Language classes in Australia are steadily becoming more popular, with more than a million students taking lessons of some form year after year. Whether at high school, university or private language schools, people in Australia love to spend time getting in touch with other cultures through their languages. Around 200,000 people in Australia are currently taking French courses, at schools like Alliance Francaise. Why so many you ask? Well, it's an elegant and exciting language that is spoken by millions across the world.
Starting private French lessons in Canberra could truly be a great way to get out of your comfort zone and pick up great new skills. Superprof tutors are a good way to get started, as they have experience teaching anyone from beginner to advanced level, and use a variety of interesting teaching methodologies. The best part is that you're in charge of your learning. You can take private lessons, or work with a group, decide if you prefer face to face classes or to work online and choose the time, place and topics of your classes.
Lots of Australian students dream for years of the opportunity to go on exchange, especially in places like France and Italy. It's an experience that allows each student to find some independence and have the experience of a lifetime. However, the majority of exchange programs, like those through high schools or language schools, require a certain proficiency level in the French language.
Taking an exam like the DELF can be daunting, especially if you don't even know where to start looking for resources. Private lessons with a Superprof tutor will help students in areas like reading, speaking, writing and grammar. Many of the tutors have experience taking the exams themselves, so they know what's required of their students, as well as how to best use each lesson to prepare, especially if courses have specific time frames. Getting one of these certificates can help students achieve the level they need to go on an international exchange, but will also get them to a level that can help them get the best out of their experience. You will be able to engage more fully with native speakers and the culture around them during your time in France, making it more meaningful and who knows, maybe you'll decide to stay for years!
Being a native speaker of English can open a lot of doors for work, and adding to that high-level French-speaking and comprehension abilities, any student's chance of finding work in many international markets immediately improve, and not only in France. It's the official language of 29 independent nations from Switzerland to Senegal, and is used in a range of international organisations from the European Union, to FIFA and even the Eurovision Song Contest! If a student is looking for work in any of these areas, speaking French can help your application to stand out. Business French course can focus on different areas class by class, like how to prepare for interviews in French, or a lesson on writing your CV in French to European standards.
It's even useful in an Australian context, in cities from Canberra to Melbourne. Around 100,000 French people visit Australia every year (and that doesn't even count native French speakers that come from other countries). So, if you're in the tourism industry, taking French lessons can only help to gain clients and be able to provide them with more interesting and appropriate resources.
Not only is French a beautiful language to learn, but the skills we learn during lessons can even allow us to have more fun during our lives. Similar to English, when we travel, we can use French to get in contact with people around the world, from native speakers to any other group that uses the language as a lingua franca. You can use it to make friends, get to know their culture and understand their life experience.
When we take language lessons or courses, we often think we'll only learn about grammar, or simply focus on reading, writing and speaking skills. While these are important parts of classes, there is so much more involved with language teaching and learning. Learning French can open up a whole new world of history and culture. The language can give students a better understanding of anything from important historical moments, like the Declaration of the Rights of Man, to cult films like Amélie or exciting new musical styles coming from places like Martinique. You can even ask your Superprof tutor to prepare each class on different cultural aspects throughout your course.
Canberra is an exciting city, and there are events throughout the year to help French students learn and share their language skills in creative and fun ways. A great example is the French Film Festival, run by the Alliance Francaise every year, in cities throughout Australia including the capital. You could take one of your lessons to the cinema with your teacher!
Speaking of the Alliance Francaise, this is a great international organisation that has offices all over Australia. You can get involved with some of the courses offered, like poetry and music workshops, or take part in one of the many events they run during the year. Exciting events like book clubs or dinners can be a good opportunity for teachers and students to take their speaking skills into real life!
