List of levels
When you register online, a placement test will determine your level of knowledge of French language.
The teaching is organised around four essential skills: listening comprehension, written comprehension, oral expression and written expression. The Alliance française de Lyon uses the following course material: Alter Ego + 1, 2, 3, 4.
We suggest that you take a general French course and in addition optional complementary courses (workshops in phonetics, in grammar, in the development of oral and writing skills, etc.).
In addition to general French courses, the AFL offers workshops that are designed to introduce you to the French and their culture covering a diversity of themes such as French literature, street French (slang and popular language), traditional parlour games, wine and gastronomy, the press, French literature or even the history and culture of France, etc.
