Adult classes


All our classes are focusing on communication skills and are taught by qualified native speakers.

Enrolment in our Winter classes is now closed.

Enrol now in our Spring Classes (16 April - 30 June).

- If you’re a complete beginner or a returning student, please fill in the enrolment form.

- If you’re a new student, and have a bit of French, even very basic knowledge, take our free online placement test. This written test will be followed by an informal 10-minute interview at the Institut français.
