Adult French Classes

It's Never Too Late to Learn French!

FASPS Partners With the Alliance Française

FASPS partners with the Alliance Francaise of Seattle three times per year to offer a series of adult French classes after school. Classes are offered at FASPS, are taught by a FASPS community member, and are open to parents, friends, and members of the local community! We offer all three levels of adult French classes (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) each trimester of the school year. Each class will meet once a week, as the limitations of the school calendar permit.
