Photo of French Lessons in San Francisco Language SchoolLanguage classes at the Alliance cover 3 levels: Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Each level is divided into steps (ranging from 4 to 6), each of them being taught for one session (twice a week for 8 weeks, a total of 24 hours). It then takes between four and seven sessions to cover each level and to evolve, for instance, from a complete beginner to a beginner level 4.

Our curriculum has been modeled after the Common European Framework standards and has been developped as a part of the AF FRAMES project (AF French American Educational Standards).

Department of Modern Languages, College of Marin, North Bay
Courses / Programs
The Department of Modern Languages in the College of Marin provides quality language instruction in a range of foreign languages, including French, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese among others. Conveniently situated in Kentfield, just 3 miles south-west of San Rafael, we offer French classes for students at elementary, intermediate or advanced level. In addition, students have the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) in French.

In California, knowledge of a second modern language is now required in many jobs that involve dealing with the public. These may include Civil Service roles, social work, nursing, and other service-oriented fields.

Another major reason to learn the French language is that you also learn about the culture, philosophy, and civilization of another people, thereby broadening your understanding of the world and enriching your intellectual growth. On the practical side, any field of specialization (medicine, law, journalism, business, teaching) is enhanced if you can speak another language.
