Are you or is your child a new student?


Be sure to arrange a French assessment and a placement test for you or your child (if 5+ y.o.) before registering in a course.


General French courses

Online group courses are taught by teachers with dual skill sets: teaching French as a second language plus distance education. Group classes are limited to 8 students.

Online courses immediately activate your new language abilities through practice with other students and through multimedia tools (audio/video, role-play in small groups...). Homework is required between classes.

At the end of each level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), you can certify your skills by taking an International French language diploma (DELF or DALF) exam. Test sessions are organized in our North York or Mississauga exam centres.


Private online courses

Our private online French courses are dedicated to teens (ages 7 and up), teens and adults, to meet both personal and professional goals. These courses are the most flexible option for students with a busy timetable or who live far from our campuses.

Your private courses are entirely customized. In consultation with you, your instructor will adapt the course content, timetable and pace to your specific needs.

Regardless of where you live, we offer all students registered in our online courses access to multiple resources for practising French as a second language. Thus, you can enjoy practising your favourite second language with Culturethèque, our multimedia online library, or with Frantastique, our mobile app.
