Children's Classes



Children's classes


A world leader in teaching French to adults, the Alliance Française applies the same expertise to Children's classes.

Leading Alliance chapters in the United States teamed up with French experts to design French curricula and activities specifically catered to the needs and interests of little – and not so little – ones.

Whereas most programs rely on repetitive workshops with limited material, the Alliance Française offers children the possibility of evolving through 3 levels (complete beginners to advanced) for each of 4 age groups. Unlimited options are yours to discover, so you can shape your child's experience with the help of true specialists.

Striking the balance between fun and serious, the extensive program offers rigorous academic objectives while entertaining children with games, activities and cultural immersion.



French For Bilingual CE-CM
These classes are intended for children enrolled in American public/private schools, who wish to try their hand at following the current French program in France’s elementary schools. 

The instructors are using materials adopted by the French Ministry of Education, which reinforce the four aspects of language learning: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

The classes can also serve as remediation courses for Francophone students attending local French-American schools.
