Adult French Courses

Discover our adult course program

The Alliance Française de Seattle offers a wide range of French courses for adults. Our classes generally take place at our Wallingford location, in the heart of Seattle. Given the COVID-19 context in Seattle, all of our classes are held online.

Our teaching staff is composed of highly qualified French instructors, holding degrees in teaching French as a foreign language.

We welcome all students of French and aim to offer fun and effective classes for your learning journey.

  • General French: an interactive method-based approach, following a textbook, for a regular learning pace of 1.5h x 2 weekly plus homework. The Saturday classes are 2.5h weekly. General French courses take place over 10 weeks. There are a few hybrid classes offering 20 hours of synchronous classes ("live" on Zoom) and 10 hours of asynchronous learning (self-study on the e-learning platform). Each level comprises three classes (e.g. A1.1, A1.2, A1.3, etc.). 
  • Specialized French: a more flexible approach with a special focus (e.g. grammar, reading, writing, oral communication, etc.) at a pace of 1.5 or 2h weekly. Specialized courses are organized in five-week sessions, allowing students to register for one or several sessions during the term.
  • Intensive Reviews: one-week intensive courses (12.5 or 15 hours on-site; 8 or 10 hours online) that allow you to review an entire level. Recommended once a student has reached the end of a level and/or before starting the next one, or as a refresher course. 
  • Workshops: our 90' to three-hour workshops are designed to cover a specific topic for a single session (pronunciation for beginners, informal French, French for travel, DELF Preparation, etc.).
  • Self-Study Reviews: available for levels A1 to B2. They can be with or without a tutor. Recommended at the end of a level, for review. The activities consist in modules to be completed on the e-learning platform. Learners are recommended to follow a path of 2-3 hours weekly over 10 weeks. The courses with a tutor comprise weekly office hours.
