Small VIRTUAL groups, experienced native French-speaking teachers, and dynamic content make learning French at Alliance Française de San Diego engaging and interactive. Students can further enrich their learning experience through our various cultural programs offered to our students and members.
24-hours of instructions are provided over 14 weeks of a typical semester that allows learners to approach the language contextually through varying practical solutions. Shorter sessions are available as well.
These courses can be combined with Thematic classes or Private Classes to strengthen specific skills in reaching a higher level of French language education.
