Whether you would like to learn to communicate in French or to maintain your skills in the language, our classes are for you. We offer classes for beginners up to advanced level students. Most of our tutors are native-French speakers and are trained in language instruction. All students have access to our library of French books, CDs and DVDs. We have the most extensive collection in the region. We also offer special language classes for people planning to travel to France or other French-speaking countries. Wouldn't your travels to these places be more enjoyable if you could speak to the locals in their own language?

Alliance Française de Toowoomba Inc. Refund Policy 1. No refund will be provided to students who miss classes/decide to discontinue once payment has been received. 2. Classes are organised in advance to ensure teacher availability and are based on student enrolments. Students dropping out of classes after commencement would make the class unviable and disadvantage those remaining for the entirety of Term. Furthermore we do not have the administrative capacity, nor are we able to cover the high cost associated with refunds. 3. As we are unsure when classes are scheduled in future terms, we cannot provide credit towards classes. We thank you for your understanding.
