As part of the Franco-American Centre’s (FAC) mission – to celebrate and to preserve French language, culture and heritage – we offer several French classes for adults and children, as well as private and semi-private instruction.  Classes are offered in the Fall and the Spring. Some classes may also be offered during the summer.

If you have questions, please contact Pauline Guimond Grant, the Centre’s French Classes Coordinator. For information on class placement and policies.

Franco-American Centre French Class Policies
Class Fees

Adult Classes: $375 and must be a member of the FAC.  Student memberships are $35, but can choose any level.  Click here for membership options.

Children’s Classes: $125. There is no Franco-American Centre membership required for children’s classes. Some classes, however, may charge a different fee.

Class Placement

It is recommended that students take classes (Fall through Spring) sequentially at all levels to fully benefit from the classes. This is required for absolute beginners who must register for Fall Session Absolute Beginner as their first class.

Students with French background, substantial experience or former French instruction may choose to begin a class mid-year. For example, such a student may choose to begin the Refresher course at any one of the fall through summer sessions. Advanced students may also choose to take Advanced Literature or Advanced Conversation at any point in the year. Students are encouraged to contact Pauline Guimond Grant, French Classes Coordinator, at pgrant@facnh.com or (603) 623-1093 for help in choosing the appropriate class level.
