French Language Classes in Maryborough

Learn French in a warm and friendly atmosphere
Your teacher, Cecile Espigole, is a certified French native trainer with 15 years' experience in adult training. The structure of the course simulates a trip to France.

    French Conversation Club

    Le Club de conversation française welcomes all students who come to our French language classes, who can express themselves in French and who are keen to develop their conversational skills. Le Club meets twice a month during terms when there are no classes. Please email us or contact Cecile on 0438 195 443 for more information.

    The conversation theme will be emailed to you a few days before the meeting. Participants are most welcome to contribute to the theme prior to the meeting through suggesting, say, a press article they would like to talk about; prepare a talk on current affairs; bring some pictures from their last trip to France; bring a French song; etc. There will be no grammar, no verbs, no white board. These meetings will be 100% pure French for you to practice, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.



     
    Francopohone/Francophiles Gatherings

    A social network was created when we started organising French Languages Classes in Maryborough. Our group comprises students learning French, keen to develop their conversational skills; French nationals living on the Fraser Coast with a desire to meet people who are interested in the French culture; Australians who have lived in France or a French speaking country and who would like to maintain their fluency in French; etc. Our group meets to celebrate French events such as Bastille Day, Chandeleur with crêpes, Epiphany with galette des rois, Christmas, for a French movie or a presentation on a French speaking country or just over a cup of tea/coffee, a glass of (French!) wine or a game of petanque. We always find a good reason for a get together!

    Contact us if you would like to know when our next gathering is taking place and if you would like us to add your email address to our mailing list for future events.

    Our gatherings are free of charge except when we organise a meal for Bastille Day, Christmas, etc.


     
    French Language Immersion Weekends
    Spend a weekend in France in Maryborough or in Rainbow Beach!

    Presentation of the programme
    You have worked hard learning vocabulary, grammar and verbs and doing homework in the various French classes you've been attending? Reward yourself... Take a trip to France or to a French speaking country to put into practice what you learnt during classes. Often time or other commitments prevents you from taking time out to travel overseas. Solution: "A weekend in France in Maryborough or Rainbow Beach!"

    The two locations chosen for our French immersion weekends are as beautiful and inspiring as France and you will live as if you were in France: speak French (French only...), eat French food, watch French movies, play French games, etc. Live French for 48 hours and hopefully end up dreaming in French! The French immersion programme includes three workshops to study some topics in depth: Cinéma français, Chanson française and Cuisine française. Est-ce que cela vous intéresse ?

    Objectives of the French Immersion Programme
    Participants who have some good foundations in the French language can really hit the fast track when attending an immersion programme.
    The benefits of this programme include:

    • Gaining functional fluency in the French language (not necessary accuracy of usage though... accuracy is what we work on during the formal classes);
    • Gaining confidence in French conversation and more specifically in the themes studied in depth during workshops;
    • Gaining insight into the French culture;
    • Improving listening, study, thinking and problem solving skills;
    • Personal enrichment, having some fun and a good time.
