French lessons in Melbourne

Get Started and Learn French

French is the mother tongue of 29 countries and ranks inside the top 10 most-spoken languages around the globe. It’s no surprise that a vast community of 5,000 French Australians lives in Melbourne, according to 2018 data from Live in Melbourne. This is, in part, due to Melbourne's dedication to preserving and celebrating French history and, as a result, the French culture is strong in the city. Knowing French, then, will allow you to connect with this community on another level and will also broaden your professional horizons. Contact us today to know more about taking French courses in Melbourne, and we will start designing a course tailored to your needs and requirements!

Why Study French in Melbourne

For Work:  If you are actively job seeking, you will be glad to know that French can open up many professional opportunities in Melbourne. For example, many companies are looking for bilingual interpreters to communicate with French and French-Canadian tourists. If you are looking to connect with companies of French origin, you can contact the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce (Victoria Chapter), the leading French-Australian business network in the city. They can help you integrate into the market. And why not go one step further and travel to France on a vacation? In a little over 14 hours, you will be in stunning Paris, speaking to the locals and ordering delicious food with the skills you acquired with Language Trainers, strengthening your bond with this fascinating language, its culture and its people!

For Culture: There are also many opportunities to experience French culture in Melbourne. As 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 on Fitzroy St, illustrating their complete dedication to the sport. There is also a Bastille Day Festival every July, where you can attend master classes, workshops, watch lively can-can dancers and crossed swords fencing, and go on a walking tour, where everything is communicated in French. We are sure you will not need a translator after taking some lessons with us! There is also a karaoke session at night, so you can take advantage of this opportunity to sing along to your favourite songs in French and impress your friends with your flawless pronunciation! And if you love theatre, consider attending one of the many French-speaking plays the Melbourne French Theatre on Canning Street, founded in 1977.

For Social: Those who would like to make new friends while practising French should join the French Conversation in Melbourne Meetup group. It has more than 2,200 members who get together to practise their French and discuss cultural topics while socialising. Apart from meeting regularly, the group produces a magazine! It is entirely in French, so you can try to read it after some lessons with us to see how much vocabulary you have learned! And if you love traditional French food, you can go to the French Brasserie on Malthouse Lane, where you can order beef cheek bourguignon, grass sirloin or bouillabaisse using the French pronunciation you learn in your classes with Language Trainers. Another great option is Philippe on Collins Street. Impress your new friends with your language skills!
