Why learn French at Balwyn Community Centre?
Worldwide more than 220 million people speak French and alongside English, it is the only language spoken on all of the 5 continents. Whether you dream of wandering the streets of Paris, or have a French friend you’d like to chat with, learning French is a worthwhile pursuit!
What to expect?
When it comes to learning a new language, there’s only so far an app or an online class can take you. It’s so important to work with your classmates and be taught face-to-face by an experienced teacher. Together, you’ll build a strong foundation of knowledge and improve week-by-week until you have a good grasp of the French language. As you progress, you might find your thinking starts to shift, or that your thoughts dip in and out of French and English. This is because learning and speaking a new language has shown to activate different areas of the brain. It encourages greater breadth of thought, as well as creativity and new ways to problem solve. Also, you’ll be able to chat with the French barista at your local cafe!
As part of this course you will learn:
– Reading and writing
– Grammar and spelling
– Conversation and socialising
– Language essentials
– Culture and society
Your tutor, Marie has many years experience teaching students of all ages and skill levels. She encourages her students to go beyond the language and to learn about French culture and society. Marie takes time to answer individual questions, and her students leave class feeling confident about the coursework.
