Kids Classes & Summer Camps!
Our online ZOOM classes for children are ongoing and they take place during the school year, from September-June. The next session will be January 8 -February 19.
During the summer, we offer summer camps, Monday – Thursday, 3 weeks in June and 3 weeks in July. Classes are small (4-10 students) and our teachers are French native speakers trained in teaching French as a foreign language. Whatever the level of your class, communication in French is the focus. Our program immerses children ages 4-16 years in the French language, allowing them to learn in a natural way, through visual, kinetic and auditive experience.
We also offer teen classes at the Alliance for those who are no longer kids but not quite adults! It’s a perfect place to connect, learn and practice with some of the other teens here in Houston!
Our summer camp for teens will have the same dates as our Kids Classes above.
