DO YOU HAVE ANY SOCIAL ACTIVITIES WHERE I CAN PRACTICE MY FRENCH?

In addition to classes, many of the Café groups sponsored by the Alliance Française de Denver will help you meet people with similar interests practice French in a casual, relaxing environment. We also offer many social events and workshops, some entirely in French. All are a lot of fun!



DO I NEED TO SPEAK FRENCH TO ATTEND EVENTS AND CLASSES AT THE ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE DE DENVER?

For workshops and classes please refer to the description of level and requirements included in the catalogue.
All cultural events are suitable for non French speakers, unless they are categorized as En français uniquement.



HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO BECOME FLUENT IN FRENCH?

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Becoming fluent in a language is an ongoing process. At the Alliance Française de Denver, we provide you with the tools to use your French from day 1, in real life situations. Our objective is simple: to help you become independent and experience the rewards of using what you’ve learned and practiced with us in any French-speaking part of the world.



HOW DO I DETERMINE MY CLASS LEVEL?

If you never took French before, we invite you to register for our beginner level classes. If you already know or speak some French, we recommend you take our free placement test. One of our instructors will then contact you in order to find the best class for you, based on your needs and availability.
