From our students

I have absolutely enjoyed learning the language and the culture at Alliance Francaise! I had very helpful and engaging teachers and was in a class environment where we were able to encourage and support each other. I have made some wonderful friends over the year which contributed in making my journey exciting and fun.
Liz Duniec  

I was fortunate enough to attend the year 10 Immersion Weekend. It was an amazing experience. All of the teachers were extremely passionate and inspiring and made learning fun and interactive. For a whole weekend we were completely immersed in the world of French language and culture. It made it exciting and I came away from the camp motivated about my French studies.

Matilda Bell-Wilcock  
Our daughter has developed a real love of learning the language because of the fun and happy atmosphere in the classroom and a strong sense of belonging to the lovely community at the Alliance Francaise. We believe that learning French is important to our child’s development and also integral in providing our daughter with a well-rounded education.
