The Alliance Française de Newcastle offers a range of different courses and levels to learn French.

We offer "standard classes".
Our standard classes are based on one-year learning for each level, with classes starting on February each year. 

Beginner 
Continuing Beginner 
Elementary
Intermediate 1
Intermediate 2

We offer "short classes" and "workshops"
Generally, our short classes are based on learning over one term. Throughout the year, we offer workshops that go for a few hours.

Short classes

STANDARD CLASSES - IMPORTANT NOTE : 
Enrolment is available on a term by term basis for more flexibility.

In other words you do not register for the whole year at once. At the end of Term 1 you are able to register for Term 2, and so on. Generally, enrolment for the other terms of the year is available three weeks before the start of the term. 

Enrolment to our STANDARD CLASSES PAST FEBRUARY
It is possible to enrol mid-term and mid-year, depending on your level and the availability in the classroom.
We have a maximum capacity of 15 students per class.

Please,  contact us before enrolling if you wish to join mid-term or mid-year.

For the Beginner' Course. We usually do not recommend starting a Beginner' Course in Term 3 or 4, especially if you have no prior knowledge of the language. Contact us, as there may be other options available.

Last, but not least, if you are unsure about your level, check out our "What is my level page?".
