French lessons, cultural events, excursions, shows

The Alliance Française of Johannesburg is a non-profit organisation promoting the French language and culture around the world. We have several course offerings for children to learn the French language in an entertaining way.

Courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL), which structures the learning process according to 6 levels of language skills. Our complete learning packages include group classes with our dedicated teachers, an annual registration for Dibuka (a French-language media centre) and a textbook/workbook.

French for toddlers (Camembear) - Meet the fun-loving and mischievous teddy bear who inspires and motivates young children, encouraging them to speak with confidence in a foreign language! Learning languages is much easier if the child identifies with the subject matter, which is where Camembear comes in! This gorgeous puppet makes children feel like they're really communicating with a French speaker, encouraging them to interact and practice the words and phrases they are learning. It is an 8-hour course for toddlers offered on Fridays from 3pm-4pm.

The French for kids (ZigZag) and French for teenagers (Ado) courses use a dynamic method that focuses on oral communication, games and songs. ZigZag is a 16-hour course for kids offered on Fridays from 3pm-5pm. Ado is a 16-hour course for teenagers offered on Saturdays from 8am-10am

French support classes and homework clubs

An excellent way to boost your children performance at school and to give their best for better results. Enroll them for our support classes starting from grade 6 to 12. Students can enjoy our rooms equipped with learning material every Monday and Friday from 3 p.m to 6 p.m, and every Wednesday from 2 p.m to 6 p.m. Be it for homework clubs or support classes in English, Mathematics or Natural Sciences, your children are more than welcome to take part in these groups limited to 4 students in order to prioritize quality of teaching by our qualified tutors!
