French Academy DC, MD, VA:
The French Academy DC, MD, VA LLC was founded in 2013 by two passionate and experienced native French teachers who wanted to provide the highest standards of learning French. They realized that a school was needed in the DC metro area to answer the specific needs of different individuals: adults seeking a tailored-made course, families with children of different ages, and also professionals, for whom flexibility and specific goals are important. Now we are developing into the DC Metro area, offering group classes for adults and children at convenient locations (K Street DC, Chevy Chase MD and Alexandria VA) and flexible one-on-one lessons.

French Language Classes:
Photo of French Language Classes in the Washington DC areaAt the French Academy you can find all levels of general French, but also specialized French, like business, project management, finances, literature and art, as well as youth programs.

Basic French Classes:
The concept is fun and simple: progression through the Blue, White and Red level will make you an intermediate French user. After this step, you can enjoy the Gold level for advanced users. All our levels match the CEFR (Common European Framework for Languages), so you’re sure to have classes in accordance with international standards.

Blue:    Beginner (A1)
White:  Elementary (A2)
Red:    Intermediate (B1)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Gold:    Upper Intermediate to Mastery (B2 – C2)

In addition to the basic classes, we offer reinforcing courses so you can brush up on your grammar and vocabulary.

French Language Workshops:
We offer numerous workshops, ranging from news to literature to art for different proficiency levels.
We developed a business French class to meet the needs of local NGOs: we learn about development work in Africa, project management, establishing objectives, goal setting, meetings etc…

French Classes for Kids & Teens:
Our youth prograImage of French Language Classes in the Washington DC aream is for children aged 1 to 16:

Les moineaux (12-36 months)
- Les poussins (3-5 years)
- Les Momes (6-8 years)
- Les grands (9-12 years)
- Les ados (13 and older)

The course curriculum focuses primarily on oral communication, although reading and writing will be introduced according to the children’s age and abilities. In our French world your children will meet new friends (hand puppets for our youngest students) 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!

One-on-one Lessons / Private French Classes:
If you think you will benefit more from learning at your own pace, or if you feel like you need more focused interaction than what is possible in a big group, private lessons are probably the best solution for you.

We can prepare you for:
- A test: FSI, DELF, TEF, TCF, ACTFL exam
- A new job
- A move abroad

We will do our best to match your needs with high quality courses at flexible times and locations.
