Corporate Classes

Every year 500,000 students in 136 countries worldwide look to Alliance Française for quality French language education. Alliance Française of Minneapolis/St. Paul is a non-profit, French cultural center and has been serving the Twin Cities since the 1920s.

AFMSP has provided on-site corporate programs businesses across the Metro area. Our clients include US State Department, Polaris, Target Corporation, General Mills Corporation, Aveda Corporation, and many others.


Our native speaking instructors have professional training and use an immersion-style, communicative approach which allows for results from Day 1. We recommend that Beginner and Intermediate students work with a textbook designed for French for professionals. Classes are tailored to suit your business and staff’s needs and goals. Your special requests are welcome. Class size is limited to 10 students for maximum results.

For complete beginners, we recommend 150 hours of instruction to reach the intermediate level; for intermediate students, 150 hours to reach the advanced level.

Alliance Française students benefit from:

  • clear learning objectives, adhering to a ‘global scale’ (CECR)
  • more effective preparation of exams (TEF) and diplomas
  • professional instructors with experience
  • enhanced understanding of their needs


Our nonprofit status allows us to offer the most cost-effective pricing in the Metro area while delivering the high-quality cultural and educational experience from the international Alliance Française network.

If you have any questions regarding corporate classes or would like to request a proposal, please contact Education Director Alix Lewis-Sadrant or 612 332 0436.
