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
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.
