French lessons in Melbourne

Why learn French in Melbourne? – While Melbourne doesn't view French as an official language, there are residents with French bloodlines. Thousands of Australian-born French residents and 21% of French-born Australians live in the Victorian capital, according to 2018 data from Live in Melbourne. It’s a small percentage, yet those people will appreciate speaking to a person who took French classes in Melbourne.

The second most populous city in Australia, Melbourne has a thriving French community. Within the city there are restaurants, bakeries, shops, and an art scene dedicated to celebrating French culture. French Australians play Petanque, and the St. Kilda Petanque Sports Club shows complete dedication to the sport. There's a yearly Bastille Day Festival, and the Melbourne French Theatre offers French-speaking plays for attendees. If the local scene doesn't entice you to take French lessons in Melbourne, the history should.

The French origin dates far back in history, starting in the 18th century. The French arrived in Australia with trade and interest as motivation. They stayed, becoming successful wine-makers, merchants, and landowners. The venture really paid off during the Victorian Gold Rush in the 1850s, luring many French immigrants to Victoria in droves. After the Gold Rush died down, the French slowly left the area. The ones remaining made an impact. They started the first foreign-language newspaper and the Alliance Francaise, a French organisation promoting the French culture, history, and language. Victoria never regained French settlers until World War II, where the French fled to Victoria for safety. The second surge occurred when French-speaking African and Asian colonies declared independence from France in the 1960s and 1970s. Since then, the French population remained steady, making a breakthrough impact that has influenced radio, television programmes, restaurants, schools, religions, and traditions.

The French culture is strong because of Melbourne's unwavering dedication to preserving and celebrating French history. Contact us about taking French courses in Melbourne, and you’ll open a new world of opportunities. You can communicate with French and French-Canadian tourists as a translator. You can be an intermediary for employers and companies, especially in the science, technology, retail, education, manufacturing, and food industries - the career choice of most French residents. A third reason to learn French is bonding with the local French community on a deeper level. Take a step further and travel to France on a vacation and strengthen the bond with the second language. In summary, learning a second language is valuable.

If you want to embrace the French spirit, the Victorian capital city offers an opportunity to learn the language. After taking our free French level test, find out more by sending us an enquiry. Learn the language of love from a native French tutor who will teach you on your schedule.
