The focus of the first lessons will be communication. Our aim will be to ensure you feel comfortable with spoken French right from the beginning of our work together.

Feedback from Students
Susan Astor-Smith, Director of public relations, Sydney – October 2015:
I spent six weeks in Paris in late 2015 and during that time had twice weekly lessons of two hours each with Florence Harang at French à la Carte. While I had already been learning French for some time in Sydney, the lessons I had with Florence improved my pronunciation, vocabulary and fluency greatly. Florence was flexible, creative and professional in her teaching methods. She quickly identified my areas of interest and built her lessons around these. I highly recommend Florence and French à la Carte and look forward to continuing lessons with her on my next extended visit to Paris.
