Kids + Teens

Enrich your child’s life and open their mind: enrol them in a French class!

By exposing your children to a foreign language early in their life, you will help them develop lifelong learning abilities: not only will they gain confidence by learning to communicate in another language, but they will be able to acquire other languages more easily, adapt to new situations and think creatively. The Alliance Française d’Adélaïde provides a natural progression through the levels, meaning that children can begin classes at any age!

We are required by the Ethnic Schools Association of South Australia to have their enrolment form completed each year for children attending our school.  It may be emailed to admin@af.org.au

COVID-19 Update: We're reopening with enriched on-site courses!

Our French courses will return to our regular face-to-face classes in our new enriched on-site courses. As a student of the Alliance Française d’Adélaïde, you will join our community of teachers and students with weekly in-person French classes, as well as an online platform to practise your writing and grammar skills outside of the classroom! If you cannot make it on-site, we will continue to provide online sessions of selected courses during Term 3.

Year 4 - 7

For Children in Year 4, 5, 6 or 7 at school in 2020.

The Year 4-7 intermediate textbook was created for children whom already have a beginner level in French (A1). Year 4-7 children are between childhood and adolescence. Thus, textbooks are either too easy or too complicated for them. So, we have developed this textbook with themes, exercises and a rhythm adapted to their age and interests in order to maintain their interest in French language. For instance, we have developed themes such as school life, fashion and cinema.

Students work collectively on vocabulary, grammar, comprehension and culture.
