ABOUT our classes

Alliance Française d'Omaha currently offers French classes in the Fall, Winter,  Spring and Summer.  From true beginner to advanced, all classes are taught by experienced teachers. What is especially important is that our students are enthusiastic about taking classes because they enjoy learning the French language.

Any student has the option of advancing to the next level if he/she feels ready to do so.  Students may also repeat courses as often as desired. 

If you have any questions about which class to take, please contact us at bonjour@afomaha.org directly for assistance.

Note: Members of Alliance Française d’Omaha receive significant discounts on classes and events!

Once you have signed up for a class, please click the REQUIRED MATERIALS link. All the textbooks, workbooks, and other class texts can be ordered online at Amazon and other booksellers sites.
