Adult French Classes FAQs

List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • How do I know which level of French is right for me?

    The Alliance Française requires all new students to take a placement test. The test can be found here and usually takes 10–20 minutes to complete, depending on your level.
     
    Most students will receive their results upon completion of the test. Some students may be asked to complete a brief interview with Alliance Française staff to determine their level, especially for more advanced students or those who are between levels.
     
    For questions, please email Dmitri at DmitriL@FASPS.org.
  • I think my placement test result is incorrect. Can I take a different level class?

    To ensure a quality experience for all students, the Alliance Française is generally quite firm about students taking the level recommended by the placement test. This helps ensure that all students in a class are at about the same level, and no one feels too far ahead or behind their peers.
     
    If you have concerns about your placement result, please email Dmitri at DmitriL@FASPS.org to discuss your specific case.
  • What will I learn in the culture class? Who is this class aimed at?

    Classe culture is a discussion-based class taught in English. The goal of the class is to familiarize students with cultural topics and terms like food, geography, educational values, and more.
     
    Topics will vary each term, so you are welcome to take the class more than once, as the content will be different each time. It is not a sequential class, meaning that you can join the class in winter or spring trimester without having taken the fall trimester course.
     
    The class is open to anyone but was designed with FASPS’s new and non-Francophone families in mind to help them better understand the French cultural values that their students are learning at FASPS.
  • What if I don’t see my level of French offered?

    As a partner of the Alliance Française, FASPS community members are also able to take classes directly through the Alliance Française at the membership price! Click here to check out other levels of French language classes offered at the Alliance Française.
