French Classes (Weekend Session)

At the Alliance Française de Karachi, learning French isn’t about cramming textbooks. Guided by our dedicated French professors who are seasoned and native speakers, our small group French classes are offered every two months and create an immersive environment where you can experience the French language through songs, radio, news articles, poetry, events, games and more. You’ll also learn about French culture and history. Ultimately, our goal is to help you master reading, speaking, listening and writing in French in a way that is both rigorous and fun.

There are 6 broad levels to master the French language: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. These are further broken up into sub-levels, each of which is 7 weeks long and covers 40 hours of learning. In order to complete a level, you must complete all sub-levels. For example, to complete the A1 level, you must take the A1a, A1b and A1c courses. For more information about choosing your level, visit our website: https://www.afkarachi.com/frenchclasses/adults

Each class covers 40 hours of learning in 7 weeks for any sub-level, e.g. A1a or B2b.

Most of our classes are available on either weekday mornings, weekday evenings or weekend mornings. On the weekdays, classes are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the mornings from 10 AM to 12 PM or in the evening from 7 to 9 PM. Weekend classes are on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 AM to 1 PM.

Each session of 7 weeks (40 hours of learning) costs Rs. 13,000 plus the annual Alliance Française de Karachi membership fee of Rs. 4,000 per year if you are not already a member.
