General French Classes


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

Through specific action-based 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 hundreds of educational systems worldwide.

Alliance Française is using a modern textbook for its group 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:  https://cosmopolite.hachettefle.fr/
