French lessons in Brisbane
Brisbane is one of the most important cities in Australia and it is one of the most diverse as well. In fact, there are numerous expat communities living in Brisbane with many French Australians living in the city. When the 2011 census was recorded, there were almost 2,000 people of French descent living in the city and they like to share their culture far and wide. Today, the Brisbane French Festival, held over the Bastille Day weekend, is Australia's biggest French festival, making this city one of the best places to experience French culture without having to leave the country! So, if you would like to connect with these French-speaking communities on another level, or apply for a position at a company that is in need of for bilingual French speakers, send us an enquiry and sign up for a course today!
Why Study French in Brisbane
For Work: Learning French in Brisbane will prove to be an asset if you are trying to land a job with a French company or one that does a lot of business with French-speaking nations/clients. First, there are many companies expanding into French-speaking markets, so they need bilingual speakers to add to their teams. Some businesses that are always hiring people proficient in French are Accor Australia, Princess Cruise Lines and Baytech. And if you would like to network with entrepreneurs and businesspeople of French origin, you should contact the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry on Eagle Street. Founded in 1899, this is an independent not-for-profit organisation with Chapters and offices in Brisbane. The board regularly organises networking events and conferences, such as the annual Electric National Innovation Business Forum. This event brings together key speakers from government, senior academic circles and pioneering French, Australian and international companies, showcasing some of the best innovative practices and highlighting new solutions. Make the most out of these opportunities by learning some French beforehand!
For Culture: In addition to broadening your professional horizons by learning French, you can also use it to help delve further into the fascinating culture in the city. Attend the many events organised by the Alliance Francaise in Brisbane, an institution dedicated to the promotion of the French language and culture. For example, if you are interested in literature, you can join their weekly book club. This group of 8 to 15 people meet to discuss contemporary French writers in a friendly and informal atmosphere, and they do so entirely in French! Take advantage of this opportunity after taking a suitable number of lessons with us and improve your reading and speaking skills even more! Other events you should not miss are “Le Festival” and “La French Week”, which attract the French, Francophiles and the wider community to South Bank to celebrate Bastille Day. The festival showcases a diverse range of music, food, education and lifestyle “à la Francaise”, as well as strengthens French-Australian cultural and business relationships. Impress the attendees with your French skills!
For Social and Food: Sign up for a French course and make new friends with similar interests around Brisbane. The French Language Learners and Improvers Brisbane, for instance, is always open to anyone who wants to practise their French. It has over 500 active members that get together every week at different bars and themed restaurants. Some of them are Boucher French Bistro on Honour Avenue or Prive249 inside Sofitel Brisbane Central, where you can try French dishes like ratatouille, flamiche or soupe à l'oignon. Why not try and order using your newly-acquired French pronunciation?
