Learn French

Alliance Française de Grosse Pointe

Apprenez le français

Have you always wished you could learn French and immerse yourself in the language and culture? Did you take French “back in the day” in high school or college and need a refresher? Or do you just miss the conversation practice and would like to improve your skills?

Whatever your reasons, we can help you reach your goal.

Our classes are set up with use of target language in mind, without the pressures of a college class, in a convivial and supportive atmosphere. Check out the four different levels we offer and join us!

If you are not sure where you fit, email us and we will help you with the placement process.
