At the Alliance Française, our very popular general French classes will allow you to develop all five skills: speaking, interacting, listening, reading and writing; and provides you with a wealth of intercultural insight.

Through specific communication objectives and interactive activities, you will progress from basic communication situations to more complex interactions, where you must organize your ideas in order to inform, explain, narrate, convince, argue, or speak in public.

Our classes are based on the recommendations of the CEFR (the Common European Framework for Languages), a standard reference adopted by dozens of educational systems worldwide. We used in that regards the textbook Alter Ego +, éditions Hachette FLE.

NEW in 2019: Alliance Française adopted in 2019 a new textbook for its French classes: Cosmopolite from Hachette, leader in French as Second Language materials publishing. It is a modern communication-based method with exciting new topics and up-to-date documents.
Mp3 audios, videos, and additional exercises/activities through the Parcours Digital are available online:
