So, you've decided to study French! You might have already bookmarked WordReference in your browser or turned French subtitles on Netflix. But most importantly, you've come to Alliance Française de Sydney. 

We have over 120 years' of experience in teaching French to Sydneysiders, and we can't wait to help you achieve your language goals. Whether that be easily ordering a baguette and catching a train in France, attending the French Open Tournament, understanding why Macron called Turnbull's wife delicieuse, or communicating fluently with family, friends and colleagues around the world - we're here!

With us, you're in safe hands. Our qualified and friendly teachers make learning French enjoyable, and tailor support to you in a way apps, podcasts and video content alone cannot. Experience the Alliance Française difference for yourself.

Which course is right for me?

We recommend you start with our Comprehensive French classes as the most effective way to make progress quickly and easily. Until you have some basic language skills under your belt, our Conversation classes, and the Essentials and French Culture workshops will be too challenging.

If you're wanting to learn the basics for travel around a Francophone country, you can also try our Travellers course
