Learn French with Us!

The Alliance Française is much more than a language school, it’s a community!

Our goal is to make people feel happy and excited to come meet new friends. The Alliance Française is your second home!

Our stimulating environment will give you multiple opportunities to practice your languages skills, and navigate new cultural spaces.
Our friendly staff and members will help you gain confidence in using the French language. All classes are conducted in French, giving you maximum exposure to fully practice the language. Indeed, our instructors are all native French speakers and certified professionals chosen for their impressive educational backgrounds and interpersonal skills.

Alliance teachers make each class a unique, productive, and enjoyable experience.

Whatever your level of French may be, you can progress with us in confidence. The AF offers a wide array of beginner to advanced and specialized courses. So whether your interests are linguistic, cultural or professional, we have a course for you.  We require a minimum of 4 students to open a course and enroll no more than 12 students per class. Our average class size is 6 students — an impressive student to teacher ratio.

Students enrolled in classes for one session or more, receive a complimentary annual, basic individual membership through the Alliance. Benefits include borrowing privileges from our multimedia library and Culturethèque.

Feel free to contact us if you experience any issue regarding your registration, we will be happy to help you register over the phone.
