Excellence in teaching

We are committed to helping you realize your goal of learning French, and dedicated to the highest standards of teaching quality. We are in the DC metro area (Farragut Square DC for adult classes; Chevy Chase DC for kids classes; Alexandria VA for adult and kids classes); and in Baltimore MD.

Tailored to your needs

Everyone can have fun learning a new language, and get results! With the right method, the right teacher, and your motivation to commit a little bit of time, you can succeed!

There are many teachers and tutors offering French classes, but before you sign up for anything, ask yourself the following: Are they native speakers? Do they have the proper degrees or certifications? Do they have experience, and result oriented teaching?

If you choose The French Academy DC you will be tutored by highly experienced and trained teachers who not only have a passion for their native language, but also have the right teaching skills. We will offer you a learning plan tailored to your needs to make sure you progress at your own pace. You might want to learn in a small group (3 to 6 students) or in one-on-one lessons. Whatever you choose, our goal is the same: to teach you French with the very highest standards.
With the French Academy, you can be sure you are at the right place to learn French!
