Choosing a level

If you've never studied French before -> You can enrol in A1.1 - our complete beginner class (see schedule below).
If you have some French language skills -> Start by taking our mandatory level assessment.
Our pedagogical coordinator will then be in contact and have a chat with you to help to choose the best class for you.
Please note that we require an administrative fee (20% of the full term price) if a student who hasn't done a level assessment decides to change his class in the middle of the term.
