About the Tutors

Gaetan Augustin – I was born in Mauritius and French was the language of my childhood until arriving in Australia at the age of 13.

I teach simple French phrases to assist students to navigate French speaking countries or just for the fun of learning something new. My class consists of those who wish to refresh schoolbook French or have never learnt French before in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Marie Davidson – I am a French student at UNE Armidale and studying it for my own satisfaction. I have always been a Francophile ever since studying French at High School.

Our beginners class has two stages, the first hour where we learn about the grammar and the second hour, where we listen to French news to attune our ears to the language.
In both classes students are encouraged to ask questions about anything! including French!

We are quite happy to take anyone who comes along at any time though most of our present students continue on from Gaetan’s French Conversation class which is just before ours. We are a really friendly bunch and looking forward to seeing some new faces this term
