve their own skills while assisting other learners as well.
  • Our other main service, English into French translation and proofreading, is aimed at both companies and individuals who want translators to know intimately both English-speaking French-speaking cultures, and to have an extensive knowledge of the French language. We offer a professional but friendly service to all, happily working on your commercial and personal documents.



Background :


One Stop French’s founder, Sylvie Pons, has two internationally recognised qualifications to teach French as a Foreign Language, both from France and the UK: a Maîtrise (equivalent to a Master) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. She holds, additionally, a Degree in English and Translation and is currently preparing the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation.

Sylvie's career started as a teaching assistant in a non-profit organisation helping newly arrived immigrants in France. She then moved to London, UK, in 2000 where she worked until arriving in New Zealand in 2009. Sylvie has traveled widely, including staying with a family in the States and living in Australia for a year, and has continued visiting France a few times a year.

While in London, she taught French part-time in colleges for adults and universities while also running her own business for private tuition, translation, proof-reading / editing and consulting.

Over the years, Sylvie has:

- taught adults, school children and university students;

- worked with individuals, small and large groups;

- with companies such as Google, BP, Easyjet, banks, law firms, etc ;

- with government departments and Members of Parliament ;

- with a publishing company, Routledge Publishing ;

- and with people doing business, taking exams or moving to a French-speaking country, people interested in the language and culture or with family ties.


Sylvie Pons was awarded the Diploma in Translation (DipTrans) by the Chartered Institute of Linguists in the UK.
