For Young Learners

— Overview—

The Alliance Française provides instruction based on an effective cultural and communicative approach that integrates all four language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking). Our curriculum follows the guidelines of the FRAMES (FRench-AMerican Educational Standards) program, which means that our instructors have followed professional development workshops on the latest standards and techniques.
All classes provide the language skills to meet the DELF Prim and the DELF Junior exams requirements.
