Hi All

Am soon to be expat.(mid year next year) Did a little basic french at school many years ago. Will probably be in the north area. Any advice on where I could attend classes or is it better to do something local in South Africa before I leave. My feeling was to rather be on the island and experience the language.



I'm becoming an expat in the next gewr weeks and would be interested inconvetsational French lessons. Like VIncent my level is also from school


Hello everyone,

You can drop an advert in the following section of the website : Language classes in Mauritius

Is the best thing that should do  :happy:

Best of luck,

Hi everyone,

I am researching if there is any interest among expats (or anyone else) to see if you would like to learn conversational french, starting with beginner lessons. It will also be designed so that you can meet other expats, converse with local businesses, and have fun at the same time. I am wanting to set up a classroom setting a few days a week but I need to understand what days/times would work for most people.

Please message me on this board so that we can discuss and see what works for you.


We are planning to move to Mauritius and I would love something like that's

Hi, I am an expat in Mauritius been here for a while now. It has been pretty difficult to "learn conversational french". This initiative is very much welcomed for people like me. Hopefully there will be more update on this.......

We're hoping to arrive at the beginning of next year, and I would definitely be interested in conversational French lessons.  I'll be watching this thread with interest :)


If ever you are in the North, I would like to join in.


Thanks everyone for your replies!  At this stage, I'm trying to see if we can gain enough interest to start something. If we decide to, it will be next year, which is not too far away!

I am working on getting a location to hold the classes, teachers, and a work plan in the meantime.

Another important question I have is, what days/times would work for everyone? Do you all work during the week? Would Saturday mid-morning classes work for you (3 hour class) or do you prefer an evening class during the week? I'm not sure what expat's schedules are. Please give me as much info as possible so that I can build a plan that can help lots of people.

Thanks everyone!

Cara - Thanks for your reply! When are you planning on moving to MRU? I will updating this thread as much as possible, so please stay tuned.

Hi everyone, for those that expressed interest in learning French/Creole in Mauritius, we are currently still planning the course. Please keep in mind that this course will be offered mid next year. This course will be to learn "conversational french/creole" and will be two separate classes. It will be a great opportunity to meet other expats, socialize, and learn the native languages, taught by native Mauritians.

The classes will most likely be in the evening and then a short Saturday class as well.

I plan to have the website up by the end of the year so people can sign up and get on our email list for more information and to stay informed. Thanks everyone! Please subscribe to this board in the meantime if you want to see updates.


Hi....I think that it will also depend on factors like...are we allowed to bring the kids along or not. Especially if your new in Mauritius and don't know a lot of people yet with who you can leave the kids.

Amostorbeck, yes I totally understand as I have a little one as well. This is something that we will consider in our planning because it is important, please continue to monitor this board so that you will be aware of any updates until the website/newsletter is up and running (end of year). Thanks!

We are a family of 4, kids aged 9 and 12 and we all want to do lessons together. We will stay in the North x
