SIGN UP FOR OUR FALL SESSION 2020 !
Due to the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak in the USA and the directives of the state of Pennsylvania, the Alliance Française de Philadelphie is now offering courses online.
What is an online class? An online class is a live video conference with your instructor and fellow students that will follow the usual format and syllabus.
How does it work? The Alliance Francaise de Philadelphie is using Zoom for all the virtual classes. In addition to that, students and instructors can find their own class on a platform called Apolearn. It very much looks like a Facebook page: Your contacts are your instructor and your classmates. Functions include activity feed, sharing resources and articles, and an online chat. Students can also practice and do their homework, record their voices and videos (recordings are private and are not used "outside" the class)
What do I need? A computer with a webcam and a microphone, an internet connexion. Please click here to learn the basics of an online class!
We are offering free placement tests to students willing to enroll in the fall session. Please complete this form so we can schedule a phone placement test.
We look forward to welcoming you during our virtual classes
