At the Alliance Française of Edmonton, the most popular class is a general French acquisition class, following a textbook framework. It will allow you to develop all five skills: speaking, listening, reading, writing and interacting; and provides you with a wealth of intercultural insight. Through specific communication objectives and interactive activities, you will progress from basic communication situations to more complex interactions, where you must organize your ideas in order to inform, explain, narrate, convince, argue, or speak in public, etc.

Our classes are based on the recommendations of the CEFRL (the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), a standard reference adopted by dozens of educational systems worldwide. We use in that regards the textbook Alter Ego +, for all levels, or Nouvel Edito for more advanced users. Classes are 2 hours twice a week (24-hour sessions) or 3 hours once a week (18-hour sessions). See our schedule and register to French classes 

These specialized courses give you an opportunity to focus on a specific aspect of the French language with classes outside of the textbook in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our specialized classes include:

-Grammar classes
-Conversation classes
-Intercation and role play classes
-Drama classes

Our classes are seperated in four major levels: A1, A2, B1, B2 Within these levels we have sub-levels. If you are unsure about your level you can take the online placement test and contact us to make an appointment for an oral placement test. The oral placement test is free and lasts about 10-15 minutes. Afterwards we will recommend you the best classes for you based on your goals and level.
