French classes in Nashville

Alliance Française de Nashville offers Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Intermediate level classes at its Green Hills location. AFN also offers two specialty classes: True Beginner French and Advanced Conversation.

Classes are designed cover the material of each level in three 10-week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring).

Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks and workbooks. AFN has several copies of each available in case students have difficulty finding or purchasing the texts online.

Each session costs $290 for members, $335 for nonmembers; the nonmember price includes annual membership dues.

True Beginner French costs $215 for members, $260 for nonmembers. Advanced Conversation costs $150 for members and $195 for nonmembers.

AFN accepts checks and online payments for classes. Full refunds are granted only if requested during the first week of classes each session.

Instructors reserve the right to cancel a class meeting due to illness or extreme weather conditions. In the event of a cancellation, a class meeting will be added to the end of the session.

AFN offers workshops, whose costs and subject matters vary, during the summer months.
