Regular Classes

We start planning for a partial re-opening for some on-site classes and events starting September 2021.  Some classes and events will also be offered online. Official announcements will be made by the beginning of August.  Merci de votre patience! 


Alliance Française de Philadelphie offers French classes all year round.  We have four 10-week sessions per year  during fall, winter, spring, & summer.

Our general French classes meet once a week for 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on class size and the level of classes ranges from A1 to C2. We limit the number of students in our classes to 8 students maximum. 

We currently offer online classes, taught by highly qualified French instructors.

NEW STUDENTS - We require all prospective students with previous experience studying French or living in a French speaking country to take a placement test to determine their appropriate level before registering.

Placement Test Placement Test

The placement test takes between 15-20 minutes to complete.
Once we receive the results of your placement test, one of our professors will contact you directly for a quick conversation in French. They will then let you know your level and schedule options for your course.

If you are a complete beginner (101 level) or know your level and course time please download and fill out the student registration form and return it to us via email at alliance@afphila.com.
