French for Kids

The Alliance Française offers French classes for children ages 3-10 as well as French summer camp. Our teachers are native or near-native French speakers and strive to make the classes fun and stimulating. Kids will gain the confidence to speak French and to later use their skills to start reading and writing in French. All classes are held at our center at 2420 N Street in Midtown Sacramento.
