CURRENT 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.  

The Traditional AFO Classes are broken down into three 10-week sessions offered every Fall, Winter and Spring.  Students may expect to advance to the next level of classes after completing all three sessions (30 weeks total).  A student may also have the option of advancing to the next level if he/she feels ready to do so before completing all three sessions.  Students may also repeat courses as often as desired.  After reading over the course descriptions, if you are unsure about which level you should attend,  we invite you to contact the instructors directly.
