At French à la Carte, the emphasis is placed on speaking and understanding the language with the right balance of fluency and accuracy. Our General French 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. In addition, progression is tailored to the level and interests of the group being taught.

We currently offer 19 group classes of all levels, from complete beginners to very advanced. Our groups have on average 12 students per class, and a maximum of 16 students.

Each General French class moves up one level at the beginning of each year (in other words, one level = 4 terms).

164A Mona Vale Rd St Ives NSW 2075
