Join us online for our December mini session to avoid over a month-long gap between the end of the fall and the beginning of the winter sessions! What can you expect during this two-week session? Most classes will meet 1h30 twice a week for two weeks (6h total). If you’re up for a little challenge, our grammar boot camps will meet twice a week for 1h30 (6h total) and brush up classes will take place 1h30 or 2h three times a week (9h or 12h total) depending on the level.  The boot camps and brush up classes are meant to be review sessions to strengthen your skills and get you prepared for our next session.  Our Theme and conversation courses are meant to provide an overview of many different topics of interest such as French cities, current events, poetry, daily life in France and more.  If you want to meet up with some of your favorite classmates and friends, our classes will create the perfect atmosphere for that.  Finally, if you want to improve your listening comprehension or your speaking skills, our Listen up! and phonetics classes are the perfect for you!

You do not have to be a member to attend our classes. Just scroll down and click on "Register". If you have never taken a class at the French Library/Alliance Française of Boston, please make sure to take a free placement test. No specific class material is needed - handouts and online resources will be provided by your teacher. Please note that due to the short nature of this special session, there will be no trial classes offered.
