Regular Classes


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).

NB: Not all classes participate in the ApoLearn program.

What do I need? A computer with a webcam and a microphone, an internet connexion.

** Early bird discount is applicable on 10 week sessions only


Four ten week sessions per year (Fall, Winter, Spring, & Summer).

Evening and Morning classes.

Students meet once a week for 10 weeks for 1.5-2 hours depending on class size.

Classes taught by highly qualified French instructors.

Adult classes offered for all levels of French, from A1 to C2.

No more than 8 students per online class.


2020 - 2021 SESSION DATES


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.
