Learn French language and culture with Alliance Française Ottawa

Learning French is more than adding a skill to your resume or crossing off an item on your bucket list–it’s experiencing the culture and discovering possibilities. Alliance Française Ottawa provides you with a holistic learning experience, where you can prepare for certifications while falling in love with the language and culture.

Alliance Française Ottawa is a high-quality French learning and culture centre. Their services help you learn or improve your French, prepare for civil service language tests, take official French exams, and evaluate your level of French. As a cultural centre, Alliance Française does more than teach the language. They provide students with access to events, concerts, and conferences–allowing French learners to immerse themselves in French culture.

Ottawa has been home to Alliance Française since 1905, as part of an international network born in Paris in 1883, with the mission to promote the French language and Francophone culture across the world. Present in 130 countries, all Alliance Françaises are not-for-profit organizations, so your courses are tax-free, and can provide tax receipts for registration fees.

We all learn differently, especially when it comes to a new language. That is why Alliance Francaise offers group lessons, private lessons, and workshops. Classes are online, allowing you to learn from the comfort of your home and use modern digital tools to aid your learning. Review and practice French anywhere through their digital E-Learning platforms. Learning languages through play is also possible via their innovative self-learning app which sends you daily stories, exercises, and video or text.

Their carefully selected teachers offer communication-based learning to help you progress in all four communication skills: speaking, listening, writing, and reading. Each student is also provided access to media and digital libraries. Specific workshops deepen certain aspects of grammar or oral communication while using interaction between students to strengthen your grasp of the language.

Using internationally recognized programs aligned with European educational framework, Alliance Francaise supervises progress according to official standards. Complete learning opportunities and a recognized curriculum contribute to your success in language exams. Alliance Française Ottawa is an official examination centre for several internationally recognized diploma tests, and a trusted instructor for Public Service language exams (SLE Preparation classes).
