We have been delivering General French classes in St Ives for more than 10 years. We are now offering our popular French classes at Bayview Golf Club in Mona Vale for students living around the Northern Beaches area!

At French à la Carte, the emphasis is placed on speaking and understanding the language with the right balance of fluency and accuracy. Our classes consist of expression and comprehension activities with relevant grammar and vocabulary exercises. Most importantly, we promote learning by tying in practical as well as cultural aspects of life in a French-speaking country. Progression is tailored to the level and interests of the group being taught.

Our teachers are highly qualified native speakers, passionate about French culture and language. More than a standard language centre, our school is a social experience. Some of our students have been with us for more than 10 years!

Whether you want to rediscover the French you learnt way back in high school, or to improve your current French speaking skills, we’re sure to have a class that suits you. Come learn French with us in Mona Vale!
