We are pleased to be able to offer you enrolment in one of the following classes:
Beginners: – for those with no experience of French. (PLEASE NOTE - this is a sequential class and runs all year. If you join the class after Term 1 it would be helpful to have had a little experience in learning French, as the rest of the class would have progressed beyond complete beginner level.)
Reinforcement: – for those who are already able to conduct a basic conversation in French when supported by the tutor.
Independent: – for those who can already converse in French with some independence and very little support from the tutor.
Advanced Conversation: – for those who can already converse easily in French with a native speaker.
A minimum of 5 students is necessary to run a class. The AF de L reserves the right to cancel a class if there are insufficient enrolments.
All classes, except Advanced Conversation, include grammar and oral work and may use a text book or other materials.
Classes run from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesday evenings in the LINC building (School for Seniors) at 8 High St Launceston.
TERM 1: Feb 13 – April 3
TERM 2: May 8 – June 26
TERM 3: July 31 – Sept 18
TERM 4: Oct 23 – Dec 11
COST – for an 8-week term x 2 hour lessons:
• $150 Member of Alliance Française de Launceston
• $170 for Non-Members
Fees must be paid by the second week on term as we have fixed costs which must be met. Newcomers may appreciate the opportunity to visit a class prior to making the commitment for the term/level.
All students study on the one site on Tuesdays, with doors opening by 6.45 p.m., which allows informal contact within classes and between classes. Occasionally there will be some social time scheduled, and groups often choose to meet informally during “holiday time”.
Keen students enjoy French language broadcasts, such as SBS subtitled movies and daily news broadcasts in French. Internet addresses guide students to a range of resources, additional to class handouts.
The AF de L arranges guest speakers and brunches and more at weekends.
