Online Courses

Learn French at home and join our online community!

Our Adult French courses have temporarily moved to an online format until further notice. We offer both Online Group or Private Tuition packages. As student of Alliance Française de Sydney, you will join our online community of teachers and students for practising your writing and grammar skills outside of the classroom. Courses will be provided via Google Meet and students and teachers will also exchange through the Apolearn platform.

Our e-learning plan is based on three tools:


1) A video conference tool, Google Meet, for web meetings allowing you to see, listen and engage in exchanges with your teacher.



2) A platform, Apolearn, that you can use anywhere, anytime to submit homework and assignments (formal teaching) or take the opportunity to engage with your classmates (informal teaching).


3) A convenient online French keyboard, that will assist you with written work and typing accented characters. Simply type, copy and paste.

Other tools to complement your learning: 



Every day, receive exercises, texts and dialogues adapted to your needs, capabilities and goals. Once it's completed, you'll immediately receive personalised corrections and explanations. Available on your PC, tablet and smartphone. 



Access dozens of extra exercises available on your smartphone, computer or tablet. Made available exclusively for our students, after each lesson new exercises (including a large selection of audio exercises) are released. 


How do face-to-face courses differ from this e-learning plan?

To us, it is equivalent. In some cases, language appropriation and the learning process are even more successful with e-learning! It is important to note that an online environment does require an aspect of self-learning, including self-discipline, dedicated time put aside for classes and homework, and a level of dedication to your classes. We hope that you will have a great experience with us, and that in time, the current climate here (and globally) will improve.
