Focus on French

Most linguists agree that studying a language—especially in the beginning—requires daily practice and engagement with the target language. While the majority of our classes are one to two days per week, you can take advantage of our diverse cultural calendar by attending Meet and Greets, cinema nights, cooking workshops, game nights, and more—tout en français !

Please review our updated COVID-19 protocols for on-site classes and events.
Some events such as Ciné-Club, are being held safely,  outdoors at the Alliance.
Please email Events Coordinator, Joseph Pons for more information!
