The Alliance Française de St. Louis offers adult French classes by instructors of native language proficiency. Classes are available for students of all levels, from complete beginners on up.

To Enroll

If you have never taken French before, please contact us and ask about the next complete beginners class. We typically open a new complete beginners class every twelve weeks.

If you have some experience with French, please take our online placement test first. We will reach out to you as soon as we receive your results and determine what classes best suit you.

Tuition

Adult classes are enrolled and priced in six-week sessions. Classes meet once per week, and most are two hours in duration. In addition to the cost of tuition, you will need to purchase the textbook for the course. Our textbooks run $50 and come with an exercise workbook; textbooks will last you through an entire course level (approximately 1 year).

As the Alliance Française is a membership-based organization, an annual membership to the Alliance Française is also required to enroll for classes.
