1. What does a French class at Alliance Française look like?

At the Alliance, all our classes are serious AND fun. Our students benefit from smaller groups (12 students max per class), making it easier to practice and giving everyone the opportunity to speak. All our teachers are native speakers and fully qualified. We use the latest teaching methods and technologies, including interactive whiteboards.

2. When are the classes?

We offer term courses, holiday courses and special ponctual workshops.
Our term courses are 9 or 10 weeks long and classes are held once a week, usually in the morning or in the evening. Although we recommend to follow the whole duration of a course, it is possible to join a course during the term (except for complete beginners and other special courses).
Our holiday courses happen during the break in between each term. Classes are usually held everyday for a week or two.

2018 Term dates for adults:

Term 1 courses: 11 weeks ► 29th of January - 13th of April
Term 2 courses: 10 weeks 30th of April- 06th of July
