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. Classes are enrolled and priced in six-week sessions. Classes meet once per week, and most are two hours.

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 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.

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