A New Way of Learning French

Bienvenue en France!

Embark on a French Journey where you will taste fantastic French food, learn about culture and language in a warm and friendly environment.

All our language courses have been designed to offer a new way of learning French by being immersed into everyday situations. The programs differ from most as they offer an entire immersion into the French language, food and cultural aspects. Each week you will feel France without leaving Australia.

We aim to provide a friendly and positive environment where French can be learnt in a fun atmosphere.

If you would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact us by email at info@frenchjourney.com.au or in person at 567 Hampton Street, Hampton Vic.

Au revoir et à bientôt!
