We offer a wide range of levels from Beginner to Advanced French classes. The Alliance Française organizes its teaching on the most modern teaching methods and on the CEFR (the Common European Framework for Languages), a standard reference adopted by hundreds of educational systems worldwide. The Alliance Française uses Interactive Projectors, a powerful tool to improve student’s learning and offer an interactive experience.

Children are naturals at learning a language: their lack of inhibition and adaptability makes it easier for them to pick up sounds and words. As a parent, you are giving your child a life-long advantage by exposing them to a foreign language at an early age. Besides providing a head start for their future language learning, they benefit from a proven boost in scholastic performance in other subject areas.

We offer quality teaching promoting excellence with dynamic method of teaching French and recognized high quality programs, which will guarantee to your child good opportunities: for further studies, and to obtain diplomas. When taking classes of French at Alliance Française de Vancouver, your child gets access to contents and objectives leading to the DELF examination.

Did you know? DELF certification qualifies for external credits under the BC Ministry of Education (grades 10 to 12).

Testimonies


  • I signed up for French courses at Alliance Française in Vancouver to try to improve my rusty and inadequate schoolboy French to enable me to handle and better enjoy business trips and family holidays in France. The courses have been great: challenging but not daunting, hugely interesting, and designed to get you speaking, understanding, reading and writing good French as quickly as possible. The materials and methods used are excellent, aimed at an adult audience, and have greatly enhanced my knowledge of France and French people at the same time as rapidly improving my French language skills. I have found my teachers to be friendly, empathetic, experienced professionals and the whole Alliance Française experience has been a positive one for me - I can't recommend Alliance Française highly enough, or wait for my next trip to France to hear my French friends tell me how much my language skills have improved.

  • I've been taking french classes since 2009. My lessons are always dynamic and well structured. I appreciate my teacher's expertise and ability to adopt the lesson to my needs. We work in a relaxed atmosphere where I can learn at my own pace. To me, learning a new language it's not only about attending the classes and doing your homework diligently. It's a whole lot more then that. I'm excited to have access to a nice collection of french movies, books, CDs and magazines. The staff members are great and encouraging. (If you want to get a hint of an authentic french atmosphere and learn a bit more about french culture this is the right place to come).
