French Language Courses

Alliance Française, the French specialist, offers French tuition for:

  • Small classes (8 to 10 students for the majority of lessons, 3 classes with 8 to 12) in North, Central and South Bristol
  • Individuals
  • business

Our lessons are kept informal, motivating and above all professional – our teachers are French nationals, specifically trained and qualified to teach French to adults. Their experience and dedication have always been essential to the success of our courses. Over 65% of our students re-enrol for more French tuition.

In the United Kingdom, courses and cultural events are offered through a well-established network of 13 language centres and 52 clubs.

The Alliance Française de Bristol, established in 1983, with a branch in Bath since 1993, has grown from strength to strength, with more than 60 courses running each year and more than 500 students last academic year.
