French Language Classes in Denver, Boulder & Evergreen

The Alliance Française offers French classes in a friendly, intimate setting, with a class size of between 5 to 12 students. All Alliance Française staff of instructors are native French-speakers or instructors who meet our qualification for native fluency. The instructors emphasize conversation and use a contextual approach to language learning, while conducting the classes almost entirely in French to maximize each student’s opportunity to practice. Language classes at the Alliance Française cover 3 levels: Beginner (101-104), Intermediate (201-204) and Advanced (301-304).
