The French Academy DC, VA, MD is a small French school whose mission is to offer flexibility, tailor made and personalized service to anyone wanting to learn French. Our small size allows our team to work intensively on the curricula, exchange information faster, and prepare classes according to the needs of our students. Our instruction is based on immersion, which will have you working proficiently faster than you might expect. Our methodology aims at re-creating a natural language environment with tasks and dialogs that one would encounter living or working in a French speaking country.
We offer classes for adults, corporations, English and French speaking children, as well as private tutoring at all levels of proficiency in the DC metro area and in Baltimore.
As a small school, we have the flexibility to be where we're most needed. That's why we're happy to come to you, giving in-house classes at your place of business or at home. While our office is in Alexandria (we have classes there too), our group classes for adults take place on K street NW (DC) and our children classes are on Saturdays in Chevy Chase (DC). We also offer classes in Baltimore. If you want to visit us, please contact us before for an appointment, since we are not present all the time at the same location.
Our mission is to provide the very highest quality French language instruction in order to help people become better global citizens. We create a fun and friendly environment that immerses students in the language and culture, ensuring students learn French effectively and quickly.
The French Academy was founded by two passionate and experienced native French teachers who wanted to provide the highest caliber of French Language instruction. They realized that a school was needed in the DC metro area to answer the specific needs of different individuals: adults seeking a tailor-made course, families with children of different ages and bilingual families who are looking for a qualitative French education, and also professionals and businesses, for whom flexibility, individualized curriculum and specific goals are important.
We are a small team of about 8 teachers, striving to provide personalized service in the DC Metro area, offering group classes for adults and children at convenient locations and flexible one-on-one lessons.
