With 'Douce France', France is just next door.

So, you are at the right place to Learn French!


Douce France, is a French Language Centre run by our French family since 2013 and located in Wadeville (near Nimbin), in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of NSW.

Surrounded within 5 acres of subtropical vegetation, our French learners evolve in a convivial, sustainable and family atmosphere on-site. This is a unique opportunity for a French getaway without the jet lag. Join in games, role-plays and hands-on activities... all in French of course!

We aim to:

  • facilitate your French Learning journey

  • boost your French (before your exam or your trip to France)

  • immerse yourself in the French language and culture

If you can't make it to our place, we have you covered too. We offer online tuition via Zoom and will develop a wider range of online programs, so that you can learn French where and when you want.       


Coucou, I'm Aurélie, the French teacher at Douce France.

I am a qualified teacher with 15+ years' teaching experience both in Australian bilingual schools and with Alliance Française, a French organisation whose aim is to promote the French language worldwide. 

As a French native, I know what it takes to learn another language and how frustrating it can be at times.


From my teaching and personal experience, I have developed a method that will facilitate your French learning journey. It follows gradual milestones, a logical/simplified approach to the French language as well as insights on the French culture.

With Method, Fun and Confidence, you will soon be able to speak French like hundreds of learners I had the pleasure to help!
