Where We Are Going Today: Alliance Française

  • There are six levels to complete, with each level divided into three sub-levels

The Alliance Française is an international training organization promoting the French language and culture.
The Jeddah branch of the French institution is located on the 2nd floor in Jamjoom Mall. I have received unmatchable teaching throughout the levels I have completed.
Students are taught by professional instructors who instill a passion for the language in their students.
I found each class to be more interesting than the one before. The instructors always make sure each student has a strong grasp of grammar and is able to comprehend spoken French, perfecting pronunciation in the conversation sessions.
There are six levels to complete, with each level divided into three sub-levels. For those who have studied French previously, there is an exam to determine their level so that they are enrolled in the appropriate class.
Enrolling at the Alliance Francaise was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have completed two levels, and I am happily looking forward to the next.
