French Language Courses

We offer online lessons as well as lessons in person. Contact us now for an assessment.

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 and online
  • Online classes
  • Individuals
  • Business and specific purposes
  • Preparation for DELF DALF, TEF and TCF nationalité française

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.

The official centre for French language and culture

Alliance Française is a global network of associations which aims at establishing a dialogue of cultures through high quality French tuition  and organising cultural activities in 130 host countries. 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.

2021-22 promises to be an exciting year, with more French classes and French cultural events online and in person if possible. Never want to miss one of our events again? Subscribe to our newsletter: http://eepurl.com/c3PoQ
