Yes, we offer French classes! In the comfort of our Bowral studio, Antonio leads conversational classes to improve pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. Antonio is a native French speaker and an entertaining conversationalist - classes are never boring, too slow or too complicated. He is experienced, friendly, down-to-earth and has the ability to explain things simply and clearly – albeit with a French accent!
The classes focus on the development of conversational skills as the fundamental objective. Antonio explains the rules of French in English where necessary to make it easier to assimilate the information.
The small class sizes ensure nobody misses out on the opportunity to speak and to keep up with what is happening. We make sure it's a very relaxed environment, conducive to learning and driven by a real desire and eagerness to expand your knowledge and language skills. We know that the more you enjoy the learning experience, the more quickly and more easily you will improve with the language.
All our classes use the internet to access French news web sites and current French TV. This opens discussion to current events and the French 'take' on what is happening in the world. If you haven’t explored this before you will be amazed at the differences between Australian and French reporting. We also include contemporary French music and films and explore their passionate lifestyle, the art and cuisine of the country.

You will have a chance to work towards great spoken fluency.
