Learn French in a small group in DC or Alexandria
Quality tailor made to your needs
During our many years of teaching, we observed that in some schools, classes are very full and impersonal. This makes it hard for students to learn well and generally the ones who need the most attention do not receive it.
To avoid this and make sure everyone progresses fast and well, we offer very small group classes (3-6 people). In this setting, the teacher tailors the class to student needs.
Our group classes are over 8 or 10 week sessions, so they can easily fit in your schedule. With small groups, we progress better and faster, making every session very effective.
Class size and individual attention
No more than 6 people, which is especially important for beginners. Many schools have 12 or more in beginner courses, depriving especially those that need it most of the special attention they need.
The success of every student is very important to us. We give you individual advice, homework to reinforce your skills that we take time to correct at home, and grammar sheets if necessary.
What level should you start with?
All our levels match the CEFR: (Common European Framework for Languages), so it's easy for you to know where you should start. If you don't know your level yet, we can also assess you in a short (phone) interview. If you are a beginner, it's easy: just start at Survival 1l!
A1: beginners (Survival 1, 2 and 3)
A2: elementary (Survival 4 and 5; conversation and grammar classes)
B1: intermediate (conversation and grammar classes)
B2, C1, C2: operational and advanced (Conversation and Perfect your French Classes)
Before taking a class or lesson, we’ll give you a free assessment (via email) to determine your current proficiency and to help pick the right course for you. During the class, you’ll get regular assessments and feedback to make sure you progress. At the end of the class, you will have an extensive evaluation.
