Discover New Caledonia like a French

French shopping

« Un croissant » ? « Un plateau de fruit de mer » ? New Caledonia is an ideal destination if you want to learn and practice French. From designer boutiques to cozy cafés, you will love ordering “un petit café noir” thanks to the language skills you will have mastered. 

Touring and learning

If you go on a guide excursion around Grande Terre or on the Loyalty Islands, don't hesitate to ask your guide for explanations in French. It's a great way to practice your language skills! Train your ear as you discover New Caledonia's southern landscapes or as you learn about endemic plants.

French is in the air

French is New Caledonia’s official language. Whether you decide to stay in a tribal village or a 5-star hotel, knowing some French is an undeniable plus when it comes to communicating with locals. Bringing a dictionary along is always a good idea, though most New Caledonians know some basic English.
