Understanding course levels

The Alliance Française de La Nouvelle-Orléans follows the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for language acquisition progression. Our curriculum is carefully designed to follow the CEFR's guidelines, ensuring that you acquire language skills in a logical and progressive manner. As you advance through our courses, you'll notice your language abilities developing from basic communication to advanced fluency.

By adhering to the CEFR, we can employ proven teaching methods and strategies that have been fine-tuned to enhance your learning experience. You can expect a well-rounded curriculum that covers all language aspects, including speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

Global Recognition

One of the key advantages of learning through the CEFR is its global recognition. Your proficiency level, as determined by the CEFR, is a valuable asset that can be understood and acknowledged by educational institutions, employers, and language learners worldwide. It provides you with a universally accepted reference point for your French language skills.
