10 experiences you can have in Sydney if you speak French
France is one of those destinations that seems to be on everybody’s bucket list. But of course, Belgium, Canada, and Australia’s nearby neighbour New Caledonia are French-speaking as well. And given how many French words permeate English discourse, being able to pronounce them accurately gives one hell of a classy impression. All are great reasons to enrol in a French class at the Alliance Française this spring, but they’re not the only reasons. The ten Sydney experiences below are ones that only Francophones can enjoy (although admittedly enthusiastic beginners can get something out of most of them too). So if you want to get in on the Gallic action, classes at the Alliance Française (in the CBD or Chatswood) start at $18 an hour – and Time Out readers can get a 10 per cent discount when purchasing a course on the website and entering the discount code FRENCHYTIMEOUT. All teachers are native French speakers and use the latest technology and teaching methods, with an average of just 12 students per class. The new round of courses starts on October 24, and includes easy-going courses, intensive courses, beginners, refreshers and kids’ courses, and even private tuition.
O Bar & Dining's new range of natural cocktails
O Bar & Dining are the latest to blaze the trail of 'au naturel' cocktails. Sugary cocktails are passé; these days it's more about the good stuff. We’re talking cocktails using natural ingredients, healthy sugar alternatives and ripe seasonal produce. Basically, treating yourself but without the guilt. Chef, Michael Moore, has teamed up with the bar crew to create a menu of hedonistic but health-conscious summer cocktails, using the same process that chefs use to develop new dishes. The O team have tasted, smelt and blended ingredients to create unique pairings of traditional and contemporary flavours. Try Healthy Culture – sweet, ripe melon with fennel tips, fair trade quinoa vodka, woodland honey and wild lime kombucha. Or Trail Mix, a pistachio crème and toasted almond cocktail made with honey bourbon, Turkish dates, nutmeg, ginger and clove bitters and walnut liqueur. Then there's Japan in Bloom, a pomegranate and ruby grapefruit cocktail made with Kakubin Japanese whisky, blossom water, wild rose and Peychaud bitters. And really, is there any better way to enjoy a cocktail than perched on the 47th floor of Australia Square with ever-unfolding 360° views?
