Our French language classes are designed for students with little to no background in French, and our engaging, professional teachers will be there to guide you every step of the way. We offer classes that meet once or twice a week, allowing you to learn French at the level and pace that serves you best.
Over the course of your enrollment, you can expect to learn basic vocabulary and conversational topics, practice French pronunciation, and form sentences using the present tense.
Materials are not included in the cost of the class and are generally available in the $10 – $40 range. The textbook for this course, Voilà (3rd Edition), may be purchased online from Amazon or at the retailer of your choice.
