Registration & Class level

We require all prospective students with previous experience studying French or living in a French speaking country to take a placement test to determine their appropriate level before registering. The placement test will be a quick interview in French with one of our instructors who will then recommend a class.

In person placement tests during the registration period will be held at the Alliance on September 6th & 7th (12:00-2:00 PM & 4:00-6:00 PM) and September 8th (12:00-3:00 PM).

If you are a beginning student (101 level) or know your level and course time please download and fill out the STUDENT REGISTRATION FORM and return it to us via email at


Enrollment is contingent upon advanced payment for course and materials. To be eligible for a refund, student must contact the office at least 24 hours before the first class. After the first class, only a credit for the next session will be issued (a $30.00 cancellation fee plus $30.00 per class is retained by the Alliance Fran├žaise). No credit is issued after the end of the 3rd week of classes.

*courses will meet for 1 1/2 hours if there are 3 or 4 students; if there are 2 students, the course will become semi-private and meets for an hour once a week.

Immersion classes

We also offer one-day immersion classes throughout each session. These courses represent six hours of intensive work within one subject area and are geared toward conversation with reviews of grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary. The cost is $150 and includes lunch and materials. Advanced payment is needed to retain reservation. To be eligible for a refund, students must contact the office at least 24 hours prior to the Immersion course.
