Katrina, Deborah and the team at Lingua Franca have helped me take my French to a new level. I love that they always have small classes of likeminded adults who are keen to have fun while learning. The Lingua Franca team always make sure you are in the right level class and they have fresh, fun ways to learn. Merci bien l’equipe Lingua Franca.

The DELF training and exam has dramatically improved my skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking and helped me understand the French language rather than just knowing some words to say. I am far more confident and looking forward to next year!

My first real trip to Noumea, my first involvement with Lingua Franca and far exceeded expectations on both counts. Well organized, very friendly, great French, food and wine; an experience well worth repeating.
— Tony
I found the Noumea trip a fun, non-threatening way to learn more French, mix with a new group of people and get a taste of a different culture. Loved it so much I took the family there for a holiday six months later.
