Language WALKshop: A taste of French… from the 'Paris End of Collins St'

  • Meeting point: in front of Collins Quarter 86 Collins Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Flâner dans les rues de Melbourne…

There is no perfect translation of the French word flâner in English, but it suggests the idea of leisurely strolling in the city simply to enjoy its beauty. A wonderful concept, n’est-ce pas?

Join us for this 1.5 hour lunchtime French WALKshop where we will flâner and faire du lèche-vitrines (do some window shopping) from the ‘Paris End of Collins Street’ through to the iconic Royal Arcade. As we wander through these beautiful parts of Melbourne’s CBD, you will be encouraged to use your French as we talk about Melbourne’s café culture, shopping and our immediate urban surroundings.

This ‘walking workshop’ is intended to be a fun and active language learning experience in a real-life context, where the elements of the city’s environment serve as prompts to talk about and describe different things in French that you might not usually cover in your regular learning space. You will be provided with some printed materials on useful vocabulary and phrases for the session and the WALKshop hosts will be there to support you along the way.

This small group session is open to French learners of all levels.

The WALKshop will be led by Nicole from French with Nicole, an experienced French teacher and lover of all things French, supported by Rebecca from Irregular Endings.

When: Sunday 14th April, 11am-12.30pm

Where: Melbourne CBD – meet in front of Collins Quarter (86 Collins Street, Melbourne VIC 3000)

What’s included: 1.5 hour experience to practise French in the Melbourne CBD led by Nicole from French with Nicole and printed WALKshop materials on useful vocabulary for the session

Tickets: $40 per person
