French Classes

Aside from the bilingual program at KHPS, FANS also offers French classes for high school students and adults, run by native French-speaking qualified teachers. You have to be a member of the association to participate.

You must enrol for a minimum of two terms. For all CNED lessons, we ask families to commit to a full school year*.

Classes are being held in Forestville.

  • DELF French classes for students – For students from Year 7 to Year 11. There are different levels of DELF/DALF
  • French CNED classes for students – These classes are for students with a French level of 4ième
  • French classes for adults – French lessons for beginner and beginner advanced adults

FANS is in process of organising classes for pre-schoolers. These classes will be aimed at children who are too young to start kindergarten but whose families are interested to get an early start in French in preparation to integrating the bilingual program at KHPS.

*Fees are payable at the beginning of every term. We need to receive a written notification at least 3 weeks prior to the end of a term if participation is discontinued the following term or a term’s fees are due.

Francophone students – DELF/DALF classes levels

Should your child wish to study at a French university, they will need the DELF B2 diploma to enrol. The DELF/DALF diplomas are recognised worldwide and exams can be taken once a year at the Alliance Française in Sydney.

There are different levels of the diploma and it is NOT necessary to take every one.

This level recognises basic knowledge. It is the most basic level at which a language is used, called the “discovery” stage. At this stage, the learner can interact in a simple way: he/she can speak about him/herself and his/her immediate environment.
DELF A2 is based on the same principle: it recognises the linguistic competency of a basic user, considered as a social actor. The candidate can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring the most common polite phrases and exchanges of information.
At this level, the user becomes independent. He/she can maintain interaction: he/she can understand and maintain a discussion and give his/her opinion. He/she is capable of dealing with situations likely to arise in daily life.
A B2 user has a degree of independence that allows him/her to construct arguments to defend his/her opinion, explain his/her viewpoint and negotiate. At this level, the candidate has a degree of fluency and spontaneity in regular interactions and is capable of correcting his/her own mistakes.
Language users at level C1 are independent. They can express themselves fluently and spontaneously. They have a large vocabulary and can choose the appropriate expression to introduce their comments. They can produce clear, well-structured discourse without hesitation and which shows controlled use of structures.
C2 users’ proficiency in the language is illustrated by precision, appropriateness and fluency of expression. C2 candidates are capable of using the language for academic and advanced-level purposes.
