  • Our courses are focused on conversational French with active participation in classes limited to 6 to 12 students. They are based on interactive activities to make learning French a fun and successful experience.

  • Our teaching philosophy is in line with the CEFRL (Common European Framework of reference for Languages), the premier international standard adopted by the best language schools around the world. The Alliance Française centers are the only language schools worldwide accredited by the French government.

  • Our experienced and qualified teachers remain at your service throughout your learning process. They will speak as much French as possible in the classroom to immerse yourself with the language.

  • Students have opportunities to practice French outside of the classroom through our cultural events. The Alliance Française is offering an  immersive French experience: from learning French to speaking Fench with many different people during our cultural activities

  • Our group courses start at $14/hour (and our courses are tax-deductible).
