During school terms, weekly classes at the Alliance Française d'Adelaïde provide high school students in years 9 to 12 with extra practice in oral and written skills, listening and reading comprehension and contemporary French culture.
Our vibrant native French speaking teachers encourage all students to develop communication skills in a friendly and supportive environment, the class size being limited to 16 students, and with access to a wealth of resources.
I attended weekly classes at the Alliance Française during years 11 and 12, allowing me to improve core language skills and gain confidence in how to approach the IB French assessment tasks. Working in a relaxed environment with my teacher Arnaud and my peers meant that I was able to significantly improve my performance in exams. I highly recommend the Alliance to any students looking to gain an edge in IB French.

I am very glad to have studied Stage 2 French at the Alliance Francaise, as I can safely say I could not have achieved the marks that I did if I had not done so. The teachers were always there to provide help and support when needed while making learning enjoyable and relevant, and by the end of the year I felt very well prepared for both the oral and written exam. Now going in to university to continue my French studies, I feel confident that the skills I have gained from studying French at the Alliance Française will give me a considerable advantage in my future endeavours in the French language.
