Begin your French language journey with our Adult Beginner classes. If you have never learned French you should start with Beginner A1.
If you have studied French before, you can take our placement test which will help pointing your level of French and find the perfect class for you.
Our classes are small, 3 – 7 students. Classes are held once a week.

You are a “false beginner”, i.e. you have some prior, but very basic, knowledge of the language, and find it difficult to produce more than a few key words and phrases. Maybe you haven’t used the language in a while and/or want to start at ‘the beginning’. You have a very basic knowledge of the language.
