The "Tricolour" and more...


Photo of Learn French in the VA, MD & DC areaOur concept is very simple, you have 3 main steps, Blue - White - Red, to become an "Independent User", meaning you can manage most language situations. For each of these steps there are certain skills you need to master, in terms of your oral and written abilities (expression and comprehension).

Once you pass the red level, you are an advanced user. At that level, what we call the “gold” classes, the learning is a bit different; you are ready to discover the subtleties of the language and get trained to talk and write with fewer mistakes. For that purpose it’s essential to talk a lot but also go more in depth into the rules of grammar. That’s why we offer you “Conversation and Grammar” classes.

Along your French journey, you may want to reinforce your skills or do specialized classes or workshops. Check below to see what we have planned!
Clear proficiency levels

Our classes match the proficiency level of the CEFR:
Blue for A1, beginners
White for A2, elementary
Red for B1, intermediate
Gold for B2, C1, C2: operational and advanced

For kids and teens

Our youth program is for children aged 1 to 16:
Les moineaux (12-36 monts)
Les poussins (3-5 years)
Les Momes (6-8 years)
Les grands (9-12 years)
Les ados (13 and more)

In our French world your children will meet new friends (hand puppets…not for the teens, don’t worry) and will have a lot of fun. We use authentic materials: children books, songs, TV programs, movies and magazines for teens, plus a lot of interactive games and activities that make learning grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation very fun!
