The Alliance Francaise of Greater Orlando is now offering online adult French classes via Zoom.
Our Zoom classes work exactly like a regular class. Your teacher is with you, teaching you step by step, answering all your questions, and the classroom dynamics are as interesting and intense as they would be in an ordinary setting.
Classes for adults are planned to suit your busy schedule, Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, and are scheduled according to the availabilities of both students and teachers.
Classes are held in private, semi-private or small groups (4 to 8 students). The class duration is typically 1.5 hours for private and semi-private lessons, and 2 hours for small groups.
Our sessions start throughout the year according to the number of registered students and offer an optimal flexibility to maximize learning opportunities.
At AFGO, we use French or bilingual manuals, specific learning tools especially conceived by our French teachers, as well as other material such as books, newspapers, movies, CDs, computer-based resources, and music.
We focus on your individual level.
There will be no assessment test for complete beginners.
