French Classes for Adults on Sydney’s North Shore


French à la Carte is a French language school for adults offering daytime classes on the North Shore of Sydney, at the Pymble Golf Club, as well as online conversation classes on Zoom. 

The teachers at French à la Carte are all highly qualified native teachers. What’s more, they are passionate about France, its culture and its language. They develop tailor-made programmes to respond directly to the needs of each class.

A great sense of community and friendship develops very quickly in all our classes, therefore making learning an easier and more fun experience. To maximise our students’ exposure to the language and the culture, our courses are complemented by optional:

  • conversation classes,

  • holiday language & cultural workshops,

  • full immersion seminars both overseas and in Australia,

  • as well as various cultural or social events.

Our Students Say …

“You and your teachers have put in so much time, effort and expertise to keep us all involved and having fun with our lessons and extra activities. Thank you all so much.”

(May 2020)

Liz C.

“French à la Carte provides us with lots of bonus content and information during the lockdown period. Merci!”

(May 2020)

Carolyn M.

“The lessons at French à la Carte are fabulous with brilliant teachers that bring the flavour of France right into the room while you tackle learning the language in a supportive group. Really enjoyable and every week I look forward to class!”

Jane W.

“I have studied French as a mature adult student at three institutions, two in Australia and one in France. I have found instruction at French à la Carte to be the best of the three. In particular, grammar and more complex vocabulary are clearly explained in both French and English, rather than in French alone. This, is my experience, optimises comprehension, and enables faster learning.”

Richard D.

“One could not find a more enjoyable and effective way to learn the French language….. The excellent native French speaking teachers provide a fun atmosphere for gaining a solid background of French grammar as well as for developing conversation and comprehension skills with a varied and interesting programme… Learning French at FALC for eight years so far has enriched my life in many ways!”

Judy C.

“I love my lessons at French à la Carte! They are stimulating and also fun – we laugh a lot. It’s great learning in such a relaxed and supportive environment and now, after three years, my classmates have become my friends. I hate missing a single class.”

Alison P.

“I have been attending French à la Carte for 5 years. I have never learnt French before and I have really enjoyed FALC’s fun approach balanced between learning new vocabulary and grammar. It has given me the confidence to speak to French people while travelling and to keep improving. I can highly recommend FALC to any aspirational francophone.”

Rik D.

“After attending various French language options in Sydney over a number of years, I came across FALC and am now in my second year there. I really enjoy both the structure & flexibility of our classes. … We do not follow a prescribed text book but rather a programme designed according to our teacher’s assessments of our needs, & often the grammar points just develop out of our conversation of the day. …Importantly, there are a lot of classes which cater for all levels from beginners to fluency…. The school provides a lot of excellent activities over & above normal classes…”

Ceri H.

” I have been attending French à la Carte for several years. Not only is it a place for linguistic learning but also a place where friendships are formed. There is a vibrancy which makes attending classes and the numerous social functions a pleasure to be involved in. The teachers are truly dedicated and passionate about sharing their love of all things ‘françaises’… making it pleasurable to keep coming back for more. “

Junainah L.

” I cannot speak highly enough of French à la Carte. I have been studying with the school for the last 7 years, having started and stopped at other schools before joining FALC. In that time, our class, which is typical of many at FALC, has lost less than one handful of students, due to unavoidable commitments. The rest of us continue to enjoy the whole experience of learning French at the school. “
