    Friendly, welcoming ambiance. Absolutely the best teachers to learn French language!

    It is a really great language school, the groups are the right size and the lessons are always well planned and full of various interesting activities. I would strongly recommend AF to anyone interested in learning or improving their French!

    I have attended French classes here on and off for over 5 years and have only great things to say about the Alliance. It will suffice to say that if you live in or around Cambridge, this is the best place for French lessons if you truly want to progress towards fluency.

    Well done Alliance Francaise for helping us keep up our French and for providing interesting cultural activities to ensure we keep in touch and don’t stagnate as a result of restrictions caused by Covid. Thank you to all involved!

    I was very impressed with the speed that AF switched to Zoom lessons (much better than most schools I think) and the high quality of tuition provided for Luka over the last year.

    Very warm welcome and generosity from Pat and Virginie who enjoy a chat with visitors and are ever-ready to help. I like their film events and the library of French books!

    Je vous remercie et vous félicite d’avoir réussi à nous offrir des classes, séances et activités pendant cette période inattendue et difficile. Elles étaient intéressantes, géniales et stimulantes. Pour moi et j’en suis certaine pour plusieurs, elles étaient un lien vital avec le monde pendant le confinement. Pour ceux qui habitent loin du centre de Cambridge, Zoom nous a offert la possibilité d’assister à des choses différentes, comme Literature in Time et Club de lecture.

    The course I took was very helpful at including all aspects of language learning, including reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as conversational French.

    I am very grateful for having the opportunity to do the GCSE French course. My French has improved immensely, especially my speaking, since we had many speaking exercises.

    You have done me a great favour by putting me in such a good class with Amélie. It is a joy to have classes with her. She is kind, patient and engaged in the work.

    ─ Anne

    I am enjoying the Tuesday morning class. The varied activities are welcome. There is a lot of opportunity to practise one’s French orally and also to work on one’s comprehension.

    ─ Vicki
  • Oct 2020

    Je suis super contente avec les clubs de lecture. Félicitations à toute l’équipe – mais surtout à Gaël …. !

    ─ Jane
  • Oct 2020

    The instructor is a true delight – extremely kind, patient, encouraging, energetic, knowledgeable, cheerful, and clear.

    ─ Lori
  • Oct 2020

    This is a very interesting, well structured and well balanced course. It exposes us to aspects of French culture and also it improves our knowledge of grammar and syntax. Valérie is very good. She is thorough, supportive and very friendly. The group is small and friendly. It is exactly the type of course I wanted to follow and I am lucky I found it. I will continue with it.

    ─ Eleni

    I like that the homeworks are quite flexible so you can do as much as you can or want, and Melody is very supportive. I like the layout that mixes the skills of team exercises and reading and practicing together.

    ─ Melissa
  • Oct 2020

    It was great! I’m certainly enjoying my online lessons. The teacher is very hepful and supportive, very professional as well.

    ─ Mayte
  • Oct 2020

    Merci à tous pour ce cours super agréable et intéressant, pour moi ça marche très bien sur Zoom. Valérie nous a proposé un cours qui s’adresse à nos intérêts et à ces points de grammaire qui continuent à nous donner des difficultés. Nous avons fait des choses différentes comme la création littéraire et la poésie, un vrai défi pour une anglophone.

    ─ Fiona
  • Oct 2020

    The course A1 is brilliant. I really enjoyed it so far. I learnt a lot from it.

    ─ Lubos
  • Jul 2020

    Je voulais juste dire que moi aussi j’ai aimé ces petits amuse-bouche de la littérature française donnés au cours du book club en ligne pendant le confinement. C’était d’autant plus agréable que je pouvais y accéder de ma ville à 40 km de Cambridge! Merci Gaël pour vos explications sur les auteurs et les textes.

    ─ Judith
  • Jul 2020

    Many thanks for teaching my son a new language and for the enthusiasm and warmth we see when he attends. The appreciation of travel, culture and people is hugely important to how we want to raise our son and you guys are outstanding role models for how my child perceives the wider world.

    ─ Simon
  • Jul 2020

    My son really struggles to engage with school work.  Amelie has understood perfectly how to motivate him using topics and games that he enjoys, and now he tells me that he “can’t wait” for his next French lesson. Thank you Alliance Française.

    ─ Harriet
  • Jul 2020

    Merci d’avoir mis en place le Book Club en ligne.  Je trouve que nos séances ont été réussies même chez Zoom, tout le monde a eu l’occasion de participer, même plus peut-être que dans notre situation normale. Le choix de courts morceaux – contes, poèmes – a donné la possibilité de beaucoup de variété dans la même heure, la discussion n’a pas tari, et merci à Gaël de nous avoir fourni tant de mises en scène.

    ─ Sheila
  • Jul 2020

    I enjoyed the talk on Friday given by Nicolas.  All praise to him for delivering it in such good English.

    ─ Linda
  • Jun 2020

    I am extremely impressed by the quality of the online teaching and with the promptness of the decision by the Alliance to use vide-conferencing — and to provide training for the profs. Melody is outstanding and has a very good on-screen presence.

    ─ Bob
  • May 2020

    Classes continue to be excellent. They’re challenging but interesting, friendly and fun.

    ─ Stefan

    Merci beaucoup à toute l’équipe et à Mathilde. Charlie est vraiment content que les cours aient pu continuer en ligne.
