You had French in the past?

Students who are new to the Alliance Française but who have taken French courses before or have spent time in a French speaking country must take an informal placement test at the time of Registration, or online (In order to ensure a more accurate placement, the online placement test will be followed by a quick interview with a French instructor who will recommend a class).

Placement test during the registration will be on November 30 and December 1st  from noon to 2 pm and from 4 to 6 pm, on Saturday December 2nd from noon to 3 pm.

If you are unable to come, please schedule a placement test over the phone!



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 Française). 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.
