    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:

    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.

    The next Fall Immersion Courses are on October 18 and November 15. These classes are very popular. Register early!

    Taste French Wine like a Pro !

    In this course, we'll demystify the often confusing world of French wine to help you choose and enjoy French wines with ease. Whether you're new to wine tasting or already a confirmed taster, you'll learn an effective approach that will enhance your appreciation of wine in general.

    With guidance from a Franco-American sommelier, you'll awaken your senses and develop your memory of aromas and tastes as you learn an objective method of identifying the quality and aging potential of the French wines you taste. The course also covers the basics of how wine is produced, the French appellation (AOC) system, and the different French wine regions. Our sommelier will keep the atmosphere convivial, never snobby. 

    The course meets once a week for two hours for three weeks. You'll taste five fine French wines during each session, served along with a selection of bread, charcuterie and French cheese. 

    You'll learn how to:

    • identify the quality and aging potential of French wines
    • read and understand a French wine label
    • match wine with different types of food
    • conserve wines effectively
    • choose and purchase wines at a restaurant or wine shop with confidence
    • serve French wine so you and your guests get the most enjoyment 
    and much more!

    Maximum 10 students; $300 for AF members and students; $350 for non-members.
