If you want to learn to speak French, our French classes are ideal for adult learners to enjoy a practical and social experience while you learn French language and culture. Learn French with French courses in Sydney at NEWCourse – created for you by the University of Newcastle.

This French course is a French language course designed for anyone with little French background wanting to develop their French language skills or for those who have attended our French Course: Level 1 (Beginners) (or equivalent). This French course aims at providing a real insight into the French culture and society as it develops your skills in reading, writing, comprehension and speaking.

Our communication-based approach ensures that what you learn in class is useful in everyday situations. The practical knowledge you will acquire in this French course will enable you to successfully interact in French with others: to get to know them, find you way in a city or book an accommodation for example.

Those wishing to speak French will need to acquire new vocabulary, practise their pronunciation and learn how to structure a sentence.
