Experts at teaching French

We are the experts at teaching French

We take teaching seriously, as the official centre for French language and culture.  With 7 levels of adult French classes running every term, we have the right one for you!  Our loyal teachers receive regular training.  Every teacher is fully qualified: we only hire native speakers who hold  Masters in Teaching French as a Foreign Laguage, Masters in Languages, or CAPES.  Classes are limited at 8 students. 

« The teacher was very impressive, and even inspirational. The classes are small and the quality of the education very high. The courses are excellent value! » Julian (April 2017)

Quality French classes

We bring French culture to you

More than just classes or private lessons, we organise regular quality cultural events and make a point of bringing culture into your classroom.  Literature, wine tastings, talks, film, and children activites too.  Another opportunity to practice your French!

French education

Our values

The values of each Alliance francaise are the same: educating, sharing, improving.  As a charity, our mission is not to make profits but deliver and share French education & culture at the best possible price.  Our board of trustees guarantees the good governance and sound management of our charity.
