Our French General courses offer you the opportunity to learn French with qualified native French teachers in small class-groups (maximum of 15 students) in order to work on the four kinds of language activities:
- Reception (listening and reading)
- Production (spoken and written)
and to practise French through a diverse range of activities and projects, to sit the European DELF exams in order to officially assess your level of French using internationally recognised standards and the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL).
I have been attending Alliance Française for a long number of years and it never fails to give first-rate teaching, encouragement and pleasure in all things French.
I really look forward to my weekly class at Alliance. Fun, laughter and great friendships. Teachers amazing and full of encouragement
What brings me back year after year to Alliance Française is not just the chance to improve my French but to share in cultural experiences with other students. That hidden gem in the Corbières that served ‘souris d’agneau’ or a little gîte to rent on the banks of the canal du midi. Students share their holiday memories willingly. However it is really the excellent teaching that brings me back again & again. Starting in the beginners class several seasons ago & eventually arriving in the advanced class with Mattieu at the helm. Mattieu’s class is not simply a French lesson it an experience in French culture. Also his ability to delve into ‘les racines’ of vocabulary whether Latin or Greek is a wonder. Would I recommend AF, bien sûr!!! Alliance Française is a little slice of France in the heart of Cork City.
