What will you discover with AFNO?


“In 2014 I started taking French classes at AFNO to prepare for a trip to France to meet the French side of my husband’s family.

Thanks to the Alliance, I’ve now lost my fear of learning a foreign language.”

Scherri – 3rd year French student


“My overall experience at AFNO has been wonderful.

The classes are unique in that they are taught by native speakers who share a great deal about French culture.”

Cathy – 2nd year French student
