We offer classes for adults, teens, and children at all levels. If you’ve studied French before, start by taking our free placement test. Registration opens 6 weeks before the beginning of the session.
From foundation or intensive, to conversational to review—there’s a class or workshop for every level—beginner to advanced.
Spring session is open for registration! Take a look at our complete class brochure here.
Most classes are currently held online but as the situation continues to improve, we are including some small, socially-distanced in-person classes in our building. Masks are required. Those classes are marked as “in-person”.
New this Spring: check out our virtual cooking classes!
Classes are available for youth and teens at all levels— ages 18 months through High School.
For information on after-school programs please click here.
If you’ve studied French in the past (no matter how long ago it may have been) or lived in a French-speaking community, please complete a placement test prior to registration in an AFMSP class. The Alliance Française staff will contact you for a conversational interview if necessary, and to notify you of your results.
