Learn French with Us


Alliance Française Silicon Valley offers French lessons near you, all year long for all ages and all levels. If you always wanted to learn French or improve your skills, this is the right place for you! We have a team of talented and dedicated native French instructors, as well as two locations to better serve the South Peninsula area. Come meet us at our  Los Gatos Center.

Summer Session Classes start online the week of July 6.

All levels and needs

We offer different types of french lessons and classes to suit all our students’ needs and levels. If you are not sure about your level, you can take our free placement test to find out which class is right for you.


Small groups

Our group classes are intentionally small (4 to 12 students) in order to maximize the communication and offer a more dynamic learning environment. All our classes are 10 weeks and are available all year long. All levels are welcome.


Private lessons available

If you prefer more personal instruction, we offer private french lessons (1 to 3 students) at all levels for adults, teenagers and children at times convenient to the students.


Corporate Classes

We also offer corporate french lessons and programs for executives and adapt them to your company’s goals.


Practice French

If you are already fluent in French, make sure to have a look at our cultural workshops at the Menlo Park center. Examples include literature, history, sociology, as well as pronunciation and penmanship. You can also access a wide range of French books and dvds available for free at our library or the Culturethèque, the French  online library.
