French is useful: it is the official language of some of our closest Pacific neighbours (New Caledonia and French Polynesia) and of 59 nations around the world so is well worth learning.
French is fun: you learn through pair and group work, role plays, games, songs, competitions, movies, interactive technologies, and our blended online course books, Accès Studio and Studio 1. Food is a feature of the programme in the prizes, calendar events, and festivals.
