You've been looking for French classes but never found the time to get started before? This Summer, take the leap with
Alliance Française of Westchester! Our online classes will give you the opportunity to learn French at a comfortable pace, from the comfort
of your home.
If you would like to have fun learning French and making new friends, contact our team to find out more about our teaching philosophy!
Many people join Alliance Française of Westchester because they've learned French a long time ago, however we also have many complete beginners who start learning French with us every year. It's never too late to start learning a new skill, even if that skill is learning a foreign language! Our French classes for adults will provide a clear roadmap so you can make steady progress in French, no matter what your starting point is.
Our pedagogy is based on providing a fully immersive learning environment adapted to adults, so don't worry if you don't know where to start and let our teachers guide you in your learning journey. Our team focuses on teaching all 4 skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Our teachers also make it fun by not only teaching you about a language, but also about the cultures of various Francophone countries, so be prepared to immerse yourself into a whole new world!
Most adults learner need to rely on reading and writing in order to memorize new words and sentence structures, so our teachers will of course provide the possibility to do so, especially through homework and useful websites which you can explore at your own pace in order to get a broader understanding of French grammar rules. But during class time, the focus will be mostly on practice, pronunciation and conversation, as acquiring and refining those skills is much more difficult to do on your own. Our virtual classrooms will provide plenty of references and exercises you can use before and after lessons, and teachers will be available to answer any question you might have.
If you have never attended classes at AFW, you need to contact us before signing up for a class, so we can assess your level and find the ideal class for you. Unless you're a complete beginner, you also need to take our placement test. For all new AFW students, including complete beginners, an informal interview will be arranged before the first day of class in order for our team to gain a better understanding of learning goals which are most important to you.
Lessons schedule during our in-person Summer term will start from June 23 onward and will finish no later than September
More lessons will start from August 16 onward.
Our offices are closed from August 1st to 14, so no classes will be scheduled then and enrollment will not be possible at that time.
Adults are grouped depending on their level, but also depending on their personal learning goals. Groups need a minimum of 4 students for the schedule to be confirmed.
