    • Saturday, September 19, 2015
    • 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
    • Alliance Française, 1420 Walnut Street, suite 700, Philadelphia

    10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Lunch included). Immersion Courses represent six hours of intensive work with one subject area and are geared toward conversation with reviews of grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary.
    Four levels of classes are offered on the same day: beginner, basic, intermediate and advanced.
    If you have never had French before your level is beginner.
    If you are enrolled in a class at the Alliance Française, you can find your level easily:
    101 = beginner
    102-106 = basic
    201-206 = intermediate
    301+ = advanced
    If you have never taken an immersion or regular class with us, and you are not a beginner, you will need to take a placement test to find your level. The placement test can be taken online (you can find the link on the courses page of our website) or you can call our office (215-735-5283) or stop by our office in person and take the placement test that way.

    The cost is $150. Call now to reserve a space at 215 735-5283.

    These classes are very popular. Register early!
