Learning French at Flinders has been an absolute pleasure. The staff are helpful and supportive, while encouraging students to strive for excellence and to embrace French culture beyond campus. The learning resources and classroom facilities are world-class, and Flinders is partnered with universities all across France! Through our French students' association, French at Flinders, we organised movie nights and festival celebrations in collaboration with the Alliance Française in Adelaide, along with fun language exchange activities with French exchange students.
The absolute highlight of my French studies at Flinders, though, was undoubtedly the two-week trip to New Caledonia funded by the Government's New Colombo Plan. Learning about Kanak culture and regional sociolinguistics, partying with the Consul-General and his diplomatic network, and indulging in croissants and macarons in the middle of the Pacific - C'est parfait, non?
