Que faire en hiver?

Chers étudiants,

Semester 1 is coming to a close: classes will finish on Monday 17 June (Monday’s classes are in lieu of the Queen’s Birthday public holiday).
In the holidays, use online resources to keep up your French. Take the time to read through your notes from past lessons… or watch a French DVD.

Semester 2 / Term 3 will begin on Monday 22 July. You can now enrol in your classes directly on our website: Semester 2 for General French (2-hour classes) and Term 3 for Conversation (1-hour classes).
As all enrolments can now be made online, places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

There are still a few places left in our chocolate making workshops on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 June, see below for details!

Finally, term dates for 2020 are now up on our website, if you like to plan in advance!


Semester 2 re-enrolments

Enrolments are now open online for Semester 2, 2019. Please log in to your online account here and select your class. If you have special circumstances that mean you can only enrol for term 3, please contact Caroline.

For all conversation class students, you can only enrol for each term so please select 'T3' when enrolling.  

Ateliers chocolat - 18 & 19 juin
Join us for a chocolate extravaganza at a Choc et Moi atelier in Brookvale with Belgian chocolatier Hélène. This French language-only workshop is limited to 12 people per group. There are a few places remaining in both groups so make sure you book now. 
During the 2-hour workshop you'll learn about the history of chocolate, with a dégustation of cacao fèves and different types of chocolate. Hélène will demonstrate how to temper chocolate then you'll learn how to make your own mendiants and rochers. Each participant will take home a beautiful box of chocolate delicacies.

Both groups will receive a handout of useful vocabulary to study before the workshop
Pour vos agendas: pétanque au printemps
This group of French à la Carte students had a great time learning how to play pétanque recently with the Boules Artistes Pétanque Club. 

If you'd like to join us for our next après-midi de pétanque, put this date in your diary now- Thursday 10 October from 1pm. Details to be confirmed closer to the date.
Dîner-Bastille au PGC
Join some French à la Carte friends for a sumptuous French-inspired buffet dinner. Please note that this dinner is organised by PGC and not French à la Carte, but we will have 1 or 2 dedicated tables. Only PGC members are able to book directly with the club. If you are not a member please email Caroline so that she can organise your place at the table. If you are a member and have made a booking, please let Caroline know if you want to join us.
Marché Bastille - 7 juillet
We will not have a stand at this year's Bastille Market but we do encourage you to visit it to get your fix of all things French!
Gastronomy tour in France
Our favourite French chef in Australia, Christophe Gregoire from Le Très Bon restaurant in Bungendore, organises an annual gastronomy tour in France. The next one is happening in September 2019.
See here for all the details.
