  • french afterschool care in act school

    In 2015, Alliance Franaise de Canberra is starting a new program of afterschool care in ACT schools.

    We believe that early exposure to a foreign language gives children cognitive benefits

    transferable to all learning areas and further helps develop a global mindset building on the

    awareness and understanding of a foreign culture. Moreover, children get to enjoy a fun and friendly environment where learning takes place through

    recreational activities!

    french official examsRecognised in 165 countries, the DELF and DALF exams (Diplme dtudesenlanguefranaise-Diplme approfondi de langue franaise) are official French

    certifications administered by the French Ministry of Education.
